The new trailer contains a secret QR code which, once scanned, reveals some dramatic information. The explosive trailer was released yesterday by the BBC ahead of a new series of Line of Duty starting later this month. It is just over a minute long and at the 2-second mark eagle-eyed viewers spotted a QR code at the bottom of a magazine cover.
On the front of the magazine cover is an image of the murder victim Gail Vella who’s played by actress and comedian Andi Osho.
Once the QR code is scanned a letter dated March 21 appears from Chief Constable Philip Osborne addressed to DCC Andrea Wise.
The letter reads: “I think it is high time we had a much closer look at AC-12.
“I’m beginning to question whether this department is fit for purpose especially under its current – and let’s be frank – extremely difficult leadership.
“Ted Hastings doesn’t lead investigations, more commit to a crusade. He is oblivious to the politics of the situation which creates problems for me and problems for you because policing is politics.
“And should AC-12 even be led by someone who himself has been accused of corruption?
“The question is what to do next?
“Is it time for a leadership change? What role should Ted Hastings have in this organisation – if any at all?”

If that’s not dramatic enough there’s another hidden link within the text of the letter.
If you click ‘next’ another Easter egg appears – this time a pharmacy stamp for DS Steve Arnott.
The prescriber’s signature has a secret message in morse code.
According to fans the coded message eventually shows a short clip from the new series where DS Steve Arnott appears to be thinking about his future at AC-12.
