Now that Line of Duty is back on our TV screens for series six, avid fans of the BBC series haven’t been able to tear their eyes away from the drama as the investigation into Gail Vella’s murder becomes more complex by the minute.
Viewers welcomed the return of fan favourites Ted Hastings (Adrian Dunbar), Kate Fleming (Vicky McClure) and Steve Arnott (Martin Compston), in addition to the arrival of mysterious newcomer Joanne Davidson (Kelly Macdonald), whose true motives are yet to be determined.
In episode two of the sixth series, people tuning in to watch were overjoyed when AC-12’s Hastings uttered one of his most famous lines, stating: ‘I’m interested in one thing and one thing only, and that’s bent coppers.’ Cue the applause.
Throughout its nine-year run, several Line of Duty phrases have reached an iconic status among fans, so much so that many enjoy playing a round of Line of Duty bingo while watching the action unfold.
Playing Line of Duty bingo is pretty straightforward – have your bingo card at the ready and your ears peeled to be in with a chance of beating your mates. Here’s how you can take part in the procedural-inspired game.

As you’ll see, the card features several phrases and situations that frequently come up in the programme, from the officers saying ‘for the purpose of the tape’ during an interrogation to Steve wearing one of his signature waistcoats.
If you’re an adult and you want to take things up a notch, you can turn Line of Duty bingo into a responsible drinking game, taking a swig every time you tick off one of the boxes.
While watching the new episodes of Line of Duty, some fans found themselves slightly befuddled over the use of acronyms – another one of the boxes to tick on Line of Duty bingo.
One of the terms that had viewers scratching their heads during the series six premiere was ‘CHIS’, which stands for Covert Human Intelligence Source, in reference to an undercover agent who is recruited by the police but is not a police officer.
Another word that still remains a hot topic of conversation on Line of Duty is of course ‘H’, as the officers question who the supposedly remaining corrupt police officer could possibly be.
There are many theories surrounding H’s true identity, including one outlandish hypothesis that H is actually a building. Only time will tell!
Line of Duty returns on Sunday at 9pm on BBC One and is available to watch on BBC iPlayer.
