Line of Duty’s Martin Compston hints a major character from series 2 could return for Sunday’s final… and may even be revealed as the notorious ‘H’

Line of Duty’s Martin Compston has hinted a major character from series two could return for the final on Sunday night – and could even be ‘H’. 

The actor, 36, – who plays DI Steve Arnott – shared a new video to his Twitter on Friday larking around with Mark Bonnar, who played DCC Mike Dryden. 

In the 13-second clip, Martin sang the alphabet, but when he got to the letter H, Mark popped up beside him and stared into the camera. 

Clue? Line of Duty’s Martin Compston has hinted a major character from series two could return for the final on Sunday night – and could even be ‘H’

Martin then said: ‘Oh, hello Mark,’ before the pair both burst out laughing.   

The new video appears to hint that DCC Dryden will return for the final after serving a suspended sentence for perverting the course of justice in series two.  

It was revealed in that series that he was having an affair with DS Lindsay Denton -played by Keeley Hawes – before pressuring her into having an abortion.

He then used then OCD leader Tommy Hunter’s sex trafficking victim Carly Kirk and authorised the operation that got Hunter murdered, which Denton was then framed for. 

Fans went wild over the video, as they questioned if DCC Dryden is in fact the notorious ‘H’.

Rumours: The new video was posted ahead of the highly-anticipated final which will air on Sunday night

Another wrote: ‘Oooo why are they together, is he going to be ‘H’?

A third said: ‘Is this a clue’, while another wrote: ‘H…I, J….oh hang on. I see what ye’ve done there!! #WhoTheHisH’.  

It comes after Martin has revealed the BBC drama could be coming to an end sooner than everyone thinks. 

Martin – who previously revealed that executive decisions about the series are ‘above his pay grade’ – cast doubt on the show’s future during an appearance on The Jonathan Ross Show.   

Excitement: Fans went wild over the video, as they questioned if DCC Dryden is in fact the notorious ‘H’

In scenes due to air on Saturday’s episode of the ITV show, he said: ‘We won’t come back just for the sake of it. That’s for sure. We’ll come back if there’s a story to tell.

‘If it ends well maybe sometimes it is best to leave it. But genuinely we don’t know.’

The admission comes after Martin teased that fans will get some ‘big answers’ during Sunday’s finale, and admitted he believes it could be the ‘perfect ending’ to the police drama. 

Speaking on the Shrine Of Duty podcast, Martin confessed that he thinks Sunday’s episode could be the best way to wrap up the ‘story arch’ – but he refused to rule out another series.

When quizzed on whether viewers will learn who the illusive ‘H’ is, Martin said: ‘I wouldn’t quite go the Jo Davidson no comment route – but what I will tell you is I think there’s a lot of pay offs coming this Sunday.

‘There’s a lot of big answers and it’s deserved, people have stuck with us for a long time, so there comes a point where the story arch comes to an end.’

Martin also touched on whether series seven is likely, after show bosses previously claimed they believed the current season would be the last.

He said: ‘We don’t know [if there will be another] – that’s nothing new. Jed always takes time after a series, like a couple of months.

‘There’s a lot of stuff above my pay grade like analytics and audience scores. He takes the emotion out of it and looks at all that.’

Admitting it could be the ‘perfect ending’, he said: ‘It’s different this year, because we have to look it in terms of, do people want us back? 10 years in you start to think of legacy, and if it goes down that well it might be the perfect ending.’

‘But then we might go another couple of months and… what I will say is we won’t do one just for the sake of doing it. Jed will only do it if there’s a story to be told.’
