Line of Duty actor defends show from viewer backlash

One of the Line of Duty stars has defended the show following a backlash from “disappointed” viewers after watching the finale.

Following the last episode of the sixth series, viewers expressed disdain over what they claimed was an unsatisfying resolution to the long-running “H” storyline.

Boyle – who played Buckells in the show’s first, fourth and sixth series – has spoken about the criticism of how the show was wrapped up, during a TV appearance.
