Torchwood Creator to Fans: No Ianto

Sorry Ianto fans. He won't be coming back to Torchwood.

Here's the scoop
Doctor Who showrunner Steven Moffat has confirmed that he has no plans to resurrect Torchwood

The character, played by Gareth David-Lloyd, was killed off in the fourth episode of TorchwoodChildren of Earth.

Moffat wrote on Twitter: "Ianto fans only: Russell [T. Davies]'s character, and I thought his death scene was brilliant. Not reversing it. Stop asking. [sic]"

In response to a further fan question, the writer added: "Torchwood is Russell's - nothing to do with me."

"Keep him dead." Ooooooo You know how many Fanyboys you just hurt? I agree, dead. That will free up Jack to date me.

I'm one of the aforementioned Fanboys, and yes, thanks for the barb in my already broken heart. Ianto was my favorite and I was literally bawling when he died.

But, I do agree, no resurrections, keep the story fresh and going.
