cast of Line of Duty series six! Recently seen in BBC’s Giri/Haji,

– and the series is lucky to have her.
where she normally plays morally decent characters to root for, Mercurio has

to see Macdonald in the interrogation room.
The series leads Vicky McClure, Martin
Compston and Adrian Dunbar are also set to return. Read our review of series five.
