Jo Davidson in episode six of Line Of Duty

Line of Duty: The 34 questions Jo Davidson said ‘no comment’ to!

"No comment"

Last night’s series six episode of Line of Duty (Sunday April 25) paused for breath after the onslaught of the past few weeks as Jo Davidson took centre stage.

It featured a whopping-great 24-minute interrogation scene featuring the bent(ish) copper, Ted Hastings, Steve Arnott and Patricia Carmichael.

Throughout this intense scene – where the AC-12 gang tried to get the names of the OCG bosses – Davidson said “no comment” an incredible 34 times.

So what were the questions she refused to answer? And do they give us any clues to what might happen in next week’s series finale?
