Line Of Duty’s Adrian Dunbar says it’s a big ‘relief’ to NOT be H

Line Of Duty’s Adrian Dunbar has made a huge revelation about his character Ted Hastings – as series six continues.  

The star, 62, admitted it was a big ‘relief’ to discover his character wasn’t H at the end of series five, after he got off with a written warning following hints he could have been the infamous villain.

After the bombshell last series that H was an organisation of bent coppers as opposed to the one figure, fans have been theorising who could be the mysterious fourth policeman embroiled in the scandal.

After learning Hastings wasn’t the copper in question, Adrian said it would have been ‘difficult to accept’ his character was a ‘baddie’ or ‘arch villain’.

Speaking on the How To Fail podcast, he also admitted that he’s recognised by real police officers and gushed that its a ‘privilege’ to be in a long-running show.

Reflecting on finding out he wasn’t H when he got handed the series 5 script, Adrian said: ‘It was absolutely a relief for me, as I spent all this time playing this character as I saw him with a sense of duty and a moral core.

‘And to have found out I was somehow an arch villain… I would have been in real difficulty accepting that.

‘Also Jed was aware that our audience and audiences in general, like to think that those people who are in charge do have a sense of moral fortitude and that there are people out there who will do the right thing…

‘So all that was riding on the idea that Ted could be a baddie, so I am glad he came out of it with flying colours.’

At the end of the last season of the show, it had been suspected that AC-12 head Ted could be H – the fourth man at large during an ongoing hunt for the ‘bent copper’. 

However beloved Ted managed to clear his name and was given a final written warning for misconduct, meaning the mystery and hunt for H continues.

Elsewhere on his podcast appearance Adrian revealed that real police officers do recognise him and sometimes give a wave or thumbs up.

He said: ‘The police recognise me and might give me a thumbs up and it’s quite good fun that.

‘I think they do appreciate that Line of Duty does try and show that there is a lot of slog in police work. 

‘There’s lots of sitting in front of computers for hours on end trying to find one clue… and we a bit of that and show it takes a long time to get to the answers sometimes.’

LINE OF DUTY: WHO IS THE FOURTH ‘H’?

Line Of Duty creator Jed Mercurio excited fans when he shared the first clue about the plot of season six to Twitter.

Uploading a snap of a packet of the Australian chocolate biscuits TimTams with the caption ‘#LineofDuty Series 6 Plot Clue No. 1’, fans began to ferociously speculate as to what it might mean.

But one plot point hanging over the next season of the show is about the identity of the ominous ‘H’.

While the mystery was somewhat answered in the season five finale, it was also revealed that there are FOUR people pertaining to be ‘H’, with the final one still unknown.

So who could it be?

She was one of season five’s stand-out characters, swooping in towards the end of the series to interrogate Ted Hastings – highly suspected to be ‘H’ at the time.

And while she simply seemed to be excellent at her job – and hellbent on uncovering the corruption within the department – could it be that Patricia Carmichael was SO keen to pin the blame on Ted to take the focus away from herself.

Could SHE be the fourth ‘H’?

Her position of power and respect, along with her unnaturally steely and cut-throat demeanor, could well point to this.

Ted Hastings was pinpointed by viewers of the show, as well as the characters on the show, to be a candidate for ‘H’.

But it seemed he was exonerated by the end of season five, allowed to walk free.

But could be potentially be triple-crossing us all? Could he in fact STILL be the potential fourth ‘H’.

The biggest issue with this theory is that Gill Biggeloe – one of the three revealed to be ‘H’ – was so against him. Surely she wouldn’t be working to deter him if they were in league?

UNLESS, she doesn’t KNOW he is the fourth ‘H’?

DCC Andrea Wise (Elizabeth Rider)

Detective Chief Constable Andrea Wise was new to the show in season five and is another high-powered contender for ‘H’.

She has been constantly interfering when it has come to supporting AC-12’s investigations, removing them from the investigation into Operation Pear Tree. She also instigated the Ted Hastings investigation.

She is also keen to cover up police corruption, despite announcing at the end of season five: ‘This constabulary will work tirelessly to root out rotten apples in its ranks.’

PCC Rohan Sindwhani (Ace Bhatti)

Police and Crime Commissioner Rohan Sindwhani demanded to be ‘in on’ a meeting between Andrea Wise and Ted Hastings. This might be a small clue but any clue could be valid at this point.

Any shady behavior suggests ‘H’ is at play, and so Rohan could indeed be culpable.

Adrian also reflected on his career, and time working in an abattoir as a young man, saying that he feels lucky to have landed Line Of Duty. 

He said: ‘Now I realise what a privilege it is to be in a long-running TV series. The downside is you get attached to your character and the other characters and you don’t want it to stop, and with Jed you don’t know if you are going to be killed or end up being a baddie.

‘But the success coming now at this stage has been good for me, as I feel I am ready for it, and to deal with it. Line Of Duty is so big, so you have to know how to deal with the attention.

‘I know myself better now. I was working in an abattoir when I started so my expectations were quite low. So everything seemed a bit of a fluke, so you don’t seem to take them that seriously.’

Dozens of fan theories about H have sprung up since the show started, with many of the actors refusing to comment on who it might be.    

Vicky McClure recently admitted she hasn’t revealed H’s identity to her closest friends as she believes ‘people want to enjoy the escapism’ surrounding the villain. 

On remaining tight-lipped about the character, the thespian told Stylist: ‘I’ve never been offered anything to reveal H’s identity. And they’d be idiotic to try. 

