Acursian cover

JB and CB Comics: Acursian

Legendary Comics are teaming up with John, his sister and co-author Carole, and graphic novelist and writer Erika Lewis to create Acursian (formerly Cursed), a new comic book series that pits Celtic lore against a modern day anti-hero.

Speaking at Legendary's panel at Awesome Con in Washington DC, John said: "We've always wanted to write a story that pulls together our love of history, our Scottish heritage, and our love of sci-fi and the supernatural. Mix these all together and Cursed was born."

Update: 16 September: Acursian launched on Friday, 14 September with a special panel featuring John, Carole and Erika Lewis at Keystone Comic Con, Philadelphia.

The video features television star Anna Khaja as a Christian Minister who attempts to save the souls of her LGBT congregation members portrayed by real-life couples and families including John and Scott. The unscripted dialogue between Khaja's Minister and the families throughout the video create a riveting debate over the heart of the Bible's messaging.

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!
