Line Of Duty Viewers Think They've Worked Out Who The Fourth Caddy Is After Episode One

Line of Duty fans are convinced they have cracked who the fourth caddy is in the very first episode of the latest season.

In the season five finale, AC-12 discovered a hidden message in original Caddy Dot Cottan's video of his dying declaration, revealing in Morse code that there were actually four caddies all along.

After discovering Dot, who kicked the bucket back in season three, had signalled four dots, Steve Arnott said: "The letter H in Morse code is four dots. 'H' is not an initial, it's a clue. Four dots. Four caddies. Four police staff in league with organised crime."

This could mean collectively the four caddies are main villain H, or they all work for H in league with organised crime within the force.

So far, three caddies have already been unmasked: Dot, ACC Derek Hilton and Gill Biggleloe. But a fourth is still out there.

Viewers of the police corruption crime drama saw what many believed to be a straight up evidence - and it was in Ian Buckells' office.

One eagle-eyed Twitter fan account posted a photo of the scene, saying: "Golf clubs in Buckles' [sic] office?

"Golf = caddy."

Not the clearest way to explain what they were thinking but a good spot nonetheless.

Others had noticed the clubs, while some just had a feeling.

One wrote: "Having watched #LineOfDuty seasons again back to back I am 95% sure the final member is Ian Buckles.

"He's the only one who's been hovering throughout the seasons and acting real sus when you look at how he handles some of the cases. Kate is too obvious."

Another asked: "Buckells is H isn't he?"

A third questioned: "Everyone saw the golf clubs behind Buckells in his office right? If only golfing terms bore some significance in the world of #LineOfDuty."

Another thinks it's a bluff: "Well spotted! They were put there for the more observant viewer to see. But is it just another fiendish red herring?"

Fans who tuned in to watch the first episode last night were absolutely shocked by the opener.

We've been waiting months for the next instalment of the gripping series and the premiere certainly did not disappoint.

One of the massive talking points of the first episode was DCI Joanne Davidson (Kelly Macdonald) and her subordinate PC Farida Jatri (Anneika Rose) getting busy, with the more senior officer abusing her position of power.

Vicky McClure, Adrian Dunbar and Martin Compston were all back in their roles, however we were introduced to a new addition in the AC-12 team with Shalom Brune-Franklin.

Macdonald also debuted as guest lead Detective Chief Inspector Davidson, the senior investigating officer on an unsolved murder case whose suspicious conduct attracts the attention of Anti-Corruption.

Everyone was also lapping up Ted Hastings' new catchphrase, 'houl yer whist'.

Episodes will air on a weekly basis on the BBC and on iPlayer, and there will be seven instalments to enjoy this time around, making it the longest series yet.

Shooting wrapped in November, with creator Jed Mercurio paying tribute to the entire crew for their efforts amid the pandemic.

He said: "#LineofDuty6 We couldn't have done it without the dedication of cast, crew and supporting artistes to rigorous CoViD safety.

"Not a single day's filming lost, and 100+ colleagues finished the shoot in good health. We looked out for each other. We followed the science."
