John Barrowman’s Pitch For a Captain Jack/River Song Spinoff


Fans aren’t the only ones who have all sorts of ideas for way the characters from Doctor Who could appear in their own spin-offs. John Barrowman proposed his idea for a spinoff starring Captain Jack and River Song during SDCC. Speaking with theTVaddict he noted:

“I’d like to see the two of them prior to their lives crossing in some time realm where they actually meet up without the Doctors or anything like that and they are rogue heroes. Kind of like what Star Trek did in the very beginning, going around and saving civilisations without trying to get too involved, but they always get involved! They always do the wrong thing but for the right reasons and succeed.”

And given that it’s Captain Jack we’re talking about, Barrowman has ideas for how romance could bloom.

“I think there would be a lot of standing off between the two of them to begin with, because they are two very, very strong characters. Very flirtatious! There would be a lot of innuendo going on. I think they would not do anything with each other for a long time because it would be too predictable. They have to be confined in a spaceship for a little while.”

Of course, this will never be made and we will never get to see it happen in any way possible ever, but it’s nice to dream.
