Compston, Who plays DI Steve Arnott, was awarded in May for recognizing his record rating after the end of Series Six with 12.8 million viewers.
This is the first time that a show has been honored instead of an individual.
The Grenadine-born actor wrote on Twitter today: “Great evening, as you can imagine it’s absolutely resonant to be at work.
“Thanks to the official NTA and everyone who voted for us, is the team in line-of-duty?”
Accepting the award, Compston said it meant “too much” for him and the team.
“It means a lot,” he said.
“We started as a show on BBC2 on Wednesday night and now we are the biggest drama on TV and it all depends on the audience.
“We don’t really value it and who knows we might come back …”
The blockbuster drama also won the returning drama Gong, beating BBC1’s Call The Midwife, Netflix’s The Crown and ITV’s unforgettable contest.
Adrian Dunbar, who played Super Ted Hastings, added: “I’m on the moon.
