Line of Duty star Vicky McClure has warned ‘nobody is safe’ ahead of the season six finale.
Fans have been glued to their screens for every second of the BBC drama, which is coming to an end on Sunday.
As we all attempt to unpick the clues and finally find out who H is, Vicky and Martin Compston – aka Kate Fleming and Steve Arnott – had their say on whether the AC-12 crew could ever be ripped apart.
Speaking ahead of the series airing, Martin said: ‘We come as one package in our heads.
‘With Jed [Mercurio, show creator], he would never do it for the sake of doing it, it’d be to further the story.
‘But it would be really interesting in this series, or the next, if one of us goes. It’d be hard to think…

‘Going to work, and not knowing one of them wasn’t going to be there… That would be interesting.’
Recalling the moment Craig Parkinson, who played Dot Cottan for the first three seasons, was written out of the show, Kate confessed this was a huge shock.
And she teased that we could have more surprises on the way.
‘It was strange, wasn’t it, when Craig left,’ she continued. ‘Craig Parkinson was part of the show for the first three years, we was well on our way then, got into our stride and then he went.

‘Reading that in the script was like, “Oh my God, that’s… That’s huge”.
‘Nobody is safe.’
The current series is coming to an end on Sunday, with a string of characters potentially facing a fatal ending.
BBC bosses released a new photo from the finale, showing a shaken Kate joined by Steve at what appears to be a shootout.
Ted Hastings (Adrian Dunbar) has been tipped to get the chop, with the head of the department being forced into early retirement as AC-12 is disbanded.
Craig Parkinson is among those predicting Ted’s exit in the Obsessed With Line of Duty podcast, telling listeners: ‘I was never worried about Kate but I think what Jed was very mischievously trying to do was signpost that it could be Steve.
‘But now after this episode, with those images of what Ted’s been reduced to, and physically and mentally where he is, yes, I do believe he’s going to exit the show and he deserves nothing but a hero’s exit.’
We’re not ready to say goodbye…
Line of Duty series six concludes on Sunday, at 9pm, on BBC One.
