Line of Duty fans convinced AC-12 are headed to Spain to catch Marcus Thurwell – the man at the end of the laptop

LINE of Duty fans are AC-12 are headed to Spain to catch Marcus Thurwell – the man at the end of the laptop.

BBC One viewers were introduced to dodgy detective Marcus played by James Nesbitt in the latest instalment.

The senior investigating officer who was briefly mentioned in series three made a reappearance on Sunday night via a computer database

He was involved in two cases that were being probed by Gail Vella, the TV journalist whose assassination is the mystery at the heart of the current sixth series.

A string of viewers immediately took to social media to speculate on AC-12 next move – with many speculating that the team will head to sunny Spain to track him down.

One viewer posted: "In series 5 they said that H's laptop was communicating from Spain – matches Thurwell's last known location."

Another wrote: "Er… where did we say that James Nesbitt's character was again?"

A third shared: "I have a feeling this isn't the last that we will hear of a Spanish IP. Also a character called 'captain' is credited IMDb and the BBC I believe. Could he be the Spanish contact who was trying to carry out surveillance on Thurwell."

A fourth joked: "Mother of God! Marcus Thurwell is living under the radar in Belfast Marina, not Spain. Check out the building behind him."

In episode five, AC-12 hero DI Steve Arnott, played by Martin Compston was shown discovering Thurwell’s involvement in the case of Lawrence Christopher.

The Cold Feet star surprised fans with his debut after he previously lied about his anger at being snubbed for the show.

While promoting another police thriller also shot in Belfast, James told reporters: “Even though Line Of Duty had been shot here for years I was never considered for it, which has always slightly galled me.”

But the misdirection was all a ruse cooked up with Line Of Duty creator Jed Mercurio to keep his appearance top secret until the big reveal.

James was filming BBC1 series Bloodlands — which aired in February 2021 and was produced by Jed — when he was asked to join Line Of Duty.

As both shows are filmed around Belfast, it gave TV star James the perfect cover story when spotted out filming.

Line Of Duty is back with season six's sixth episode on Sunday, April 25, 2021.
