Chatting to Den of Geek, Iain gave some disappointing news about the future of his character, explaining: "We had really loyal and supportive and brilliant fans of the show, so I wouldn’t want to disappoint them and say no, but at the same time I think it’s nice that they had their ending and I think it’s nice to leave them."
