Line of Duty fans find major clue to H’s identity as common word is misspelled

Daily Star’s Inside Hot TV newsletter sees Ed Gleave send you telly’s hot takes straight to your inbox every Sunday

Line of Duty fans spotted a major clue in the hunt for the elusive H on Sunday night.

As Jo Davidson chatted to a mysterious figure via an encrypted web chat service, keen-eyed fans spotted something they were certain could point to H's identity.

Viewers of the show have been attempting to work out who H could be since the first series aired.

And now, as the word 'definitely' was misspelled as 'definately', they're convinced that Superintendent Ted Hastings, played by Adrian Dunbar, is the mysterious baddie.

"I’m calling it now…" one viewer wrote on social media. "‘H’ will be identified because he can’t spell DEFINITELY. He spells it DEFINATELY. As does Hastings, I might add."

"We all know who spells definitely incorrectly…" another clued-up fan said.

Someone else quickly typed: "Oh my GOD Hastings spelt definitely wrong when he was speaking to someone on the laptop… whoever Jo is speaking to spelt definitely the same way as Hastings. Mother of god."

A fourth viewer added: "Ted spelled ‘definitely’ wrong before. If Ted is H, I’m done," accompanying the tweet with a GIF of Ted saying ‘Mother of God’.

"I'm exhausted after that," another social media user said. "And I can't cope thinking about Ted spelling definitely with an A. It can't be. Can it?"

Ted first misspelled the word back in 2019, and fans were convinced it was a clue rather than a blunder in the well thought out police drama.

"Jed doesn’t do anything by mistake," one viewer pointed out at the time, referring to the show’s creator Jed Mercurio.

However, it was later revealed that Hastings was pretending to be H typing on the computer, as the AC-12 insider.

"People forget that Hastings was PRETENDING to be the unknown user and so deliberately spelt definitely wrong," someone pointed out on Twitter.

"I swear Hastings was pretending to be H typing on the computer? A few seasons ago no? Did he spell definitely wrong?" another wondered.

But someone else retaliated: "How did Ted know to type 'definitely' in this way in series 5?" – implying that Hastings certainly could be H.

However, other fans were convinced that Tommy Hunter is H, after he was revealed to be the DNA match for Jo Davidson.

Hunter was killed off in series two after being moved from the witness protection safe house and suffering severe injuries in the ambush.

He was later murdered in hospital at the command of Matthew 'Dot' Cottan, by DC Jeremy Cole.

Played by Brian McArdie, the Glaswegian was a paedophile and the first leader of the OCG.

Later in the episode, Davidson was instructed to 'get rid of' Fleming via the encrypted chat system.
