During a recent Twitter exchange the actor shot down the rumours.

A couple of weeks ago the rumour mill was triggered when John Barrowman said that he’d be returning to Cardiff for a new project. This had fans speculating that the Barrowman was likely to reprise his role of Captain Jack Harkness on ‘Doctor Who’.

During a recent Twitter exchange the actor shot down the rumours.

“Well if he is its not me playing him….I assure you I have not filmed nor been asked.”

Barrowman last appeared as Captain Jack on screen in Doctor Who spinoffTorchwood in 2011. He’s since appeared in audio plays as the character, and this November will be reuniting with Gareth David-Lloyd and Eve Myles for one called ‘Torchwood: Outbreak.
