Line of Duty: Who are the three leads and what’s happened to them in past series?

The sixth season of Line of Duty is almost upon us, meaning it’s time to swot up on police acronyms and start unspooling your ball of string for the evidence wall.

Kelly Macdonald is the latest guest star to join the series, alongside regulars Vicky McClure, Martin Compston and Adrian Dunbar.

It’s been nearly two years since the hit police drama with the labyrinthine plot was on screens, so here’s a reminder of the three key team members in the show’s anti-corruption unit, AC-12, and what they’ve been up to over the past seasons…

Known for: Speaking in inscrutable police acronyms and wearing unforgivable waistcoats.

Martin Compston, 36, was born in Greenock, Scotland and is a former professional football player. His first ever film role was in Ken Loach’s Sweet Sixteen, and he has since appeared in series such as In Plain Sight, Traces, and The Nest.

What’s happened to Arnott over the past five series?

In series one, Arnott led the investigation into DCI Tony Gates (the show’s first ever guest star, Lennie James). Arnott didn’t have an easy ride in this series: he was kidnapped and tortured, nearly losing his fingers. In the end, he and Gates developed an unlikely respect for each other, before the case came to a gruesome close with Gates walking in front of a truck.

Series two saw Arnott cheat on his girlfriend, DS Nicola Rogerson (Christina Chong), with a female witness. It was a digression that AC-12 target DI Lindsay Denton (Keeley Hawes) used against him when she was called in for interrogation. In a twist, and despite his penchant for a waistcoat, Arnott somehow managed to win over Denton and seduce her, too – but only to gather evidence against her.
