It’s time to follow Captain Jack Harkness and his vortex manipulator on three exciting new full-cast audio adventures, with River Song and Jackie Tyler
There’s no denying that the leader of Cardiff’s Torchwood Three has enjoyed a long and varied life. We’ve had glimpses of what he gets up to, learned his real name, seen him encounter the Sixth Doctor, Jackie Tyler and Trinity Wells, and work his way through various decades.
Now we’re back with the good ol’ captain for a third volume of adventures, starring John Barrowman, Camille Coduri and Alex Kingston.
The Lives of Captain Jack volume three is available to buy now from £19.99, exclusively from the Big Finish website.
Producer James Goss said: “The listeners love Jack and Jackie Tyler as much as we do. They barely had a scene together on screen and yet John Barrowman and Camille Coduri in studio is beyond comedy gold. They’re like the Sapphire & Steel remake we’ve been cruelly denied.”
Director Scott Handcock added: “It goes without saying that it was a privilege to work with Alex Kingston on this set. Like John, she’s such a versatile actor, so getting to throw all manner of scenarios at her alongside Captain Jack, was an absolute blast!”
“And, of course, the main joy stems from the fact that John Barrowman plays him. It’s always a pleasure to work with John – he’s such fun and has bags of energy – and is also an incredible actor. The great thing about this series is we’re able to showcase all his abilities.”
The Lives of Captain Jack volume three features the following rollicking good adventures:
Crush by Guy Adams – Captain Jack takes Mrs Tyler on a luxury cruise in space.
Mighty & Despair by Tim Foley – On a distant planet in the far future, two travellers have come looking for a mythical hero.
R&J by James Goss – From ancient battles to eternal wars. A pair of time-cross’d lovers take the stars
