A couple of hours ago, John Barrowman posted a teasing video on his Facebook page. The actor says:
“I will be back in Cardiff in about a week and a half. But I’m not telling you what for!”
Coincidentally, production begins on the Doctor Who Christmas special, in Cardiff in just over a week.
As New companion actress Pearl Mackie is still contracted to ‘The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night Time’ until the end of June, it’s very unlikely we’ll meet Bill in the Christmas special.
Peter Capaldi had previously stated:
“I don’t know whether she would be involved in the Christmas special, because it’s so specific, the story we’re doing with the companion.”
Personally, I would love to see Barrowman reprise his role as Jack in the Christmas special. It’s been five long years since we last saw him in Torchwood. Although Barrowman has recently played the character again for Big Finish.
