Torchwood: The Lives of Captain Jack

Captain Jack has led an extraordinary set of lives. We all know he travelled with the Doctor, we all know he ran Torchwood - but what else did he get up to? Find out in The Lives of Captain Jack, a set of four full-cast audio adventures from Big Finish, made under licence from BBC Worldwide, and due for release in June 2017. These four adventures, written by Guy Adams and James Goss, see Captain Jack in different times and on different planets, doing battle with a variety of strange and horrible enemies, from Mother Nothing to the Council Of Three.

"What's great about these stories," says John, "is that they're the kind of episode we didn't have time for on TV – exploring aspects of Jack that you've never seen before in a timey-wimey way. If you're a fan of Captain Jack, or Torchwood or Doctor Who, then I say get them."

A request from John

Many of you have given John gifts over the years, and although he appreciates your thoughtfulness, he's running out of space to keep them! Rather than buying him a gift, he would ask you to support one of his chosen charities.

All donations, large or small, will help these wonderful organisations.

A reminder about online chats. They're not John!

Please don't be fooled by fake Facebook and other accounts pretending to be John. If someone in online chats tells you they are John, they are lying to you. John has an official Facebook page, plus Twitter and other social media (see links below). He replies at random to some of the posts from his fans when he's able to, and does occasional Q&As. And check out the new social media platform, Unlocked, which John has just joined!
