John Barrowman in the Radio Times

On sale tomorrow, the Radio Times features we have an interview with John Barrowman, talking about three new Torchwood radio dramas for Radio 4.

The Torchwood radio dramas are:

*  The Dead Line by Phil Ford – a series of mysterious phone calls lead Captain Jack into danger.
* The Golden Age by James Goss, set in India.
* Asylum is penned by Anita Sullivan and sees Torchwood investigate the story of a teenage runaway.

It has been long-expected that the dramas would air before Children of Earth – so expect them next week.

“I’m in two minds about radio plays,” says Barrowman. “I can listen to the Torchwood radio plays, but I have a hard time listening to other radio dramas. That’s why, when they asked me to do them, I was a bit like, Hmmm. But the success of Lost Souls was amazing and it opened my eyes to this media that’s always been out there, but which Torchwood hadn’t really tapped into.”

“I’ve just finished my concert tour and one thing I said every night on stage, when I would talk about being Captain Jack, was, ‘I will never tire of hearing a kid in a supermarket saying, “I love you, Captain Jack”.’ I will never tire of that.”

Meanwhile, look out for changes to the Radio Times Torchwood minisite over the coming weeks.
