The ever impressive John Barrowman is back at the Big Finish studios! In colour!
Returning for a second The Lives of Captain Jack series, John Barrowman reprises his role as Captain Jack Harkness for Big Finish and this time he has a familiar face with him…
Tackling a very modern subject that everyone has heard of in the form of fake news, trench warfare and the Sixth Doctor’s fashion in these three stories:
1. Piece of Mind by James Goss
When the Sixth Doctor falls dying into his arms, Jack must carry on in his place. Is the universe ready for a whole new kind of Doctor?
2. What Have I Done? by Guy Adams
On the battlefields of World War I, something is hunting in the trenches. Jack must try and save the life of a wounded soldier.
3. Driving Miss Wells by James Goss
Alien invasions, stolen planets and burning skies – Newsreader Trinity Wells used to tell everyone the world was ending. One day she stopped believing it. Will her new chauffeur change her mind?
The Lives of Captain Jack Volume 2 is out from Big Finish next month
These three highly promising and and exciting stories in The Lives of Captain Jack Volume Two will be released in June of this year and is already available for pre-order on the official Big Finish website on CD for £22.99 or £19.99 on download. However these prices will be £29.99 for CD and £24.99 on its release day. You can pre-order now directly from the Big Finish site. Although sharing a star, The Lives of Captain Jack range is distinct from Big Finish’s groundbreaking Torchwood series in reflecting Jack as he appeared in Doctor Who, and with content more aligned to Doctor Who’s family audience.
Speaking about the box set, The Lives of Captain Jack and Torchwood producer, James Goss, said “As we had such a great time doing the first volume it seemed a lovely idea to do another. Amazingly, John managed to find time for us AND capture a nation’s heart in the jungle. Hearing him face off against Colin Baker’s Doctor is the joy we’ve all been waiting for.”
Captain Jack’s meet up with the Sixth Doctor was teased back in March when Barrowman instagrammed a photo of himself in Baker’s iconic coat. But few would have dreamed what it really meant.
What can we expect from this box set? Only time will tell but one thing is for certain: the chemistry between Captain Jack and the Sixth Doctor will definitely be one to get excited about.
