Quarantine viral videos: Line of Duty meets Unforgotten meets Life on Mars meets Midsomer Murders

There’s a lot of crossovers going on this viral video arranged by showrunner Jed Mercurio for charity Asks For Masks.

Most of the regular cast of Line of Duty (Adrian Dunbar, Martin Compston and Vicky McClure) show up, of course. But also joining them are various members of cop shows past and present:

  • Sanjeev Bhasker’s DI Sunny Khan from Unforgotten
  • Philip Glenister’s DCI Gene Hunt from Life on Mars/Ashes to Ashes
  • Neil Dudgeon’s DCI John Barnaby from Midsomer Murders

Watch the video them give ’em some cash!
