Adrian Dunbar has just made the hunt for H in Line of Duty a little bit easier. Or has he?!
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”.
Ted is a fan favourite precisely because he and the rest of AC-12 conduct themselves to the letter of the law. He explained how hard it would have been to carry on playing the role. He added: “To have found out I was somehow an arch-villain… I would have been in real difficulty accepting that.”
Adrian also told us how Jed Mercurio approaches the show. He said: “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.”
So, it seems like Adrian Dunbar has cleared his name… or has he? Line of Duty has surprised us enough times as is, so maybe Adrian is just trying to throw us off the scent?! After all, no one was expecting Ryan Pilkington to show up again! We'll just have to wait and see whether we'll ever find out who H is!
