Line of Duty writer drops H bombshell as he says ‘sometimes heroes let us down’

Line of Duty is about to broadcast its hotly anticipated finale this weekend as fans are hoping to finally find out the identity of the mysterious 'H'.

Viewers have been scratching their heads for years as officers have been trying to identify 'H' throughout the six seasons of the BBC police drama.

Show creator Jed Mercurio has now dropped a 'H' bombshell ahead of the final episode.

During BBC podcast 'Obsessed with… Line of Duty', he hinted that the mystery criminal could be a member of AC-12 as he hinted "sometimes our heroes let us down".

Former cast member Craig Parkinson said: "I've had sleepless nights. It's gone from poor Steve…

"Then, I was never worried about Kate until a couple of weeks ago, and now Ted is now the frontrunner.

"You know they'll have to be a national day of mourning if Ted Hastings Carks it Jed."

Jed replied: "It's great people are so invested. One of the things that’s helped the series grow is the fact that people have become so affectionate and supportive towards the AC-12 regulars and it’s great that we're seeing that added on with Chloe's character as well.

"People root for AC-12. They root for AC-12 to stand up for standards and honesty and good practice.

"They want the bad guys caught and so the ax characters are kind of the audience’s proxy for that.

"So obviously they don’t want anything bad to happen."

The writer then dropped a huge bombshell as he added: "Unfortunately, in drama, just as in real life, sometimes our heroes let us down."

Steve Arnott actor Martin Compston confessed that he once leaked a key storyline from the show after he got his timings mixed up.

During series three, he accidentally revealed Keeley Hawes’ return as Lindsay Denton an hour before the episode aired.

Martin discussed the blunder during Redknapp’s Big Night Out, with Jamie and Harry Redknapp, comedian Tom Davis and Daisy May Cooper.

He said: "I was living in LA at the time and I think it was when Keeley Hawes came back so I put out "she’s back everybody" but I forgot the clocks went forward in the UK so I put it out at 8 and the show came on at 9."

The Line of Duty finale airs Sunday at 9pm on BBC One.
