May 5th, 2015 by Marc 1 Comment


John Barrowman is set to reprise his iconic role as Captain Jack Harkness for a series of Big Finish audio dramas! 

Six dramas in total will be produced, with each one focusing on one particular member of the Torchwood team and the impact of a mysterious event which affects their lives. Russell T Davies, creator of the Doctor Who spin off series, said: “Torchwood has been to the Moon, and America, and the Himalayas, but now I think it’s finally coming home, to the brilliance of Big Finish.” The first story will be titled The Conspiracy, and will revolve around Barrowmans character of Captain Jack, with further adventures set to be released monthly from January next year.


In other Who related news some up close images have been released of the strange metallic creatures which have been spotted during filming of Doctor Who series 9.  Some fans are guessing that it might be an update of the classic series creatures the Krotons but for now nothing is confirmed.  But we LOVE the design of these!

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
