Legendary horror writer Stephen King has expressed his admiration for Line Of Duty and the famous Ted Hastings character taglines of Adrian Dunbar.
Tapered American author King tweeted yesterday “NOW WE ARE DIESEL!” If you don’t understand, you’ve missed a great streak.
“NOW, WE’RE ON DIESEL! “
If you don’t understand, you’ve missed a great streak.

One of his followers on the social media platform responded by saying “Jesus, Mary and Joseph and the little donkey” to which the Shining author replied “Another big one from Ted Hastings in LINE OF DUTY”.
Main character Ted Hastings is played by Fermanagh actor Adrian Dunbar who stars alongside Scottish actor Martin Compston and English actress Vicky McClure.
Both Compston and McClure expressed their glee at King’s praise, with Martin calling him “stunning” in a tweet and Vicky posting celebratory emojis in response.
Fermanagh TV superstar Adrian Dunbar previously revealed that his late father Sean was the inspiration for some of his now famous Line of Duty quotes.
The Enniskillen man transformed many of Fermanagh’s familiar phrases into what became known as “Tedisms” on the hit BBC show.
