Ep4: PSP does Line of Duty with Dr Jo Knowles and SPOILERS!
Jesus, Mary and Joseph and the wee donkey! We've only gone and made a podcast episode about Line of Duty S6. In this episode, we are joined by Dr Jo Knowles, Senior Lecturer in Media, Culture, and Communication at Liverpool John Moores University.
Document H in your folders today is our discussion of the sinister happenings throughout all six seasons of LoD. We consider what the programme can show us about representations of public services in contemporary culture. How does public service motivation and leadership appear in the show? How diverse and representative is it? But what about that ending? And is Jed Mercurio a genius (answer: yeah, probably)?
Towards the end, we also think about whether this might become a semi-regular thing, i.e., discussing how public services appear and are represented in popular culture. If you have a show, film or book you'd like to nominate, email us at email@example.com or message us on Twitter at @PublicServPod.
