At last night's line of duty. Can anyone explain it to me. I love the series but I'm finding it harder to understand the story line.

Thank you
I wondered if I was just thick not being able to follow this, but it appears I'm not the only one. I got the gist of it last night, but I think it would be better if I had watched previous series!
Nellie May; a lot of what is happening does have a bearing on previous series. I have an idea that some of you watch dramas the way my mother used to - with the latest copy of Take A Break on her lap. Then, she would phone me, ask for the answers to a few of the clues and also ask the who?, what?, why? and where? of the programme she had just (supposedly) watched :-)
What confused me last night was that after the hijack, with a huge amount of bullets discharged, when someone asked about casualties, the reply was " there were none". Did I miss something?
I too wondered at that, gg, at first. Then i played the scene back and saw that all the bullets were hitting the vehicles - not the occupants, who remained inside the vehicles (sensible chaps). When one cop did show himself outside the vehicle, one of the gang was about to shoot him when the undercover cop pushed him aside and fired a couple of shots toward the officer - but not near enough so as to hit him.
Ken5115 you may well be right! In my case, it's sudoku, and I hsve to hide behind a cushion when there is a lot of Blood.

Hc thank you!
Ken 4115 sorry.
Ken's mother and my OH seem the same, he came in during the 5/8 episode of MotherFatherSon and wanted to know what was going on.
Just go with the flow. It will all come out in the wash.
I got confused at that bit GoodGoalie I kept saying to my daughter "How can there be no casualties ? "
When series 4 ended, I told my daughter that in the next series, Hastings would become a suspect. I thought that was a knocking bet. No surprises for me yet though.

o god I thought it was the modern arteests bit
deaf actors have to play deaf characters
and the blind, blind characters
and there are no takers for Marie Antoinette ( sorry this is AB, excuses: coz she ends up with her Head in a Basket!)

and so .... no one wanted to be shot ....
I’d never watched this before and I did understand it although obviously not the back story references.
Addictive hokum :-)
I’ve not watched any of the previous serious so this is all new to me. I also didn’t really understand how they machine gunned all those cars and not one person got injured.
Yes a lot of it stretches credibility while at the same time going for a “docudrama” feel at times.
What I find to believe is that there is a gang of trigger happy cut throat villains seemingly inhabiting a large office somewhere, able to pop in and out seemingly at will under the noses of the police.
But, like I say, addictive nonetheless.
bullet proof car?
