Barrowman(!) May Return If Torchwood Revived

There are some corners of the universe that have bred the most fabulous things. Things that act against everything serious drama believes in- and they must be caught – on camera, unwittingly being re-enacted by two cast members of the same show, on separate panels to the audience of the Phoenix Comicon early last month. We have a wee comic(on) gem for you! But first a mini-Barrowman update…

The news-munchkins that keep Kasterborous’s cogs shiny found more online evidence that Barrowman, the multi-talented Duracell Bunny of popular culture, would return to Torchwood if the show came back. He was interviewed by Sir Terry Wogan on his BBC2 radio show at the end of last month.

Referring to the four seasons of Torchwood he said, “we had a great run and that was it really. But who knows what the future may hold.” I don’t know about you, Kasterborites but this falls into the Pope-is-a-Catholic news category – we know he loved it and who’d turn down a great job? He says as much when talking about the most important thing being that he enjoys a job and has fun at work. On jobs like hit US crime-fighting series, Arrow. This brings me to the aforementioned comic gem…

Take a look at the clip above from Phoenix Comicon from early June. Barrowman and his co-star, Stephen Amell describe the first meeting of their characters, villainous Merlyn and titular hero Oliver Queen, AKA Arrow. In brief, our John sabotages some terribly serious acting seriousness with what can only be described as a jazz-Arabesque with added sparkle (JASS?).

(Special thanks to Louise Morel for pointing out the stories and giving Kasterborous the time markers to make the edits quick and easy).

If it were down to me, I’m not sure whether I’d bring Torchwood or the good Captain back in a hurry, especially with the anticipated darker tone of series 8. But I admit to being more than curious how Capaldi and Coleman would fair with this loveable rogue on-set. They do say if a cast does their best work when they’re enjoying themselves…

Speaking of which, for those Kasterborites thus inclined, here’s the scene Barrowman and Amell were referring to. It features seriousness, human male toplessness and a hint of Barrowman sparkle. Some corners of the universe have bred the most fabulous things…
