The making of Line of Duty, as it marks 10 years on-screen: ‘It was really difficult for Martin Compston to take on that accent’

Can you believe it’s been 10 years since Line of Duty first aired? (Picture: BBC/Metro)Line of Duty has had an absolutely meteoric rise from a little-known crime drama on BBC Two to the biggest series on BBC One in just under a decade.

Little did those having a whirl of a time making the series, penned by the legend that is Jed Mercurio, realise just how big it w

It might take a while to adjust – stick with it (Picture: Getty/Metro.co.uk)When was the last time you cooked a meal that took longer than 20 minutes?

Traveller was branded ‘disgrace to community’ after coming out as gay

James has been targeted because of both his heritage and sexuality (Picture: James Lawrence)Aged just 18, James Lawrence was terrified of making a decision that would alter his life forever. As an Irish Traveller, societal norms dictated that he should marry a woman and start a family – which would mean hiding his true self. But coming out as gay, still considered taboo among some Traveller groups, would potentially lead to him being shunned by his friends and loved ones. ‘I was very depressed,’ he told Metro.co.uk. ‘Getting married works for a lot of people. My sister was married at 16 and she and her husband are still very happy and going strong. ‘But it’s not for everyone. ‘When I was 18 I felt enormous pressure to get into a relationship with a woman and get married.

Your weekly tarot horoscope for the week of June 26 to July 2 and Neptune going retrograde

Get ready for a new week (Picture: Getty / metro.co.uk)This week, on June 28, Neptune goes into retrograde. A retrograde is an optical illusion where, from our vantage point on Earth, it looks like a planet is spinning backwards. In Astro terms, it means that planet’s energy can be blocked or reversed. Neptune remains in retrograde until December 3, as it’s a slow-moving outer planet. This also means its impact is not that strong or influential, so don’t worry! During this time, we can expect to revisit some of our creative or more esoteric/magical ambitions, maybe rooting them in reality a little more. Which is no bad thing. Let the tarot and astrology guide you as to what creative ideas or ambitions you might be re-assessing and re-imagining for success, and how, in the we

Senate confirmed justices to end Roe. How will voters react?

The end of Roe v. Wade started in the Senate. It was the Senate Republican partnership with President Donald Trump to confirm conservative judges, and transform the federal judiciary, that paved the way for the Supreme Court's landmark ruling to overturn the constitutional right to abortion. Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell set the strategy in motion, engineering the Supreme Court's makeover by blocking President Barack Obama's nomination of Merrick Garland and changing the Senate's rules to easily confirm Trump's picks. It was a long game that sought to lock in a conservative court majority for decades to come. Trump and McConnell couldn't have accomplished it alone, needing the backing of almost all Republican senators to reshape the bench. Now, Republicans are heading into a No

The Insane Saga of ‘Salt of the Earth,’ the Only Film to Be Blacklisted

Photo Illustrations by Luis G. Rendon/The Daily Beast/Getty/EverettFor over a decade beginning in 1947, the anti-Communist witch hunt that was the Hollywood Blacklist ruined careers, families, and lives. Anyone who came to the attention of the House Un-American Activities Committee (HUAC) and who refused to name names or publicly denounce communism was put on the proverbial list, the notoriety of which stripped them of their ability for gainful employment. No Hollywood player wanted to be guilty by association. Director Herbert Biberman was named in the earliest, most infamous wave of HUAC victims known as “The Hollywood 10.” He was sentenced to jail for six months for refusing to answer Congress’ question about his communist affiliation. Producer and screenwriter Paul Jarrico was swept u...
