Line of Duty fans are fearing the worst for their beloved trio of characters after the actor who played baddie Dot Cottan dropped a cryptic comment on BBC Breakfast.

With just two days to wait until the eager-anticipated season finale of the pulse-racing BBC cop drama, fans up and down the country have been trying to formulate their own answers to the show’s biggest questions.

But one person who has been lucky enough to see the final episode, airing on May 2, seems to have suggested things don’t bode well for Steve Arnott (Martin Compston), Kate Fleming (Vicky McClure) and Ted Hastings (Adrian Dunbar).

Craig Parkinson played notorious bent copper Matthew “Dot” Cottan in three seasons of Line of Duty.

He was quizzed on what fans can expect for Sunday’s episode but, understandably, remained tight-lipped.

That is until the very end of the interview.

“If you’ve been invested since season 1 and emotionally invested in our main trio of Kate, Steve and Ted then be prepared on Sunday, be prepared,” he said.

Naga Munchetty, hosting in the studio, replied: “Oooh, that’s quite a thought. I don’t want to say what I think it means.”

But plenty of viewers did voice their thoughts and were fearing the worst ahead of the season finale.

“Ermmm no, Dot, nothing better happen to my trio on Sunday night,” one tweeted. “I will lose the proverbial plot.”

Another wrote: “Things don’t bode well after Craig Parkinson on BBC Breakfast this morning.”

A third added: “Ooft! That was a cryptic comment at the end of that interview! Nearly dropped my tea! Could mean anything! Can't wait for Sunday.”

While a fourth commented: “I didn't think I could get any more stressed/excited/apprehensive/ready for Sunday night, but I'm kind of wishing the days away! If anything happens to our friends…”

This weekend’s nail-biting finale could be the last ever Line of Duty episode, according to Martin Compston.

He said on the Jonathon Ross show that writer Jed Mercurio “won’t come back [to the show] just for the sake of it” and that the ending follows the “natural story arc”.

Episode seven of Line of Duty airs on BBC One at 9pm on Sunday (May 2)