‘Even my friends and family don’t want to know [spoilers]. I was watching the first episode [of series six] the other day on my laptop [before it came out on the BBC]. And Jonny [her fiancé] came in. He just went, ”I don’t want to know.”

During the last season of the show, it had been suspected that Hastings could be the ‘H’ – the fourth man at large during an ongoing hunt for the ‘bent copper’.

However, a new wild theory involves John Corbett’s widow Steph, after fans noticed an intricate ‘clue’ hidden in her kitchen tiles during Sunday’s episode of the show.

During the latest instalment of the hit police drama, many viewers took to Twitter to share their thoughts after noticing the very telling detail. 

Fans were convinced that the ‘H’ pattern in Steph’s tiles was a link to the man or woman AC-12 have been hunting for the past six series.

One person on social media wrote: ‘Steph’s kitchen tiles say ‘H’ on them… just saying… #LineOfDuty.’

Another person said: ‘Her kitchen tiles are in the shape of a ‘H’. What could this mean? #LineOfDuty #LineOfDuty6 #LOD.’

A third exclaimed: ‘There’s a H in the tiles!! #LineOfDuty.’

Another joked that there was no way the tiles were relevant, and said: ‘Stop it! We’ve gone too far. The final ‘H’ is not going to be identified by a kitchen tile ffs. 

LINE OF DUTY SEASON SIX: WHAT ARE THE MAIN FAN THEORIES?

Season six of Line Of Duty has left fans with more questions than answers, with viewers flocking to Twitter to question what exactly is DCI Jo Davidson is up to, whether Kate Fleming has really left AC-12 and who is H?

Here, MailOnline examines some of the most prominent fan theories  

Kate Fleming HASN’T left AC-12 and is working undercover   

One of the most shocking discoveries was AC-12’s Kate is now working with a new team- with some fans suggesting she could even be the infamous H.

While chatting to her new gaffer DCI Davidson, Kate said: ‘I got fed upon nicking coppers, I’d rather go after the psycho who murdered Gail [Vella].’

But despite seeming confident in her new role, some viewers were left wondering if all was at it seems and theorised that Kate could still be undercover for AC-12.

Even after she tipped off Davidson and incurred the wrath of Ted Hastings, fans have continued to speculate that she is so deep undercover that even Hastings is having to keep her true agenda secret.

DCI Jo Davidson is being blackmailed by an Organised Crime Group  

Jo has already survived a grilling from AC-12’s top team and appeared to clear her name when it was ex-girlfriend PS Farida Jatri who seemed to have taken part in corruption.

However, Jo was seen hitching a ride with known bent copper Ryan Pilkington and taken to collect a burner phone, making her look suspicious once more.

Fans, however, are convinced the DCI is being blackmailed by an OCG, following her emotional outburst when she was summoned to pick up a new burner.

DCI Jo Davidson’s mother is Anne-Marie McGillis

Fans speculated over who Jo’s mother could be after she was seen in a photograph in the first episode.

Many theorised her mother has something to do with season five character John Corbett’s [Stephen Graham] mother Anne-Marie McGillis, who was killed by an Irish Republican paramilitary group sometime after 1989.

Gail Vella is still alive

Although season six has centered around the murder of journalist Gail Vella, one obscure theory is that she is in fact still alive.  

Craig Parkinson, who played Matthew ‘Dot’ Cottan in the show, said on BBC Sounds podcast Obsessed with Line of Duty: ‘Somebody is in that flat and there’s some connection with Gail Vella, the investigative journalist.

‘You don’t cast someone like Andi Osho and then just have her as little magazine prints and stick them up on a kitchen wall.’

Sarah Millican – who also appeared on the podcast – went on to suggest Vella may have been a former lover of DCI Davidson’s.

Gail Vella is still alive: Is it true? It seems unlikely that the scale of police corruption is so huge that they could fake a murder victim

DC Chloe Bishop is Tony Gates’ daughter

Bishop is one of AC-12’s newest recruits, and as Gates and his wife Jools had two daughters, Natalie and Chloe, viewers have suggested their shared first name ‘can’t be a coincidence’.

Gates’ daughter was last seen in season one in 2012, which means she’d be roughly the same age as Bishop is now.

Fans have suggested that Bishop either took her mother’s maiden name or the name of a step-father, so that her true identity remains a secret – for now.

Gates died at the end of the first season when he walked into a busy road after getting a confession from gang leader Tommy Hunter, who had been blackmailing the police officer into covering up their criminal activity.

DC Chloe Bishop is Tony Gates' daughter: Is it true? The dates and facts line up, but there still isn't enough to write it off as a coincidence just yet

Bent copper Ryan Pilkington is actually a honest policeman 

Ryan first appeared in the show’s first season as a teenage foul-mouthed messenger for the criminal gang working with bent copper DCI Gates. 

His escapades on the show have taken an even darker turn in past seasons, as he attempted to cut DS Arnott’s fingers off with bolt cutters, and also killed undercover cop DS Corbett.

However, the show creator’s Jed Mercurio teased the possibility that Ryan has ‘turned a new leaf’ and isn’t a spy in the Central Police, despite what fans may think of his criminal past. 

Jed claimed: ‘Now that Ryan’s a police officer, viewers will have to wait and see if he has turned over a new leaf or if he remains a dangerous inside man for organised crime.’ 

Bent copper Ryan Pilkington is actually a honest policeman: Is it true? Considering the only person who seems to be spreading this is the creator, it would be a great twist
