The Line of Duty withdrawal symptoms have been pretty bad, despite *that ending*.

What did I used to do at 9pm on a Sunday? What did I talk about with friends? What GIFs and memes did I search for? (I won’t answer that last one)

With Line of Duty seemingly on the brain, I found myself drifting towards thoughts of AC-12 and the similarities with research. Don’t believe me?

  • As researchers, it’s vital we conduct ourselves to the letter of the law. The letter. And that law is the MRS Code of Conduct, amongst others. 
  • Your work holds people to account and sometimes it feels like other teams don’t want you there. The daggers, the digs, the lack of cooperation.
  • NPS. VOC. UX. IDI. CATI. We love an acronym.
  • You can’t beat a good interview for getting closer to the truth. Interviewing is an art form, knowing which questions to ask and when.
  • Someone will definately pick up on your spelling mistakes.
  • If you’re not careful, the end can be a disappointment. Maybe not Buckles-level disappointment. But you don’t always find the answers you’re looking for.

Jesus, Mary and Joseph and the wee donkey, I’ll find an analogy in anything.
