As Line Of Duty fans will recall, Craig’s character Dot gave her last statement to DS Kate Fleming after being fatally shot in season three.
For season five, Steve Arnott had examined a piece of footage that was captured during Dot’s final moments, where she was seen touching the palm of her hand with her fingers to communicate a vital message.
The next Line Of Duty series has been delayed due to the pandemic, and the drama will return in 2021, rather than this year.
Filming for the sixth season began in February, but was postponed until October when the cast, including Adrian Dunbar, who plays Superintendent Ted Hastings, returned to film in Belfast.
