Martin Compston wont return to Line of Duty just for the sake of it

Line of Duty's Martin Compston told the Daily Star Sunday: “People want us to come back and that’s amazing. But Jed will only come back and do more if he believes there is a story to tell.

“He won’t come back just because we’re getting bigger. He wouldn’t do another series just for the sake of it. He writes everything for a reason.

“If I’m told the series won’t come back I would be absolutely gutted.” Martin, 37, can barely walk down the street without someone asking him if there will be another series.

But he has no complaints about the relentless questions.

He said: “Whenever people ask for a selfie or ask about the show, it means they love what we’re doing.

“It can get repetitive in some ways, but I never take that stuff for granted.

“It means what we’re doing is going well. And the fact that people want us to come back again means the world.” There hasn’t been any announcement about the show’s future from bosses.

Even the cast – also including Vicky McClure, 38, above left – is being kept in the dark.

But Martin has hinted fans shouldn’t be too worried and said: “This is nothing new. It always takes a couple of years
between series.”

Line Of Duty has become the biggest show on TV with this year’s run pulling in record viewing figures of 16million. Martin was overwhelmed by the hysteria around it. He said: “It’s great to see people’s reaction.

“But by the last episode I was glad it was done. It was getting intense. I realised people are so invested in it.

“We started this wee show on Wednesday nights on BBC Two and now it is bigger than ever!”

Martin is riding a high as one of TV’s biggest stars and is happily married to actress Tianna Chanel Flynn.

He said: “Line Of Duty is the job of a lifetime. I am so lucky. As a cast we have been through a lot together. We are a great team.”
