Re: GOOD TV

I've liked Line of Duty from the start but I found Sunday's episode difficult because of the frequent use of police acronyms....reminded me of my time in Ofsted. Just checked with Google and The Sun comes to the rescue. https://www.thesun.co.uk/tvandshowbiz/8767468/line-of-duty-acronyms-ocg-uco-itv-...

I read an article about Keith a few years ago. Despite his appearance he was a lovely guy. One of his elderly neighbours praised him for the support he gave to her and would not have a word said against him. RIP Keith. Nolic
