Bowden has given us some idea of what to expect from his interpretation of the character – and hinted that there are definite reasons for his return, saying: There is a reason they are coming back, we’ve come back with a little trouble. I think what’s happened now is all of the kind of trouble and hurt that has been placed upon Ben in the past is taking its toll a lot more, he’s come back with a slightly more broodier sense of self, he’s more aware of who he is, and is quite content with who he is. but still wants to be more.
So I think that everything that has happened to him in the past is kind of affecting his being now. ‘I think he’s certainly darker, he’s potentially looking at Phil as a kind of idolisation so I suppose there are resemblances showing between the two. I don’t know if he aspires to be more like Phil, I think Ben always wants to be the best, he wants to be the top in whatever way. I think he does look at Phil as that top and so I guess there is learning from Phil.’
