Created by Bafta-nominated writer Rob Williams, who wrote #KillingEve and #TheVictim, #Screw focuses on Leigh, a female prison officer who works in an all-male prison, which already tells us that there'll be a *lot* to unpack.…
Most exciting of all, the show's cast is made up of stars from #DerryGirls, #LineOfDuty and #IMayDestroyYou, meaning we'll be seeing some of our favourite on-screen talent acting alongside each other 🙌 Image
The six-part drama has been described by Channel 4 as a depiction of a prison like we've never seen before, showing "the uncensored, terrifying and often darkly funny reality of life as a prison officer in an all-male prison in 21st century Britain.”…

No one tell me as I’m only at the end of season 5, but but I think the whole H thing is a red herring. Did dot really blink on h?! Really?!

Oof the withering look the geordie di got after the pr woman mentioned the evidence was... So withering.

Also I’m beginning to think the pr woman is H or whatever letter it actually is

Ah @bbcnews. Started as a newsroom assistant, then I went into local radio. Via uni, I got a gig on On The Record at 4 Millbank (now defunct Sunday show) and then I freelanced for a while. I worked with some of the best. Now I'm desperately saddened by the @bbc. A thread...
What depresses me is that the @bbc has always been a political football. Even in the Birt days, there was always pressure to be pro Govt. But editorial teams soldiered on and told the story they should tell. Today, we have something pernicious and quite different: ...
A bunch of client journalists like @laurak and @chrismasonbbc who no longer abide by Auntie's own impartiality principles taking every opportunity to make opposition parties look awful. Of course, this is because current Tories are now running the show. It's a win-win for Govt...

Were you frustrated by the ending of #LineOfDuty? Imagine what it's like to fight police corruption in real life for 34 years – and still not have seen your brother's murderers brought to book? Maybe, just maybe, things are going to change for @AlastairMorgan next week. 1/9
After 5 failed investigations, an 'independent panel' has been reviewing the Daniel Morgan case *for 8 years*. It reports on Monday. Has it got to the truth? Or did corruption (which the police have admitted in the past) block the panel's way too? We're about to find out. 2/9
You have almost certainly heard of the case. Daniel Morgan was a private investigator killed with an axe in a pub car park in south London in 1987, possibly on the brink of exposing police wrongdoing. Among the many remarkable things about the case is this. . . 3/9

Theologian's thoughts on that #LineofDuty #LineofDutyFinale. First: I'm gutted not to have the big happy ending & I'll say later why it might not have hurt for Mercurio to give it to us... but of course... it does make sense. We have a world where there's no 'big bad' because 1/n
...there doesn't need to be; evil flourishes because of mundane everyday greed, stupidity, vanity, pride, fear, anger (Ted betraying Corbett), even misdirected love. The devil/ the big H (Hunter) left ages ago and the little Hs went right on doing his work 2/n
...the dots are not connected, there is no master plan, there is just the latest version of the banality of evil. Buckells is a C21st (Arendt's) Eichmann, a not-very-clever bureaucrat failing upwards to power & downwards to murder without really thinking about it 3/n

A sadly realistic ending #LineofDutyFinale
This is what would happen in real life: a big police cover up #LineOfDuty Osborne will be gently retired with honours (health reasons?) Carmichael promoted, Kate & Steve's careers will flounder - integrity always scares others - & corruption will continue.
Such an embarrassing scandal would NEVER be allowed to come out. Bravo Jeff Mercurio for daring to give us, not the ending we all craved for but the one which rings true. #LineofDutyFinale

If AC-12 in Line of Duty was a pharmacy department (thread)

Every pharmacist when a doctor doesn't write the controlled drug prescription correctly
When the service lead pharmacist tries to understand why senior pharmacists wont use their independent prescribing but more junior ones will !

If you’re a #LineOfDuty Fan you might of heard about the QR code Easter egg.

Here is a summary, nothing much in the way of spoilers, but there is a handful of videos on YouTube which go into more detail if you really want to go that route.
@jdpoc A few weeks ago a few people were posting cryptic messages connecting #LineOfDuty with a QR code. It took folks quite a while to find it without guidance but it’s there on the magazine cover which highlighted the murdered journalist.
@jdpoc Some people have had more technical skills than me and have screencappec this QR code, cleaned it up, and scanned it which takes you to a website which give you this:

Q1. To whom will Hastings speak through a megaphone, saying 'This is Superintendent Hastings. You'll be treated fairly with the full protection of the law.'? The teaser is edited to make it look like he will say this to Davidson and Fleming but may be misleading. #lineofduty
Q2. Why will Davidson and Fleming be surrounded with their hands up and a searchlight shining down on them? #lineofduty

LINE OF DUTY SEASON 6, EPISODE 2 REVIEW. It's time to see how many of last week's 141 questions (153 in the end) have been answered. #lineofduty

*Thinks*: Hmm I'd better give Line of Duty a go. Shouldn't take too long to catch up with everyone... Sounds like it's only a season or two in...
*Opens Iplayer* MOTHER F*****!
So... Discount Mike Ross from Suits only decides to start investigating pre-outbreak Morgan because the cop he fancies said it was OK?
"Haven't I made it up to you."
Surely getting you off makes up for tricking you into getting me off?

“How do open-ended questions improve interpersonal communication?”

TL;DR: They do not.
Let’s explore a common #communication assumption about 'open' and 'closed' questions with some data to see what they look like, and what they do, in real interaction.
1. Thread. 🧵
2. Google "open and closed questions” and you’ll find loads of articles and (often written or hypothetical) examples about them - tweet 1 is just one of many.

As @d_galasinski pondered recently: “I wonder who is responsible for fetishising open questions.”
3. When we examine questions as they are actually used - ‘in the wild’ - we find that yes/no (‘closed’) questions routinely receive more than ‘yes/no’ in response.

And just because a question is ‘open’ doesn’t mean it'll be answered.

Let’s see some examples.

Some funny goings on in #Liverpool under the stewardship of #JoeAnderson 👀

My current viewpoint might be influenced by some of the TV shows I watched during lockdown #Subura #Gomorrah #GangsOfLondon #LineOfDuty

But, it has a whiff of a Mafia fiefdom🤯…
- Merseyside Police investigating City Council
- Lancashire Police - #OperationSheridan
- Serious Fraud Office, North West Serious Crimes Unit & GMP investigating property scams
- Council finances not being signed off by an auditor for the last 5 years

Something smells fishy🐟👀
Now, I realise it sounds bonkers to link TV shows about the Italian Mafia and how they infiltrate local councils and municipalities - I mean, that wouldn't happen in Lancashire or Merseyside... would it!?

Well, ye. It would...

Have a look 👀…
