Line Of Duty fans ask how to get witness protection after seeing Jo’s dream life
*Warning: This article contains spoilers for Line of Duty*
The Line of Duty finale might not have won everyone over at the weekend, but there’s one thing everyone seems to have agreed on – that Jo Davidson’s new lifestyle after entering witness relocation looks pretty dreamy.
The character, played by Kelly Macdonald, finally managed to escape the clutches of the Organised Crime Group (OCG) in the last episode of series six.
After being under the control of her uncle and father Tommy Hunter and forced to act as a go-between for the (OCG) during her time in the police, Jo was deemed to have been coerced and was freed from prison.
The closing scenes on Sunday saw her stepping out from a charming cottage in the country, with a fluffy dog and a new girlfriend by her side.
After decades of mistreatment at the hands of criminals, it looked like a pretty ideal set up – and viewers joked about wanting to sign up for witness protection themselves.
They also compared it to the programmes offered to Gill Biggeloe (Polly Walker) and Lindsay Denton (Keeley Hawes), which seem pretty unglamorous by comparison.

The witness protection program looks cracking. Lovely stone cottage in the country and a gorgeous dog thrown in. Where do I sign up? #LineOfDuty
Jo Davidson did alright though. Chocolate box house, golden retriever and a girlfriend. Not bad for witness protection. Upgraded since Gill Biggeloe’s time #LineOfDuty

The real life cottage used to film the show has now been found online by fans, with viewers looking to book their own staycations after being inspired by the episode.
Meanwhile, Line of Duty viewers have been consoled online by Dexter and Game of Thrones fans after being left underwhelmed by Sunday’s instalment.
The show’s creator Jed Mercurio has also given his reaction, saying he knew the last episode ‘wouldn’t appeal to everyone’.
In Sunday night’s series finale, AC-12 learned that Ian Buckells (Nigel Boyle) was the so-called ‘fourth man’ connected to an organised crime group led by high-ranking police officers.
Line Of Duty is available to stream on catch-up on BBC iPlayer
