Line of Duty series 4 took another devious twist – but not quite in the way we were expecting.
- Meet the cast of Line of Duty series four
- Who is Line of Duty series four star Thandie Newton?
- The real AC-12: discover the police anti-corruption officers who inspired Line of Duty
In episode two of Line of Duty, DCI Roz Huntley overhears a forensics officer bagging up a key piece of evidence, writing out the reference number KRG-13.
The only thing is, Huntley thought she heard KRG-30, as we saw her write the number down on her hand to remember.
She later attempted to tamper with the evidence in order to conceal her involvement in the murder of Tim Ifield – but viewers had spotted the slip-up.
13, not 30!! That's going to be massive. #LineofDuty

#LineofDuty So how many of us thought…'It was 13 wasn't it? She wrote 30' ? ??

#LineofDuty I shouted 13 not 30 repeatedly. Why am I protecting the baddy? What does this say about me? Am I a Trump supporter???

Even the series’ star Thandie Newton was shouting at the screen watching back home…
KRG 30…!?!?!?!?!?! Come on Roz!!!!!!!!

However, just when we thought we knew how this was going to end, Line of Duty caught us off guard again. Huntley spotted her error when she switched the evidence bags with the vital blood samples, and hastily scribbled a correction.
It was enough to put both the murder investigation and AC-12 off the scent – but for how long?
Viewers think this last-minute switcheroo still might come back to haunt her.
#LineofDuty she misheard 13/30 -yes!!! Oh wait she figured it out – Noooooooo!!!

If "30 oops we meant 13" doesn't drop her in it…. #LineofDuty

She won't get away with it ? She has already lost control & planted evidence will convince AC12 of her guilt. She is toast #LineofDuty

Even if not everyone’s entirely sure the little fridge scene is ENTIRELY accurate…
