Series seven of Line of Duty is yet to be confirmed but with the series six finale breaking records as the most watched episode of a drama in the 21st Century, it seems unlikely the Jed Mercurio thriller is over just yet.
Speaking at the Bafta TV Awards red carpet last night, the Superintendent Ted Hastings actor told host Tom Allen there ‘might be a way to go’ with the twist.
Asked if he was one of the five people who knew Iain Buckells would be unveiled as ‘the fourth man’, Adrian said: ‘ Absolutely we knew who H was.’
‘There may be a way to go with all that,’ he cryptically added. ‘We don’t know yet, do we? There are rumours. Who knows?”
Fans were divided over the reveal that the dopey officer Buckells was the criminal mastermind pulling the strings behind the OCG (Organised Crime Group), to say the least.
Owen Teale, who stars as suspect Chief Constable Philip Osborne), revealed he still gets hounded by fans thinking he’s H.
He told Radio Times: ‘I’m now defending myself in the shops, with people saying, “I know you’re H”, and I go, “No, no, no, wait a minute, we all know who H is now”.
‘They go, “No, no, no, no, I don’t believe that for a second. There’s no way he would have had the power to do that. But your character was the original”.
‘They remember it, right from the beginning. He was the guy who actually messed with Steve Arnott, he bullied him and that’s why he jumped into AC-12 and jumped out of firearms.’
The BBC is yet to announce what’s in store for Line of Duty, but chief content officer Charlotte Moore hinted at more episodes.
She said: ‘Addictive event television, Line Of Duty has kept the nation guessing for the last seven weeks, so it’s no surprise that last night’s jaw-dropping finale set a ratings record.
‘Jed Mercurio is a master of his craft, and I would like to congratulate him and the entire cast and crew for delivering such an incredible drama series. I’m looking forward to having a conversation with the team about where we go next and what the future of the series might be.’
Line of Duty is available to stream on BBC iPlayer now.
