Entendre Explosion

This may well raise the hackles of some fans, and there’s probably not much time of it ever happening (certainly not in the “current economic environment”), but John Barrowman – naughty as ever – has apparently spoken with actress Alex Kingston about River Song and Captain Jack Harkness meeting up…

We dare not speculate on how this might turn out – but surely the combination would be an explosion of suggestions and entendres that no single TV show could handle?!

Speaking to TheTVAddict.com, Barrowman revealed that he and Kingston have met a couple of times, latterly on the set of Arrow, in which the former Torchwood star plays a key role. It was here that their heinous plan was hatched.

We… started talking about how it would be great if River and Jack… actually, she said River and Jack should have their own TV show.

Then she came on Arrow, again we saw each other in the make-up trailer and just screamed,” he recalled. “We both said, ‘Boy, there’s going to be some fan-gasms out there in a couple of weeks!’ It was brilliant.

What would you say to a River/Jack spinoff? Could Alex Kingston and John Barrowman star in a Time Agent show or should Torchwood be revived with River Song joining the team as a proto Doctor?

    Well, River did have Jack’s ‘squareness gun’ when we first met her in the Library, so it begs the question of how she got it.

  2. Adam says:

    Would there be any real dialog or just innuendo after double entendre after suggestive comment? It would be pretty funny to see because while Jack is a total flirt, River is that plus she wears the pants. She could handle Jack better than anyone in the universe I’d wager.

    Perhaps a bit exhausting for a spin-off series – but a great idea for a future Doctor-lite episode!
