John Barrowman would love a Torchwood film

John Barrowman{jcomments on}John Barrowman has said he’d love to see a big-screen version of Torchwood be made some time in the future.

The actor, who plays Captain Jack Harkness in the sci-fi series, echoed the comments of co-star Eve Myles who said that a film would be the next logical step for the franchise to take. So far three seasons of Torchwood have aired with a fourth, titled Miracle Day, currently airing on BBC One in the UK and Starz in America.

“I’m not going to talk about the future of Torchwood beyond where we are, but if I said I wouldn’t love to have Captain Jack on the big screen, I’d be lying,” – John Barrowman speaking to PA

A big-screen version of Torchwood isn’t an impossibility especially if Miracle Day performs well on both sides of the Atlantic. However, films are notoriously difficult to get off the ground with many stuck in ‘development hell’ for years on end. The BBC has long desired to produce a Doctor Who movie but has so far not managed to do so for various reasons. The last big-screen Doctor Who movie was in 1966 starring Peter Cushing in a remake of the William Hartnell story Daleks Invasion of Earth.

Torchwood Miracle Day continues tonight on Starz and next Thursday on BBC One in the UK.
