Line of Duty fans have been obsessing over every morsel of a clue since series five aired, earlier this year.
Viewers watching on from home came up with some pretty outlandish theories, suggesting the elusive H could be Kate Fleming (Vicky McClure), Ted Hastings (Adrian Dunbar), or someone else entirely.
And Vicky revealed she loved seeing some of the ‘extreme’ thoughts people had on Jed Mercurio’s police drama.
Speaking exclusively to Metro.co.uk to promote her photo series with Rankin, she told us: ‘People’s thoughts were extreme. Some of them were really on to it. Coming to the end of series five, some of them were clued up but the majority of people didn’t predict the ending.
‘The amount of theories were brilliant. People were [thinking], “It’s an object because it’s got H on top of the building”. It was just one extreme to the other, it was great.
‘I’m really proud of the show, that it can have that kind of effect and give people a bit of entertainment, along with being able to create their own theories and things aren’t spoon fed to them.
‘That’s why Jed is a clever, clever man.’
The 36-year-old also revealed that people behind the scenes got in on the action, and began suspecting everyone.
She joked: ‘Everybody suspected everybody! Even some of the SAs that are in the show, and have been in the show for quite a few years, are going: “I wonder if it’s her or him”.
‘I was just rolling with it.’
That doesn’t mean that Kate isn’t H…
Vicky insisted she has no clue about the upcoming series, but teased that she’s ‘very excited’ for what is coming up.
‘I have no information. I’m not doing that to be difficult, I don’t know a thing,’ she continued. ‘So I’m currently just waiting in the wings, we’ll see what happens.
‘Jed’s scripts are watertight and extremely strong. He’s a perfectionist, he knows exactly what he’s doing. And I’m very excited.
‘I don’t know anything, though. I genuinely don’t. I wouldn’t have a clue.’
Vicky recently took part in a photoshoot with noted photographer, Rankin, for his Loyalty & Love collaboration, with Marriott hotels.
The BBC star star was joined in front of the camera by fiancé Jonny Owen, whom she starred with in This Is England and Svengali.
Speaking about why they decided to take part, she explained: ‘Me and Johnny don’t really do photoshoots together for any reason in particular, we’ve only done one before. This just made sense.
‘There was a reason for it, because we’re away for work quite a lot. It’s something we know a lot about, we spend a lot of time in hotels and away from home.
‘It’s just something positive, there’s nothing negative about it, it’s about love and loyalty and travel and things that mean a lot to us and actually help us to enjoy the times when we’re away from each other or away from home. So that’s why we did it.’
Jonny also revealed the photographer made them feel ‘so comfortable’ on set – but there was one thing that shocked him about the final photos, which they both saw blown up at the launch party at the beginning of the month.
‘When they blow pictures up of your head, you can’t believe how big your ear is,’ he added. ‘They’re very unforgiving when they’re that size.’
