Martin Compston sent an emotional message to fans on Twitter on Monday thanking them for their support and addressing the series six finale backlash.
He also said along with other main cast members Adrian Dunbar and Vicky McClure, he and creator Jed Mercurio had made a pact.
The Scottish actor who played DS Steve Arnott revealed: “Finally myself, Vicky, Adrian and Jed made an agreement in the inconceivable and ridiculous scenario we ever got twelve million viewers we would get ‘AC12million’ tattoos. We’ll see who’s good to their word…”
Well, it seems as though Vicky, who plays DS Kate Fleming is to follow through with the promise.
The actress quote tweeted her co-star’s message and said: “We are so grateful to you all. So much so looks like I’ll have the ink to prove it!”
She finished the post off with a love heart emoji followed by a shocked face.
And it’s left fans pondering as to where she will be getting the tattoo.
Elsewhere, Adrian Dunbar isn’t on the social media platform, but Jed has retweeted both of his star’s posts but has yet refused to confirm or deny whether he will be getting inked too.
While the series may have went off with a bang in viewing figure terms, fans took to social media to slam the ending as “disappointing” and “underwhelming”.
A whopping 12.8 million people tuned in to discover the identity of H, but many were unimpressed by the discovery.
With DCI Ian Buckells unveiled as H, the “blundering fool” was not the criminal mastermind many had hoped, and he was also not an obvious character primed to be revealed as H.
One fan took to Twitter to in dismay and wrote: “Well, @Line_of_duty After having watched what was meant to be a fantastic riveting finale to #LineofDutyFinale #LineofDuty, I’m so glad that I hadn’t watched it over the past ten years – such a dull and boring episode. What WAS all the fuss about?!”
However, not all fans were so downbeat. Some fans thought the ending was very apt for real life, while others said the show was “allowed a meh” episode after 10 years.
