The star is currently appearing as wealthy businessman Dan Docherty in BBC One’s The Nest, with the show set to come to an epic conclusion this Sunday.
It’s not yet known when Line of Duty will be back on-screens but filming is sure to resume in the coming months, so hopefully, it won’t too long to wait.
Line of Duty can be streamed on BBC iPlayer.
