Nigel Boyle made an appearance on television this morning, following the concluding episode of Line of Duty season 6. The actor, who plays DSU Ian Buckells in the crime series and was unmasked as corrupt police officer H in last night’s episode, has defended the show.
He made his comments after some viewers branded the finale “disappointing” on social media.
The Birmingham-born star said that when people have a chance to reflect on the episode, they will be more understanding.
Nigel said the creators had opted for a “subtle” conclusion rather than a “big shoot out”.
Fans are still waiting to find out if there will be a seventh series.Insurance Loans Mortgage Attorney Credit Lawyer

Talking to BBC Breakfast hosts Jon Kay and Louise Minchin, the TV star said: “I think there is always going to be some element of disappointment, but you can’t have every series with a big shoot out and urgent exit required.
“Sometimes, the subtler message is more important,” he explained.
Nigel admitted that after sharing his own tweet last night, he hadn’t had time to look at social media properly as he had to be up early for interviews.
The presenters filled him in on the general feeling.
