A Line of Duty themed hen party!!

Posted by Lisa Shaw on Saturday, May 29, 2021, In : General 
So I read on Twitter recently that a woman in Belfast had a Line of Duty inspired hen party!! That is just genius and combines two of my favourite things! If you haven't heard of Line of Duty - it is focused around AC 12 (Anti corruption unit) that investigates bent coppers. DCI Kate Flemming and Steve Arnott work with Ted Hastings in trying to find out who the mysterious hen honcho "H" or the fourth man is. It's the best drama on TV I reckon.

A quick Google shows that they are qui...
