John still hopeful for Jack’s return
John Barrowman has revealed that he still remains hopeful that Captain Jack will return to Doctor Who one day.
The character was last seen in the series in The End of Time, Part Two and has been off our screens altogether since 2011 when Miracle Day, the fourth series of his popular spin off Torchwood, was aired to mixed reviews. Despite the hiatus, though, he is adamant that the BBC would be “very silly not to bring him back”. “I would be more than happy to go back if they asked me,” he told the Ipswich Star. “But I never have been, and I don’t know if I will be.”
He added: “The popularity of Jack hasn’t decreased. It keeps growing and one person who is keeping him alive is me, because I’m constantly promoting him. One day, he will return.”
The actor will star in a new Torchwood audio series which Big Finish will release this year.
