We really like John Barrowman here at FTN…

Ever since we first met him as the cocky captain Jack in Doctor Who, we’ve always enjoyed his work.

And, for the record, I had him pegged as Ra’s al Ghul when he first appeared in Arrow. Just saying’. Anyway…

But now Barrowman, reflecting on the appointment of Chris Chibnall as the new showrunner on Doctor Who, has thrown out some hope that maybe – just maybe – we could see him back in the Who-niverse.

The last time Jack appeared in Doctor Who was in 2010’s The End of Time but could we see him back?

“Good luck to Steven [Moffat] and Chris Chibnall,” the actor said, “I love Chris. Chris wrote a lot for Captain Jack, so… who knows!”

But before the ra’s Al Ghul fans kick off, he added: “But I have to say, I’m an Arrow man at the moment. I’m hopefully there to stay.”

What say you all? Would you like to see Jack return? We know that, despite being practically immortal, he eventually becomes the Face of Boe, so it could be easily explained how he looks a bit older…

Just a thought.

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….
