Barrowman on the Big Screen
The Summer of Barrowman is upon us! Torchwood: Miracle Day has blasting out of the blocks along with peek-a-boo this-is-what-you-relatives-thought-you-wanted-to-off-set-your-recent-tragedy wish fulfilling Tonight’s the Night, and now the high priest of BBC One has made his feelings know about the possibility of a Torchwood movie.
(Hold on, he wants to be in another movie after Shark Attack 3: Megalodon?! – Ed)
Previously Eve Myles (Gwen Cooper) had talked about crunching Torchwood’s season long thrills into a 90 minute shot of adrenaline and now John Barrowman (Captain Jack) has unsurprisingly told PA:
“I’m not going to talk about the future of Torchwood beyond where we are, but if I said I wouldn’t love to have Captain Jack on the big screen, I’d be lying,”
Digital Spy have already begun speculating on the Macguffin of the potential film – citing a possible full on alien invasion – which seem like the exact opposite of everything the show has done and a bit obvious considering the budgetary constraints on the show have always lent any worldwide extra-terrestrial attack a conspiratorial feel- it seems like an idea born out of money rather than need.
So what would you like to see Captain Jack and Gwen (provided they survive Miracle Day) square up to on the big screen?
Torchwood: Miracle Day continues this Thursday at 9 pm on BBC One in the UK and Friday at 10 pm on Starz in the US.
