Line of Duty finally made its return last Sunday night with season six of the BBC programme. Viewers were excited to see the arrival of new character DCI Joanne Davidson (played by Kelly Macdonald) who led the murder squad. However, after the hour-long episode, fans had so many questions that they needed answering, like, why did DI Kate Fleming (Vicky McClure) leave AC-12? Other fans had come up with a number of theories about the new series, and according to Martin Compston (DS Steve Arnott), some of them were right.

Martin Compston, who plays DS Steve Arnott in the BBC cop drama warned fans that they need to watch the show closely so that they don’t miss out on any clues.

He went on to explain that some fans have already predicted some parts of the upcoming plot.

“For every wild one, there’s about 50 way off, some people are bang on the money,” the actor told Dermot O’Leary on his BBC Radio Two show.

“One of my favourite things is, obviously we can’t comment or like them, but we always get sent theories.

“You’ve got to pay attention, you can’t be on your phone,” he added.

One theory that viewers have come up with is that newcomer DI Joanne Davidson could be linked to ‘H’.

Towards the end of episode one, viewers got a glimpse at the kind of person DI Davidson is.

Not only did she have a number of bolts locking her front door, but there was a photo that showed a picture of her and an older woman in her flat, which could have been her mum.

Episode one concluded with DI Davidson throwing a glass at the photo, but why?

Others have theorised that the new police officer has links to undercover copper John Corbett (played by Stephen Graham).

John was a key character in season five, although, unluckily for him, he was killed by the balaclava men who were working with ‘H’.

Although he was working with the authorities, John began to change and became more twisted as he tried to get justice for his own past.

It was explained his mother, Anne-Marie McGillis, had died in Ireland when he was just a youngster and he blamed Superintendent Ted Hastings (Adrian Dunbar) for her death.

It may seem a bit far-fetched but some Line of Duty fans think that DI Davidson could have a connection with John.

It was always thought John was Anne-Marie’s only child as she gave him up for adoption when he was just a baby, with no evidence of any other family.

With episode one of season six indicating Joanne might also have relationships issues with her own family, could it be she is Anne-Marie’s daughter?

Could she be ‘H’?

Speaking of playing DI Davidson, actress Kelly MacDonald began: “At the start of the series, she’s quite a lonely figure.

She’s struggling and we don’t quite know why that is.

“She’s doing very well in her career. She’s the head of an important case and it’s very high profile.

“She’s got a very stressful position and deals with it well but is quite a closed-off person. There’s a lot going on under the surface with her.

“She gets to the point where she has to make tricky decisions,” the newcomer added.

Line of Duty returns tonight at 9pm on BBC One.
