Line Of Duty







Non spoiler

The final episode of BBC One's Line of Duty was watched by an average of 12.8 million viewers on Sunday night, a record for the hit show. 

The BBC said it was the most watched episode of any drama since modern records began in 2002, although that does not include soaps. 

Viewers tuned in to find out the identity of criminal mastermind, H. 

The finale commanded 56.2% of the UK's TV audience, according to overnight figures. 

The five-minute peak audience was 13.1 million, between 21:45 and 21:50, which was the end of the interrogation of the "fourth man/woman", and its aftermath. 

The last time a TV drama got higher overnight viewing figures was an episode of ITV's long-running police drama Heartbeat in February 2001, which had an overnight audience of 13.2 million.
