Ted Hastings leaves Line of Duty fans 'roaring' as he switches up iconic catchphrase in explosive interrogation
LINE Of Duty's Ted Hastings left fans 'roaring' after switching up his iconic catchphrase last night.
The popular BBC crime drama continues to impress and the penultimate episode hosted yet another intense interrogation interview.
Superintendent Hastings (Adrian Dunbar) is famous for his catchphrases on the show such as "Mother of God", "Sucking diesel" and "Jesus, Mary and Joseph."
However he put a new spin on one of his popular lines during the show's longest interview scene yet.
Hastings, along with DI Steve Arnott (Martin Compston) and Patricia Carmichael (Anna Maxwell Martin) questioned DCI Jo Davidson in a bid to find out more about the OCG, the identity of 'H' and Gail Vella's murderer.
Scared her life would be in danger if she exposed some of the bent police officers involved, Jo replied "no comment" to many of the questions, which caused a frustrated Hastings to blurt out: "Jesus, Mary and Joseph and the wee donkey can we just move this thing along before it drives us all around the b****y bend."
Viewers were left in hysterics as one wrote: "Jesus, Mary and Joseph and the wee donkey: I have a new favourite catchphrase #LineofDuty."
Another fan roared: "Jesus, Mary and Joseph and the wee donkey. A new Tedism I love it! #LineofDuty."
"#LineofDuty "Jesus, Mary, Joseph and the wee little donkey!" Is arguably my new favourite quote and the best line of the series!", a third user exclaimed.
While a fourth follower wrote: "New favourite phrase from #LineofDuty "Jesus, Mary and Joseph and the wee donkey!"
Ted has been replaced at the helm of AC-12 by hard-faced Patricia Carmichael, who some fans think might be 'H'.
They spotted the Detective Sergeant hammer her pen on the desk four times – spelling out 'H' in Morse Code.
The criminal mastermind – known only by the single letter – has long been thought to be at the heart of police corruption on Line Of Duty.
Many now put Carmichael, played with loathsome brilliance by 43-year-old Anna Maxwell Martin, as favourite to be exposed as H.
