star has – once again – delivered hope that the BBC drama will return in some shape or form, teasing the prospect of a film version of Jed Mercurio’s story.
Ever since, fans have been wondering if – or when – AC-12’s epic trio of Kate Fleming (), Steve Arnott () and Ted Hastings (Adrian) could return, after they tracked down bent copper H, known as the ‘Fourth Man’.
While fans are still waiting with bated breath for a season seven announcement, it might be that Line of Duty may swap the small screen for the big screen in future, if the whispers Adrian’s heard are to be believed.
The 63-year-old expressed how much he’d like to be reunited with Martin and Vicky, saying: ‘I think there might be something, there’s something going on out there regarding Line of Duty.’
Speaking to PA news agency, he said: ‘I’m not sure what shape it’ll take… somebody was talking about possibly a film or maybe you know two 90 minutes or three episodes.
‘I’m not sure you’d get a full series. But I think there’s still an audience out there to see the three of us back together again.’
Expressing how much he’d like to return to Belfast where they ‘always had good fun’, he added that a return ‘depends what they come up with’.
‘I think we’ll hear something shortly about it. I’ve got a feeling that before September is out we might hear something about Line of Duty that we can tell people,’ the actor speculated.
Last month, Vicky, 39, and Martin, 38, also while appearing together on Good Morning Britain.
After sharing a picture online of themselves, co-star Adrian and the show’s creator Jed having a reunion, Vicky said: ‘Nothing’s planned as yet, we just went out for a nice meal! I’m telling the truth. Nothing planned and set in stone. We always have a long break in between series…’
Martin added: ‘We’re chuffed that people still want us to come back. The fact that people still want to see the show is amazing.
‘If there’s still a story to be told, I’m sure Jed will bring us back.’
Line of Duty is available to watch on BBC iPlayer.
