Line of Duty: Download scripts from episodes 1-4

Jed Mercurio talks about writing for Line of Duty as well as sharing scripts from the series.

Here's what he said about Keeley's character, Lindsay Denton:

Line of Duty had originally been conceived as a returnable drama, with the premise being that the fictional anticorruption unit AC-12 would move on to a new case in each series, centred on a high-profile antagonist accused of corruption. The character of Detective Inspector Lindsay Denton would be a contrast to DCI Tony Gates (Lennie James) from Series 1, and we would also depart from the open mystery whereby the audience witnessed Gates’ secrets and dilemma while AC-12 played catch-up. Denton hides her secrets from both the audience and AC-12, making Series 2 more of a whodunit (and whydunit). It was also very important for the long-term development of the returning characters that we portrayed more of their personal lives.

Dr. Who: Keeley to play Ms Delphox

Here's what the BBC is saying about Keeley Hawes' role on Dr Who

Line Of Duty's Keeley Hawes will join the cast of Doctor Who, following rave reviews for her outstanding performance as DI Lindsay Denton in the hit BBC drama. Starring opposite the Doctor, Hawes will guest star for one episode in Peter Capaldi's first ever series as the Time Lord.

Set to transmit in the autumn this year, Hawes will play Ms Delphox, a powerful out-of-this-world character with a dark secret. Travelling across space and time the Twelfth Doctor (Peter Capaldi) and his companion, Clara Oswald (Jenna Coleman), will come face to face with the mysterious Ms Delphox when they arrive on a strange and puzzling planet.

Written by Steve Thompson (Sherlock) the episode will be directed by Douglas Mackinnon (Line Of Duty, Doctor Who).

Commenting on her role, Keeley Hawes, said: “I am delighted to join Doctor Who and to be working with this incredible team. Ms Delphox is a great character and someone I've had a lot of fun playing.”

While lead writer and executive producer, Steven Moffat, added: "Anyone watching Jed Mercurio's amazing Line Of Duty will know that Keeley Hawes is having one hell of year. And now it's about to get even better as she achieves the greatest villainy yet attempted on Doctor Who: she plays a banker."

Doctor Who is a BBC Wales production for BBC One. Filming is currently underway for the new series, which will introduce Peter Capaldi as the next Doctor for the first time to millions of viewers.
