Line of Duty star explains why his role is getting increasingly difficult

Line of Duty is back for its sixth series – and so are all the fan theories and questions.

The BBC crime drama has been getting increasingly complex with many fans adopting their own methods to keep up with all the twists and turns.

Gogglebox’s Jenny Newby even watches along with a notepad and pen at the ready to jot down all the important information,

But it isn’t just viewers who have been getting confused.

Adrian Dunbar, the actor who plays Superintendent Ted Hastings, admitted he is also finding it more difficult than ever to keep up with the show’s increasingly complex police jargon. Just remembering all those acronyms must be enough for a start!

Adrian, 62, speaking to Elizabeth Day on her How To Fail podcast, also compared the show to his former life working in an abattoir as a young lad in Enniskillen, Northern Ireland.

He said: “I would say emotionally, working in an abattoir is certainly more difficult than doing Line Of Duty because there is something about killing animals that eventually gets to you.

“You think you can handle that stuff, and believe me, it has not put me off a bacon sandwich, but at the same time there is no doubt that it eats into you and gets into your subconscious of what you are doing.

“I mean, I did not literally kill the animals, I was further down the chain, but that was difficult.

“But learning Jed’s lines is also very difficult and the older you get, the more difficult it gets. You know acting — it does not get any easier.

“What used to come easy is now harder — certainly the lines do. But I, like a lot of people I was in the abattoir with, could not wait to get out, particularly in the winter, when you went in in the dark and you came out in the dark.

“That was a real killer.”
