John Barrowman returns to ‘Torchwood’ before ‘Arrow’ season 4

John Barrowman is set to once again return to one of his best-known roles on British television when a new Torchwood audio drama is released later this year, following another successful season on Arrow.

The Scottish-born actor revealed in his radio show that he has already recorded the first audio drama, called The Conspiracy, which will focus on his time-travelling, omnisexual hero Captain Jack Harkness.

“Getting back with Captain Jack is like putting on an old pair of shoes or a very comfortable coat,” Barrowman told director Scott Handcock in the latest Big Finish podcast.

Torchwood is something we’ve wanted to do for ages,” executive producer Nicholas Briggs said.

“It has great characters and there are many stories to be told. Our mission is to bring a whole new series of dramatic adventures to life.”

James Goss, who is producing the Torchwood audio dramas, said: “It’s just so exciting to be starting off the range with a drama starring John Barrowman – he leapt at the chance to display a whole new side to Captain Jack.”
