Punters Identify 1/4 Favourite In DNA Riddle
Line of Duty fans were left in the dark at the end of the latest episode after Jo Davidson was revealed to have an interesting blood relative and now the odds on the identity of the mystery man have been revealed.
Sunday’s fourth episode of series six ended in dramatic fashion as DS Arnott informed superior Ted Hastings that a harvested DNA sample matched dodgy Detective Jo Davidson to a character already familiar to AC-12.
Punters are already on the case and believe they are onto something with original OCG leader and series two victim Tommy Hunter, who is now a hot 1/4 favourite with BoyleSports to be revealed as the man in question. Sergeant Danny Waldron, who starred in series three, is also in the frame at 9/2 along with Scot coppers Derek Hilton (8/1) and Mike Dreyden (9/1).
Another popular theory suggests Davidson could be a long-lost sister of Stephen Graham’s character John Corbett, the undercover officer who met a gruesome end in series five. He was later identified as the son of Ted’s old flame Anne-Marie McGillis and is a 10/1 shot to be the revealed as the answer to the gripping Line of Duty DNA conundrum.
Lawrence Lyons, Spokesperson for BoyleSports said: “This DNA mystery is on everybody’s lips and we’ve been inundated with requests as punters clearly believe they’ve figured this one out. Most were wanting to back Tommy Hunter; he fits the bill and had a similar Glasgow accent, so he is our hot 1/4 favourite as a result.”
