John Barrowman filmed himself re-watching Torchwood and says there should have been “a lot more” of it

The actor took a trip down memory lane and got REALLY excited about it


It’s been a long time since we’ve seen John Barrowman on our TV screens as Captain Jack Harkness and it seems it’s been a long time since John Barrowman has seen him too because he’s been re-watching Torchwood from the very beginning.


Barrowman shared a series of videos of himself re-watching the Doctor Who spin-off on his official Facebook page, revealing that he’s still a Torchwood fanboy.

Just like quite a few of us so.

But Barrowman also took the opportunity to express his thoughts on the show’s relatively short four series run too.

“I’m sorry, I have to say this, but Russell T was just awesome and, I’m going to speak freely here but there should have been more of this”, said Barrowman of the show, which ran for four series from 2006 to 2011.

“I’m sorry I didn’t revisit this sooner” the actor admitted, “but anyway, I’m going to watch it and continue on being nostalgic.”

Could that nostalgia – about necking pints with Eve Myles and traipsing around Cardiff with the team – spill over into a Torchwood reunion? Only space and time will tell.
