New Pic From 'Line of Duty' Filming Reveals Exciting Season 6 Stunt Scene
As if we weren't excited enough for Season 6 of Line of Duty, a set of images revealing a dramatic stunt scene have just been released on Twitter.
The show's creator, Jed Mercurio, tweeted a series of images from the upcoming season, and revealed they'd been using stunt doubles for what looks like some pretty nail biting scenes.
#LineofDuty6 Huge respect to our stunts team led by Donal O'Farrell featuring ace stunt drivers Steph Carey and Dave Anders. It's easy for me to write "van rolls" - they make it happen. Steph doubled for Keeley Hawes in S2 and hardcore LoD fans will recognise Dave from S4 ... pic.twitter.com/WrRrU8Yzyt- Jed Mercurio (@jed_mercurio) September 19, 2020
"#LineofDuty6 Huge respect to our stunts team led by Donal O'Farrell featuring ace stunt drivers Steph Carey and Dave Anders," wrote Jed.
"It's easy for me to write 'van rolls' - they make it happen. Steph doubled for Keeley Hawes in S2 and hardcore LoD fans will recognise Dave from S4..."
And the stunt looks mega impressive, with one image revealing a white van tipped on its side. Martin Compston (who plays Steve Arnott in the BBC cop drama) also tweeted about their work, writing: "They're top class, Dave showed Arnott the quickest way down 4 flights of stairs."
The actor is referring to a scene in an earlier episode in which his character is chucked down a flight of stairs.
And fans commenting on the post were quick to speculate about what it all means, with one person writing: "Anyone else scared for Steve right now?"

While another agreed, adding: "I have a bad feeling that Steve's going to be in that van."
Others begged to know when Season 6 would arrive, with filming for Line of Duty having now resumed following delays due to the coronavirus pandemic.
The BBC confirmed the good news at the start of this month, with a behind-the-scenes shot of Martin filming a scene inside a police interrogation room.
"Great news! Filming is back underway for series six of @BBCOne's #LineOfDuty," the broadcaster wrote.
According to a press release from the channel, the show will be filmed with the help of "independent health and safety consultants, in full consultation with industry partners" and in accordance with the government's Covid-19 guidelines.
Meanwhile, speaking about the return, Martin added: "It's been a long few months and it will be a different way of working from when we stopped, but I'm delighted to be back on the case with the Line of Duty team!"
I think we can all agree it'll defo be worth the wait when it does arrive!
