On the red carpet this evening, the Ted Hastings star discussed a potential new series of the much loved BBC drama.
Speaking to Tom Allen, he said: “I don’t know about that, whether we will see another series.
“I’m sure everybody wants one, we certainly want one.
“We’re very tired and I’m getting quite old.”
On why he thinks his character is loved by viewers, he added: “Well, I think it’s because he’s a bit old school, I think people like to believe there is someone like Hastings in charge.
“Somebody who’s got a bit of a moral backbone, it seems to be lacking in a lot of our leaders at the moment.
“Maybe that’s one of the reasons that people respond to him as a character.”
The 2021 Virgin Media British Academy Television awards air on Sunday 6th June at 7pm on BBC One.
