Torchwood's Ianto Jones WON'T be coming back—and here's why

Doctor Who show runner Steven Moffat gets asked about the Whoniverse all the time, but there's one particular fan question that comes up again and again: Would he consider resurrecting Torchwood's Ianto Jones, who was killed off in the last Torchwood series, 2009's Children of Earth? His answer? A resounding NO.

Responding to fan questions on Twitter, Moffat put the matter to rest:

"Ianto fans only: Russell's character, and I thought his death scene was brilliant. Not reversing it. Stop asking."

Then the show runner went on to say that:

"Torchwood is Russell's - nothing to do with me."

So if anyone had any hopes left that Moffat would resurrect Ianto Jones, it's over, though maybe Torchwood show runner Russell T Davies will change his mind. But ... should he? Or should Ianto Jones be left to rest once and for all?
