Captain Jack Harkness to have new adventures

Captain Jack Harkness is heading back to the Who-niverse in a series of new audio adventures.

The four adventures will see Jack in different times and on different planets doing battle with a variety of strange and horrible enemies.

John Barrowman will be back to voice Captain Jack and he’ll be joined by some familiar faces (or voices) in a couple of the adventures.

Russell Tovey will appear as Alonso Frame, who met Captain Jack at the end of the 2007 Doctor Who Christmas Special (the one on the Titanic).

Camille Coduri will appear in another of the episodes as Jackie Tyler, Rose’s mum.

“I find it really easy to slip into Captain Jack,” says John Barrowman. “There’s a bit of Jack in John and vice versa. What’s great about these stories is that they’re the kind of episode we didn’t have time for on TV – exploring aspects of Jack that you’ve never seen before in a timey-wimey way.

“If you’re a fan of Captain Jack, or Torchwood or Doctor Who, then I say get them.”

The four episodes are:

1. The Year After I Died by Guy Adams
Set in the year 200,101, on an Earth ravaged by the Daleks, Jack struggles to save humanity from its oldest enemy.

2. Wednesdays For Beginners by James Goss
Jack and Jackie Tyler must unite to rescue the Powell Estate from a force whose name Jackie can never say.

3. One Enchanted Evening by James Goss
Captain Jack and Alonso Frame have only just met. But why did the Doctor want them to be together?

4. Month 25 by Guy Adams
He’s the young star of the Time Agency, and his whole life is about to fall apart. But that’s not going to stop him winning.

The new episodes will be released by Big Finish in June 2017.
