But she admitted the two series, both created by Jed Mercurio, made the police look cool.

Dame Cressida said she was tempted to watch Line of Duty after meeting star Vicky McClure.

She conceded that the hit, which also features Adrian Dunbar and Polly Walker, was a “good drama”.

But Dame Cressida went on: “I was absolutely outraged by the level of casual and extreme corruption being portrayed.”

She also took aim at Bodyguard, starring Richard Madden and Keeley Hawes.

Telling Radio Times how the series was perceived, she said: “It drove everybody round here absolutely up the wall.

“I actually did have to switch it off after about 20 minutes.

“The moment when the Home Secretary made a pass at the protection officer was just beyond me.”


Dame Cressida, 58, added: “Both series actually make us look a bit cool and interesting — a net positive, probably.

“They bring in interest and applications. Even though it’s all completely ludicrous.”
