Line Of Duty fans shocked by jaw-dropping final scenes of first episode
Viewers are wondering who will leave the room alive after a gripping showdown between DCI Huntley and a colleague.
Line Of Duty fans were left reeling as the first episode of the fourth series ended on a shocking cliffhanger.
The police drama returned on Sunday night with newcomer DCI Roz Huntley (Thandie Newton) on the hunt for a serial killer following two murders and an abduction.
But in tense scenes at the end of the episode, Huntley appears to have been killed in a struggle with forensics co-ordinator Tim Ifield (Jason Watkins).
They have a scuffle during a row and Huntley hits her head and collapses.
But as Ifield powers up a chainsaw and prepares to dispose of the body, Huntley flicks open her eyes.
Fans are now concerned that the officer is about to meet a grisly end.
With Huntley’s life hanging in the balance, fans cannot wait for next week’s instalment of the BBC1 series.
Hopefully the week will fly by!
