A lot is on hold at the moment, and especially in the world of entertainment, where production on lots of TV shows and films has been postponed due to the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic.

Thankfully, lots of celebrities have been reuniting on video calls to give us the mini-episodes and reunions we've been hankering after. The Line of Duty cast is the latest to reunite for a Zoom call, and give us some hints about the upcoming (ish) series in the process.

Vicky McClure, who plays DC Kate Fleming posted a picture to Instagram of a Zoom call between herself, Adrian Dunbar (Lieutenant Ted Hastings), Martin Compston (Detective Stephen Arnott), and Jed Mercurio (the show's creator and lead writer), alongside the caption, "LOD in lockdown. Missing this lot x‬".

Production on the sixth series of the show was halted earlier on in year as a precautionary measure, but the government is planning to ease restrictions on filming for TV shows in the UK, provided that social distancing measures are observed.

A spokesperson from the Department of Digital, Culture, Media and Sport confirmed to entertainment news site, Screen Daily, that guidelines which are due to be published later this week, will look at how filming on tv shows can begin again, with staff and cast socially distance while working.

The DCMS spokesperson stated, "The government is working closely with the screen sector to understand how different types of productions can comply with social distancing guidelines, and give confidence to people in the TV and film industries that there are safe ways in which they can return to work."

Doesn't tell us who H is though, does it?
