Doctor Who and Torchwood fans rejoice! Our own Captain Jack Harkness, John Barrowman, has been hired this side of the pond for the CW’s upcoming Arrow series in a recuring role.
The role that Barrowman is playing is somewhat a mystery but according to Entertainment Weekly, he will be portraying an acquaintance of the Queen family.” He will be a well-dressed mysterious wealthy man and is reportedly one of the most prominent figures in Starling City.
I’m a huge fan of Barrowman and am looking forward to seeing much more of him on American television. I’m also assuming this means that Torchwood will not be returning (and let’s face it, the last season – Miracle Day – fell flat on its face in most of fans’ eyes).
