Torchwood character Captain Jack Harkness will pop up in series finale

TAGS:

John Barrowman is set to return to Doctor Who for the show’s new series.

The good-looking actor, 40 – whose character Captain Jack Harkness features in spin-off show Torchwood – will make a special appearance for the season finale.

Captain Jack comes to the rescue when the Time Lord, played by David Tennant, 36, is injured in an explosion.

But John is staying tight-lipped about the details.

‘Let’s just say there is always the possibility that when the Doctor needs help to fight off someone or something, he calls on Jack,’ he tells the Daily Star.

‘He is the muscle and guns man. I can’t say too much – wait and see.’
