Our resident Being Human expert Narin Bahar learns some more from Tovey about his tough decision to leave the show
“I’m going to miss Aidan. I didn’t want to do it without Aidan and I wanted to leave on a high. It just felt time.
“I know some people might be pissed off with me that I’ve left, but I want people to love George and understand that I want to go off and explore other things. It’s sad. I’d decided that I was going to go when I finished filming series three, but then it was so successful and I thought, ‘Should I really be leaving?’ But I am. For me three is the magic number. It’s always in my head. I’d done three series and I was ready to go.”
That doesn’t mean, though, that there’s no George in series four. He doesn’t just vanish, with a line from Annie about how he’s off in Bolton now, or whatever. But just how much we’ll see of him is yet to be revealed. Seems he’ll be getting a proper send-off, though.
