Little is known about Morgan’s new role, but speculative buzz suggests he may have a past with Paul and be set for romance with Stella.

Morgan himself admitted that his character has some “very close encounters” with Stella but likes to think he is “more special than a one-night stand”.

“[Stella] asks [Tom] to join the team because she sees a value in him,” Anderson told Digital Spy. “Based on his confidence and also his age, he could be of value with how they move forward in the investigation.”


Morgan has also signed on for Channel 4’s upcoming sci-fi series Humans, due out in 2015, while Dornan will be seen as playboy billionaire Christian Grey in Fifty Shades of Grey next February.
