Barrowman on Jack’s Future, Capaldi Critics
Anyone still holding out hope for Captain Jack to return, don’t hold your (deep) breath.
John Barrowman was asked on Magic radio if there’s any chance for the character to come back in the new series and he replied: “I haven’t been asked. If I had a TARDIS I would jump in, go back in time, change [the producer’s] minds and go forward and play him again.”
Earlier in the week he said: “When somebody comes in and takes over from the team that were there when you were there they tend to cut a lot of stuff and go in their direction. If you’re not in that plan then there’s nothing you can do about it. That’s a BBC decision, it’s not my decision.”
“I would love to do it, but I might never be on Doctor Who or Torchwood again.”
Barrowman shared some thoughts on Capaldi and moved to silence any critics: “I know Peter as an actor because he was on Torchwood: Children of Earth and I think he will be an awesome Doctor. He’s a wonderful actor, he’s also Scottish so it holds in the line of David Tennant, myself and other Scots who have been involved in the Whovian world.
“And for those critics who sit behind their keyboards and say ‘Capaldi’s not going to be good…’ Shut up! Because you’ll watch the show anyway. You go on the journey the Doctor takes you on no matter who is playing him.”
