LINE OF DUTY RETURNS for its fifth series at the end of this month, in what the show’s creator, Jed Mercurio promises will be an explosive entry in the saga of corruption within the police force. Hints that “the identity of ‘H’ may have something to do with past events in Belfast” only makes me worry more about the seemingly inevitable reveal.
If Hastings IS ‘H’… well, let me just say this: I’ve never really trusted the guy. Could the show’s most morally unshakable hero really be a crooked conman? I believe so. It’s his life’s work, after all. He’s told us as much.
