He plays a Detective Sergeant onscreen, so a game of Cluedo should surely be no biggie for Martin Compston, right?
Think again. The actor, 36, took to Instagram with a video of him playing the much-loved detective game and his bid to work out who done it and with that weapon had us all sweating.
We get it, nothing quite beats that winning feeling, but Martin got a little too carried away, frantically searching through the evidence in front of him, with suspect maps, evidence polaroids and all sorts.
The best bit? When he comes storming back into the living room and automatically begins his whodunnit speech by switching back into DS Steve Arnott.
Ditching his Scottish twang for his character’s London accent, Martin starts: ‘Police interview by DS…,’ before realising where he is and shouting: ‘I’m done playing games. I can spot a liar a mile away and you are lying.’
‘You’re taking this way too seriously,’ his pal tells him, with Martin joking: ‘Sorry, it’s detective mode, I just get carried away, you know.’
Remind us not to sign up for a game of Cluedo while he’s around, yeah.
Alongside his video post, Martin teased: ‘Whodunit? With what weapon? And in which room? My toughest case yet? Or am I lying?? Sometimes you have to lie to get to the truth!’
It comes as BBC finally confirmed when series six of hit series Line Of Duty will return to screen.
Fans won’t have long to wait as the new season is set to drop in March 2021, with Adrian Dunbar (who plays Ted Hastings) and Vicky McClure (Kate Fleming) joining Martin to reunite us all with AC-12.
Season six is also set to star newcomers Shalom Brune-Franklin, Perry Fitzpatrick, Andi Osho and Prasanna Puwanarajah.
Filming for the next instalment of Jed Mercurio’s crime drama got the green light to resume in September after being delayed due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Production had started earlier this year, but came to a halt just four weeks in when Covid-19 first hit.
Showrunner Mercurio had addressed the delay at the time and told fans: ‘We know Line of Duty fans are desperate for series 6 and we hope we can get it on air as soon as possible. Thanks so much for your patience in these difficult times.’
Line Of Duty is available to stream on BBC iPlayer and Netflix.
