It would be hard to find a Line of Duty character more universally loathed than DS Patricia Carmichael, played brilliantly by actress Anna Maxwell Martin.

But last night fans were left thankful for her appearance when they spotted that she could have given away a vital clue in the complex hunt for ‘H’ or the ‘fourth man.’

During a particular tense interrogation interview scene with DI Joanne Davidson, DS Carmichael appeared to tap out ‘H’ in Morse code – something long-running Line of Duty fans will know and recognise from previous series of the hit drama.

And now fans of the show are convinced that Carmichael’s four taps – which spell out ‘H’ in the SOS language – could mean she has outed herself as criminal mastermind ‘H.’

“Don’t mean to alarm anyone but (eye emoji) at Carmichael’s pen? Tapped four times and H in Morse Code is * * * *” one viewer said, as others lined up to agree with them.

“Is Patricia Carmichael ‘H’ with the obvious pen tap?” another asked. As yet another added to the conversation: “Carmichael is H. She tapped her pen four times – H in morse code – and took a sip of water. The guilty ones always drink water in the interview room.”

However, this wasn’t the only reason that Carmichael raised suspicions with diehard fans, as those watching at home took to social media to share their thoughts on her behaviour.

As well as continuously directing the line of questioning away from identifying corrupt police officers, fans pointed out that Carmichael was acting very shifty throughout the interview scene.

“Anyone else notice Carmichael didn’t allow any questions on the OCG,” one eagle-eyed viewer said.

Others agreed, describing the character as “horrid”, “bent” and “a wrongun.”

However, others were quick to say that they believed Carmichael was simply a red herring simply put there to distract viewers by the show’s creator Jed Mercurio.

“I think Carmichael is way too obvious as H or even bent,” one fan proposed.

Another said: “If it’s as simple as Osbourne is H and Carmichael is doing his bidding then it will be a bit underwhelming as it’s glaringly obvious. I hope there is more twists and turns, I’m sure there will be.”

While the plot remains shrouded in mystery, one thing that can be guaranteed with Line of Duty is that there will be plenty of those.
