The trailer showed Adrian Dunbar’s character Ted Hastings saying over a megaphone, “This is Superintendent Hastings, you will be treated fairly with the full protection of the law.”

The clip also shows Steve Arnott (Martin Compston) looking serious.

Vicky McClure’s alter ego, Kate Fleming, stands with her hand over her pistol in the flashing blue light of police cars.

It’s not clear what’s going on, but fans think Kate looks guilty.

One said, “Kate Fleming, H?”

Another agreed, “I think so. Undercover all the time. “

A third tweeted, “Kate looks very guilty in this preview clip.”

Will the new Line Of Duty series include the pandemic?

The series, in which filming was suspended for several months due to COVID-19, will reflect the pandemic to a small extent.

There will be no coronavirus storylines and the characters will not be socially distant.

We have crept in some allegorical points regarding the current situation.

But creator Jed Mercurio said there are “allegorical dots” for eagle-eyed fans.

Speaking to Inside Culture with Mary Beard, he said, “It is filmed in such a way that the pandemic is invisible. We have chosen to consider some allegorical points regarding the current situation, so keen-eyed viewers should be careful for those. “
