BBC One has finally given us the Bodyguard and Line of Duty crossover we've been waiting for.

Both dramas are written by Jed Mercurio and have proven to be massively popular, so it's only natural that fans should want to see both shows collide, or perhaps even be teased that they exist in the same universe.

Well, the BBC might not have gone that far, but they have edited together a rather amusing clip, featuring Bodyguard's David Budd (Richard Madden) meeting Line of Duty's Ted Hastings (Adrian Dunbar).



"Wondering whodunnit in Bodyguard? Don't worry, Line of Duty's Ted Hastings is on the case," BBC One's official Twitter account posted, with the crudely edited video showing Ted interrogating David.

Of course, the video went down incredibly well with fans of both shows, with many now calling for an actual crossover.

















One fan tweeted: "The drama crossover that the world needs."

Another wrote: "Yess you should do a real crossover #bbccrimedramauniverse throw a bit of casualty in too."

While one added: "Could u imagine the two programmes merging together #mindblowing"

Bodyguard fans were recently hit with a major twist when one major character was seemingly killed off in a terrorist attack, with many suspecting that David himself could have had something to do with it.

However, we didn't actually see that character die on screen, so there's every chance – especially with Mercurio's tendency to subvert expectation – that they could still be alive.

Bodyguard continues this Sunday (September 16) on BBC One at 9pm.
