Doctor Who Magazine 437

You probably know already that Doctor Who Magazine 437 is out in the shops now – but if not, there’s still plenty of time to pickup your copy!

The stars of TORCHWOOD talk exclusively about the new series, MIRACLE DAY, in DOCTOR WHO MAGAZINE 437!

TORCHWOOD, the smash-hit spin-off from Doctor Who, is back for a spectacular new 10-part series. Doctor Who Magazine 437 goes behind the scenes to talk to the cast and crew of this extraordinary adventure, including stars JOHN BARROWMAN (Captain Jack), EVE MYLES (Gwen Cooper), MEKHI PHIFER (Rex Matheson), ALEXA HAVINS (Esther Drummond), KAI OWEN (Rhys Williams), LAUREN AMBROSE (Jilly Kitzinger) and head writer and creator RUSSELL T DAVIES.

DWM asked John Barrowman, could Jack ever return to Doctor Who?
“Yes, I want to come back!” says John. “The beautiful thing about Doctor Who is, it’s time travel. Matt’s Doctor could go back before Jack met his Doctor. Or Matt’s Doctor could meet a darker Jack…? That’s fine too. There are ways to do it. When he’s in Doctor Who, Jack is very different to the Jack that’s in Torchwood. Everybody knows my love of Doctor Who, and I would do it at the drop of a hat.”
