This series will be slightly different from the others as the show has focused on police corruption and the investigation of corrupt officers.
This time around the team are hunting for an organised, they are not under investigation themselves so far.
It is a completely fresh start for the programme Jed Mercutio, told Pilot TV magazine “That is the fresh ground that we break in the series.
“That we’ve had these shadowy figures, ‘the Balaclava Men’, who are part of an organised crime group and have featured on and off all through the previous four seasons. But we’ve never really gone behind the mask and identified them as proper characters and found out about them.
“That was something that we felt was overdue and so in this season, rather than the customary approach, which is we present a police officer who is involved in a case, and that for whatever reasons there are allegations of corruption which AC-12 investigate, we are looking at this organised crime group who clearly, it’s been established in the past, function to a certain extent through relationships with corrupt police officers.”
“So, rather than looking at the corrupt police offers this time, we’re looking at the other side of the coin, which is the.”
But we are sure at some point corruption will surface, After all we now know who Balaclava man is and he turned out to be more than one person.
Who’lll be watching on 31st March?
