During an interview with the British morning show This Morning, John Barrowman said that talks to return his iconic character of Captain Jack Harkness to Doctor Who for the show’s 50th anniversary had just commenced (see the video below).
He later backtracked on twitter, saying ‘Re 50th I didn’t say in what capacity or what medium so stay calm and carry on.’
Was he just being coy so as not to violate a non-disclosure agreement, or is Jack’s big return going to be in the form of another radio play?
Rumors about the fiftieth are plentiful; the most common being that the special will include appearances by ALL the Doctors, even the dead ones. But when a rumor comes from one of the stars, and it comes with confirmation that an actual deal is in the works, you have to take it seriously.
