Line of Duty director hints at seventh season in Scots BAFTA speech



Line Of Duty fans were given a glimmer of hope from the director of the award-winning show after he hinted at a seventh season.

Gareth Bryn was speaking at the BAFTA Scotland award ceremony when he teased that the cop thriller will return for another series during his tribute to actress Kelly Macdonald.

There has been much talk about whether we will get another series of the Martin Compston hit drama and recently creator Jed Mercurio told fans he had no plans for another series.

However Gareth appeared to contradict that when he talked about Kelly’s nomination for the Audience award, later won by Drag Race UK star Lawrence Chaney.

In his video speech Gareth said of Kelly: “She’s one of the nicest, most approachable, down-to-earth people I have had the pleasure of working with.

“Series seven might be on the cards.”

Martin Compston who pays DSI Stephen Arnott, and his AC-12 unit have attracted millions of viewers to become the UK’s most-watched drama series of the 21st century.

BBC drama boss Piers Wenger said that Jed Mercurio and the Beeb were ‘thinking about it’ but hadn’t ‘committed’ to another series.

During his video Gareth made out that Martin Compston had sent him a text about Kelly warning: “Just remember who the original series regulars were.”

“She might be nice — but can she shoot a sniper from 50-metres with a pistol?”
