‘Line Of Duty’ Star Martin Compston Is Aiming For Series 6 To Be Finished By Christmas

‘Line Of Duty’ Star Martin Compston Is Aiming For Series 6 To Be Finished By Christmas

Line of Duty fans will be pleased to know that Series 6 of the popular BBC show is expected to be finished by Christmas!

Which means we might not have too long to wait before it hits our screens.

Martin Compston (who plays DC Steve Arnott in the drama) revealed the news while chatting to Alex Jones and Chris Ramsay on BBC's The One Show.

While Martin didn't want to give a definite date due to the ever-changing situation, he did explain the team hoped to have it wrapped by the festive season.

"We've got a definite date that we're working towards but there's no point announcing it because the situation's so fluid, and it can change daily, so hopefully, we can get it done before Christmas," he said.

Martin, 36, explained that while filming will resume, it will come with a whole host of changes in order to stick to social distancing measures and make sure the cast and crew remain as safe as possible.

He emphasised that although the filming will be different, it will not compromise the brilliant scripts we've come to expect from the cop drama.

"I think there will be changes, I mean there's going to massive changes off camera just because of the protocols and the social distancing, how many people can be on set, no congregating, people off camera wearing masks, it's going to be a completely different feel," he continued.

"In terms of the changes, we really wouldn't want to compromise the scripts, the scripts are so good, and people are so loyal to the show, there would be no point coming back if we're going to compromise quality."

Shot in Belfast, the show was one of the first of the BBC's major productions to be shut down in March, as a result of Covid-19.

Creator Jed Mercurio had said in May that returning to filming would be "very hard".

"Until wider society has the public health infrastructure of test, trace and isolate in place it's going to be very hard for anyone," he explained.

Of course, there have been many developments since May and it had been previously reported that filming would resume at the end of August.

The next instalment is expected to continue to follow AC-12 as they try to discover the identity of 'H', who viewers discovered to be a corrupt quartet at the end of Series 5.

We can't wait to see our favourite AC-12 trio; Adrian Dunbar (Supt Ted Hastings), Vicky McClure (DI Kate Fleming), and Martin Compston (DS Steve Arnott) return to the fold.

We've got a feeling it's going to be worth the wait!
