Martin Compston: 'Line of Duty will return better than ever'
Martin Compston promises that the upcoming sixth season of Line of Duty will be "better than ever".

Line of Duty star Martin Compston has promised that the upcoming sixth season of the hit drama is "better than ever".

Filming on new episodes began in Northern Ireland last month but production was abruptly brought to a halt last week due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Compston, who plays Steve Arnott on the show, flew immediately to Las Vegas to enter lockdown with his wife and appeared via webcam for an interview with Good Morning Britain today.

Quizzed about how coronavirus has affected the series, he said: "I'm in daily contact with the guys, it's crazy times but the script this year, it just seems better than ever.

"[The scripts] just seem better than ever and we will back at some point to get them finished and I hope we will be back bigger, better and longer interview scenes the whole, the whole Line of Duty thing."

Season six - set one and a half years after the events of season five - sees AC-12 investigate an "enigmatic" new DCI, played by Kelly Macdonald.
