Torchwood: James Marsters returning for new adventure

Posted Filed under

Big Finish continues its excellent work with Torchwood, and it’s lured back James Marsters for its next adventure.

He’ll be reprising his role of Captain Jack Harkness’ old flame Captain John in The Death Of Captain Jack, which will be released in March 2018. The audio drama will also feature John Barrowman, Kai Owen, Tom Price, Gareth David-Lloyd, Samuel Barnett and Rowena Cooper. David Llewellyn has written the adventure, and Scott Handcock directs.

Here’s the synopsis, too…

Captain Jack is finally dying, and it’s time for his oldest friend to visit his deathbed. King John has come to tell him a story. The story of the life he should have had.

It’s the story of Alexander the Great, sinking ships, falling empires, robot dinosaurs, and alien invasions. It’s a story of love, royal weddings, murder, mass murder, genocide, and very tight trousers.

It’s the story of the life of Captain John and it’s the story of Torchwood. Be careful what you wish for.
