John Barrowman Open to a Return to Doctor Who
TV news site Zap2it briefly interviewed John Barrowman on the set of Torchwood: Miracle Day and revealed that Captain Jack Harkness could always return to Doctor Who.
"I've always said that if I'm asked to go back to 'Doctor Who,' I'll go at the drop of a hat. That's where Captain Jack got his beginnings. And it's already been discussed."
Barrowman says that both "Torchwood" creator Russell T Davies and current "Doctor Who" showrunner Steven Moffat have talked about the possibility of a return for Jack . . .
"It's in the cards, but who knows whether it will happen?" says Barrowman, quick to add that his character does have special ties to David Tennant's version of the Doctor. "I like Matt Smith. He brings his own quirkiness to it... When a new Doctor starts, everybody goes along for the journey because they love the show. But then you attach yourself to that Doctor. There's a whole new generation who are now attached to Matt, and rightly so.... but David Tennant is my Doctor."
