The hottest same sex couple on sci-fi is reuniting! John Barrowman and Gareth David-Lloyd are reprising their roles as Captain Jack Harkness and Ianto Jones in the newest ‘Torchwood’ audio drama. Yeah, audio, so we don’t get to watch them make out again. STILL!!!
Both Barrowman and David-Lloyd provided their voices for the previous set of ‘Torchwood’ audio dramas (which take place before Ianto was killed off on the show) but their two characters didn’t interact. Now they will be reuniting. The story, entitled ‘Broken’, written by Joseph Lidster, takes place during the first series of ‘Torchwood’ following the episode ‘Cybergirl’, which fans will recall featured Ianto’s girlfriend Lisa turning into a killer cyborg AND Ianto vowing to kill Jack. Clearly, this was well before they started doin’ it.
Here is the description for the story:
Whenever Ianto Jones has a tough day at work, he has somewhere he can hide. And, for Ianto Jones, it’s always a tough day at work.
His girlfriend is dead, his colleagues don’t trust him, and his boss… his boss is something else. With no friends in the world, and his life in danger every day, is it any wonder that at night, Ianto Jones goes to the pub?
Ianto’s local becomes somewhere where he feels safe. Safe from his demons, safe from his life, safe from Torchwood. Until one evening, Captain Jack Harkness walks into a bar….
Well, I think we all know where this story goes.
Producer James Goss said:
“Joe Lidster came up with the idea. He’d spotted that something interesting happens midway through Series 1 of Torchwood on television, and he really wanted to investigate it. I’m afraid to say I just went, ‘Yes, yes yes. But John and Gareth together? Imagine how happy the fans will be!’
“Both the actors fell on the script, and director Scott Handcock’s got some great performances out of it.”
Yes! Yes! Yes!!!
This audio adventure will be available in July.
Are you excited to see (uh, hear) Jack and Ianto back together… for the first time?
