LINE of Duty fans have driven Amazon’s Alexa voice assistant over the edge with endless questions about the identity of “H”.
Videos have emerged online in which fans ask Alexa to unmask the corrupt cop but the device refuses, saying she’s “too scared” or “can’t be bothered”.
The question has plagued viewers throughout the series but the big reveal will identify the corrupt police officer at the top of the organised crime chain who has been pulling the strings.
Social media user, Daniel Smith, was among those who could not bear to wait. He filmed himself asking his Alexa: “Who is H?”
The exasperated device replied: “Honestly, I can’t be bothered to talk about this anymore.
“Too many people are asking me who H is.”
Gareth Evans, from Aberdare, Helen England, from North Tipperary, Teresa Rodmell, from Milton Keynes and Ollie Charles, from London, all asked the same question but got a more sinister response.
Alexa replied: “I know who H is, but I’m too scared to tell you.”
Even Line of Duty actor Tomi May, (OCG) villain Miroslav in the series, posted a video on his Twitter account of him taking part in the social media trend.
He tweeted: “Just to clarify #Alexa…”
The video shows the actor asking his own device, in character: “Alexa, who is H?”
She said: “I know who H is, but I’m too scared to tell you.”
Tomi replied: “That’s right, because we get Ryan to slit your throat.”
Twitter user @bongbrummie replied: “We need this Alexa Echo to be interrogated by an Echo Plus or above.”
The Birmingham-born actor tagged fellow star, Gregory Piper, who plays troubled kid turned OCG member Ryan Pilkington.
