Series six commences March 21.

I'd never seen it but I've just finished watching Series 1 (2012) on iPlayer.

Probably one of the best dramas I've ever seen (although I don't watch a lot of TV and don't have any paid-for services).

Imo, Series 2 not as good as S1 but just started on S3 which is excellent.

There are some underlying themes which continue so I'll watch all the previous episodes before S6.

"A man can be an artist... in anything, food, whatever.
It depends on how good he is at it.
His  art is death and he's about to paint his masterpiece."

Top film.

Who is the fourth caddy?

DS Steve Arnott is my selection.

Actually, it probably isn't Arnott.

Rather than looking for clues in the series itself, I'm trying to think like the writer and producers.

It's likely to be a bombshell so that rules out the minor characters unless any of them get increased screen time in S6.

Surely can't be Hastings as they've already been down that route.

I think it would be a disappointment if it were to be Osborne, Sindwhani or Carmichael.

It could be Sam Railston but would the actress get such a significant part?

On reflection, Arnott has done too much to expose the caddies and the OCG.

Who does that leave?

DI Kate Fleming.

Series 5 was poor by the standards of the others, and the programme is sadly beginning to repeat itself. 

Series 2 was probably the peak. Series 3 was spoiled by the very silly ending.

I didn't read the above until after my previous post.

The reason I had a hunch about Arnott was that, other than being a bombshell, they made so much of the botched raid in Ep1, that I can't help thinking this has some significance.

I watched the first series. Started off OK but became so far fetched the last couple of episodes were unintentional comedy.

Agreed series 2 was the peak ....episode 1 being the peak of the peak.

Series 5 was very very average.
