John Barrowman and Camille Coduri have been reunited in Cardiff this week at the recording session of a secret Doctor Who audio project.

Never one to opt against sharing a tantalising teaser or five, the Captain Jack actor has been keeping his Twitter followers up to date with the intriguing developments as he returned to Doctor Who’s homeland (as promised!) to work on what we can assume is a new Big Finish adventure co-starring Jackie Tyler herself. And there’s also been some exciting news for Torchwood fans, too.

On Wednesday he shared this pic of everybody’s favourite tea boy turned Earth defender Gareth David-Lloyd, so it looks like there’s plenty of Jack and Ianto action to come. Hurrah! Let’s not forget that Big Finish recently had their license extended until 2025, so there are definitely good times ahead. Let us know what you think it all means in the comments!

John Barrowman has sent Whovians into a frenzy (we know, so unlike him!) by revealing that he’ll be returning to Cardiff “in about a week and a half”.

While the actor remained tight-lipped about what’s bringing him back to Doctor Who’s homeland, his cryptic tease in a recent Facebook video has inevitably led fans to speculate that he’ll be reprising his role as Captain Jack Harkness in Series 10, which begins filming this month. His popular character was last seen on screen in 2011 in the fourth series of Torchwood.

So, is Jack back? Only time will tell, of course, and it might just turn out that John’s taking a trip to the Doctor Who Experience. He is certainly being secretive for a reason, though…

Would you like to see Captain Jack Harkness return in Series 10 of Doctor Who?

Please join us as we raise our glasses to wish Freema Agyeman a very happy 37th birthday today.

The actress, of course, played the Tenth Doctor’s unlucky in love companion Martha Jones in Series 3 and 4, with a short but sweet stint in Torchwood in between, before returning alongside her fellow Children of Time to bid David Tennant adieu in The End of Time, Part Two. More recently she’s been seen as Amanita in Netflix’s original Sense8 drama, and she is soon to be reunited with Eve Myles in the upcoming vampire thriller Eat Local.

We hope Freema enjoys her celebrations, and feel free to post your own birthday messages and well wishes for her in the comments. She’s Doctor Martha Jones, who the hell are you?

Freema Agyeman and Eve Myles will be getting their teeth into a new indie vampire thriller, it has been revealed.

“Eat Local” revolves around unwitting Essex boy Sebastian whose night of passion with a ravishing cougar turns into a fight for survival when she introduces him to a coven of hungry vampires. The Martha Jones and Gwen Cooper actresses are joined by other familiar Doctor Who faces – including Ruth Jones (Nikki in Adrift) and Annette Crosbie (Mrs Angelo in The Eleventh Hour) – in the movie, which is currently being filmed in Hertfordshire.

Produced by Evolution Pictures, the project is the directorial debut of actor Jason Flemyng and has been written by BAFTA nominated writer Danny King. Are you looking forward to seeing Freema and Eve in their latest roles? Let us know in the comments section below…

Change is a-comin’ to Doctor Who after the announcement that Chris Chibnall will be taking over the showrunning reigns when Steven Moffat hands over the keys to the TARDIS after Series 10 in 2017.

As with the Moff back when he was revealed as Russell T Davies’ successor, Chibnall is no stranger to the Time Lord’s world, having previously written such classic episodes as 42 and The Power of Three. He also contributed to Torchwood, with acclaimed stories like Countrycide, Fragments and Exit Wounds rounding off his already reputable résumé.

And let’s not forget Broadchurch, Chibnall’s BAFTA award-winning crime drama, featuring Tenth Doctor David Tennant, which will be returning to ITV for its latest series next year…

So, what have been your favourite Doctor Who/Torchwood Chris Chibnall moments so far? He has certainly paid his dues, so let us know your picks of his best bits in the comments section below. One thing is for sure, the future of Doctor Who just got very, very exciting!

Big Finish’s upcoming Torchwood series has just welcomed back two more familiar faces from the show’s televisual past.

It was announced today (Tuesday) that Eve Myles and Kai Owen will both be reprising their respective roles as Gwen Cooper and Rhys Williams to star in a brand new audio adventure, Forgotten Lives, written by Emma Reeves and directed by Scott Handcock. The original story will be set in the present day – four years after the events of the spin off’s last series Miracle Day – when the couple are summoned to the mysterious Bryn Offa Nursing Home.

It’s released in November after the opening story, The Conspiracy with John Barrowman as Captain Jack, later this month. Three further stories will follow at monthly intervals until February 2016, including Fall to Earth which will mark the overdue return of Ianto Jones.

Big Finish has today (16th July) confirmed that Ianto Jones will be returning in one of their new Torchwood adventures.

In May it was announced that the popular spin off – which has been “in limbo” since its fourth series, Miracle Day, was met with mixed reviews in 2011 – would be back in the form of a new range of original audio dramas, launching with The Conspiracy in September 2015.

The second installment, Fall to Earth, will follow in October and will be led by Gareth David-Lloyd.

“Well, how could we not?” said producer James Goss. “Ianto is a brilliant character. If we kept people on tenterhooks any longer, we’d be fools. He’s in it… and as soon as possible!”

Ianto was introduced in Series 1 and became an instant fan favourite, so much so that his shock death in Series 3 inspired his devotees to erect a special commemorative memorial in Cardiff Bay, which is still standing today. Read WhovianNet’s interview with Gareth here.

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.

Torchwood will be returning to the airwaves in the form of a brand new audio series, it has been announced.

Big Finish will be overseeing the new production which will consist of six original adventures exploring the impact that a mysterious event has on the team. As always, the festivities will be led by Captain Jack Harkness, as portrayed by John Barrowman who previously confirmed earlier this year that the audio plays were in development.

Part one, The Conspiracy, will be released in September.

“Torchwood has been to the Moon, and America, and the Himalayas,” Torchwood’s creator and former Doctor Who showrunner Russell T Davies said. “Now, it’s finally coming home.”

Additional cast members are to be finalised. The remaining five instalments will be released monthly from January 2016. Are you glad that Torchwood is finally returning? Let us know!
