The mystery surrounding the identity of ‘H’ has been the subject of speculation since the show was first released in 2012, when detectives from the anti-corruption unit discovered that there were four officers working within the police force associated with the underground criminal network.
On Sunday’s final episode, Inspector Ted Hastings, played by actor Adrian Dunbar, asked his colleague Chloe to check the constant spelling mistake of the word ‘sure’, which had become synonymous with the ‘fourth man’ in previous episodes.

He’s very skilled, very good at what he does, he’s the go-to guy, but he’s definitely not a popular guy – he’s grumpy and kind of a job, I guess.
“I don’t think people give him enough credit just because of his personality!”
