Line of Duty showrunner Jed Mercurio has shared a first look at a dramatic van stunt for series 6.
With the hit BBC show finally back in production, Mercurio has been teasing fans with some behind-the-scenes, on-set snaps – and now he's provided a taste of some of the action.
Taking to Twitter, the writer and producer shared four images of a stunt sequence involving a rolling van.
"#LineofDuty6 Huge respect to our stunts team led by Donal O’Farrell featuring ace stunt drivers Steph Carey and Dave Anders," he wrote.
"It’s easy for me to write 'van rolls' - they make it happen. Steph doubled for Keeley Hawes in S2 and hardcore LoD fans will recognise Dave from S4..."
Last month, Sergeant Steve Arnott actor Martin Compston spoke about the "massive changes" that'll be in place off-camera as the cast and crew film in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic.
"There's going to be massive changes off-camera, just in terms of the protocols and social distancing, how many people can be on set… just people off-camera wearing masks and what not. So, it's going to be a completely different feel," he explained.
"In terms of changes [on-screen], if there are changes that are possible in terms of moving scenes which were indoors [to] outdoors where possible. But, we really wouldn't want to compromise the scripts. The scripts are so good. People are so loyal to the show. There would be no way, no point, in coming back if we were going to compromise quality."
