Line Of Duty - UK’s Highest-Rated TV Drama In 13 Years - Beats Bodyguard & Downton Abbey

If there were any doubts that Line Of Duty will go down in the history books as one of the UK’s most-adored drama series, those doubts will have been eviscerated by the show’s latest viewing figures.

The World Productions-produced BBC police corruption series reached the penultimate episode of its sixth season on Sunday night in front of an audience of 10.9 million, according to overnight BARB figures supplied by overnights.tv.

Created by Jed Mercurio, Line Of Duty’s near 11M viewers makes it the most-watched television drama episode in the UK since Doctor Who’s Christmas Day special in 2008, which was watched by 11.7M viewers.
