He wrote: "Absolutely delighted to part of this amazing cast, to be working on something so ambitious on home soil is the dream.

"Let’s be having ye."

The new Amazon Original supernatural thriller is to be filmed exclusively in Scotland.

It follows a group of North Sea oil workers due to return to the mainland when a "mysterious and all-enveloping fog" descends.

Production is due to begin next year, with filming at Edinburgh's new First Stage Studios.

It will be directed by John Strickland - who is also behind Line of Duty and Bodyguard.

Compston will act alongside Mark Bonnar, Emily Hampshire and Owen Teale in the six-part series.
