Torchwood: Barrowman, Davies Have Discussed Film Starring Tennant, Piper


Doctor Who/Torchwood alum John Barrowman has revealed that he and former Doctor Who showrunner Russell T. Davies are have discussed a potential big-screen adaptation of Torchwood featuring David Tennant's Tenth Doctor and Billie Piper's Rose Tyler.

In a recent interview with RadioTimes, Barrowman -- who played Captain Jack Harkness -- said, "I can't remember what ceremony it was, but I was speaking to [Davies] -- he'd picked up an award for A Very English Scandal -- and we said: 'Wouldn't it be great if we could do a Torchwood or Doctor Who movie with Jack, David and Billie?'"

He adds to the sentiment, “If I can boast, the three of us, we all call each other ‘The Golden Age,' The three of us made such an impact that people still talk about us to this day, which is great!”

Even with the actor's enthusiasm, however, a potential Torchwood film faces a few problems, including Davies himself. In his own interview with RadioTimes, Davies recently said returning to the Doctor Who franchise would "be like coming back to a job I did 10 years ago, wouldn’t it? Who would do that?"

Despite this roadblock, Barrowman still holds out hope, stating, "That’s why I always talk about Doctor Who and Captain Jack and stuff – some people think I’m being a bit of a d-ck for doing it, but I don’t give a sh-t. There’s a market out there and sometimes I think it’s being missed!"
