To wonder if I’ve got time to see all of the Line of Duty before it airs?

I haven’t seen any of the episodes. But everyone is talking about it and who H may be. I’m also obsessed with who H might be and I haven’t seen even one episode! So I’m wondering if I can catch up. And if so, where can I see them? Thanks.

Ah line of duty is totally worth the bbc licence fee in itself imo!!!
Yes, start from series one and work your way up, it's totally worth it. You won't have time to watch tonight's finale but you won't mind as you'll be hooked (just make sure you avoid spoilers after tonight!)

No there isnt time, each episode is 1 hour, and each series had 6 episodes. We just watched series 1-5 in the last 2 weeks (I'd seen before but DD wanted to watch LoD and I thought it would be difficult to start with series 6, but I've been glad of the recap) and the last episode of series 5 is 1 hr 20 min.
I thought series 2 and 3 were the best. Keely Hawes was amazing.

We went back and watched them all from season 1. It's really worth it because the same characters, locations and stories keep coming back, and I've enjoyed it much more this time round because the previous series have been fresh in my mind. I'm dreading trying to avoid all the spoilers this week though - we're on series 5, doing 1 or 2 episodes a night. Binge watching is one of those things I really miss from pre kids days!

You can watch it iplayer. Each episode is an hour and there are 6 episodes per season and 6 seasons. You won’t be able to watch it all before tonight’s episode airs. We started rewatching it earlier this week as we’d forgotten quite a few details. We’re on season 4 episode 3 and will likely have to have a social media blackout while we catch up tomorrow. If you’re prepared to do a social media blackout, then you can probably get through a fair chunk today and tomorrow.

Same here. I think I missed a few key clues and details (and forgot some stuff) so really good to have it all to mind.

You do need to start at S1 To understand the whole story as every series connects together.
No way you couldn't fit it all in before 9pm but if you avoid spoilers and don't look at anything you could do it over a few days and watch tonight's episode late. It's well worth it.

Took me about three weeks to watch series 1-5, then I binged the first 4 episodes of 6 before ep 5 a couple of weeks ago.
Well worth it but you do really need to concentrate. There's no point bunging it on while the kids are up or you're trying to doing other stuff.

Only if you have a time machine, OP!
Treat yourself to watching them from S1, at your leisure, on iPlayer. There are bits from as far back as S1 that are relevant in S6: a whole 5 series of loose ends, gradually getting tied up (and some just left hanging, presumably to be resolved in S7).
There's loads of relevant backstory in the earlier series, so it would be daft to miss them.
I have to watch each episode twice as well, to make sure I haven't missed anything. I watched last week's last night, to refresh my memory before tonight's season finale.
You are in for such a treat. I almost wish I hadn't seen any, and still had them all to look forward to!
