Who’s Got Barrowman Back?

It’s been quite a while since we’ve heard from the good Captain Jack. Sure, we saw the Tenth Doctor set him up with Midshipman Frame very, very briefly in The End of Time, Part Two but the last time we saw Jack was 2009 in Children of Earth and the last time he was part of a Doctor Who story was 2008 in Journey’s End.

Basically, it’s about time that we saw the new TARDIS crew and Jack get together and save the world in style, which is exactly what John Barrowman is trying to get done at the BBC.

The actor recently revealed that he is trying his hardest to get his beloved character Jack involved in an episode for the shows 50th anniversary in 2013 and all we can think is bring it on, because it wouldn’t quite be the same celebration with Harkness there to flirt with Amy and make Rory feel that little bit intimidated.

Speaking to magazine publication Woman’s Own, Barrowman said:

“I’ve spoken to the team and we all think it’s a good idea…I would love to work with Matt Smith. I think the fans want that.”

Indeed we would and maybe if we’re lucky and we get some other past Doctor’s involved for the show’s 50th, we could get John to do some of his flirting with some of the old regulars.

Imagine Captain Jack meeting the Doctor’s fourth incarnation, now that would be a ratings winner…


What happens when an eight year old kid watches the 1993 repeat run of Planet of the Daleks? He pretty much ends up here writing about the show that grabbed hold of him and never let go!
