Iain has taken over from Kate Oates, who departed to become Corrie’s boss at the start of the year, and he’s not wasted anytime in brainstorming ideas that will leave viewers stunned.
Speaking to STV, he explains: "We’ve got some quite exciting plans for the autumn in terms of doing something a little bit different, a special week of episodes that will be kind of spectacular, but in a way I don’t think we’ve seen in a soap before. I can’t say much more than that.
“We’ve seen a lot of disaster movies; what I’ve got in mind is more akin to a thriller or an action movie.
"We have seen a lot of incredible stunts... I think this time my intention will be to approach it from a slightly different angle no less spectacular.”
Departing producer Kate was praised her work on the soap during her final 12 months, which included October’s flashback episode and the much-praised #SummerFate week.
Kate also pulled off a number of big surprises, keeping Ross Barton’s return ‘from the dead’ top secret until he was seen on screen.
