Ahead of the penultimate episode airing this weekend, ITV This Morning hosted by Eamonn Holmes and Ruth Langsford had invited two police officers into the studio to discuss how close the BBC drama was to reality.
Peter Bleksley, a former Undercover Detective, also recognised for his role on Channel 4’s Hunted sat alongside Marc Cananur a serving Detective Sergeant and discussed the mystery of ‘H’.
Keen to hear their theories, viewers saw Eamonn quiz: “Who is H? Who do you think H is? Do you have a guess?”
Peter was first to answer and immediately threw all previous suspicions into the air: “Is it a person or a place?
“Cast your mind back to the flats where people were being held, do you remember one was Flat B?”
As for what Marc thought, he decided it was best to keep his opinion to himself and be diplomatic, he said: “You’re taking it from a very evidential perspective. I’m going to receive judgment for my thoughts so I won’t say anything.”
Eamonn then turned his attempts to asking about the incorrect spelling of ‘definately’ which was seen when H spoke to John over a live web chat back in episode three.
Viewers were convinced the use of the ‘A’ instead of an ‘I’ was a clue.
“You’ve analysed this more than I have at this moment Eamonn,” Marc responded jokingly.
As for how realistic the programme is compared some of the work the police carry out in reality, Marc commented: “It’s an entertainment programme.
“I’m a fan, I want to know what happens, every week. [But] people would be turning off in their drives if they had to see what happened on a daily basis.”
And Ruth was keen to find out: “Why? Because it’s not as exciting?” To which Marc clarified: “Yes”.
It comes after actor Adrian Dunbar who plays Superintendent Ted Hastings spoke out about ‘H’ and the current storyline.
During a conversation with The Telegraph, Adrian revealed he “didn’t know” which culprit was ‘H’.
Many viewers have been in uproar since a suggestion came to the forefront claiming Hastings could be the culprit.
And the Irish actor answered whether or not there was any truth int he claim. he said: “Well, that’s the question a lot of people are asking. It’s difficult, you know… we might find out at some point.”
After some teasing, Adrian clarified he “didn’t know” who the mysterious bent copper is, Hastings or not. And if Adrian doesn’t know, then surely it can’t be the Superintendent?
But to add to this, filming for series five wrapped up a long time ago, and all the episodes have been scheduled to air later this month and into May which suggests viewers may not out who ‘H’ is until series six, or even worse, series seven.
To add to this, there are many questions left unanswered when Lee Banks returned on Sunday night to visit Hastings, but what did he want?
