John Barrowman would love to make a return to 'Doctor Who' as Captain Jack Harkness

John Barrowman wants to return to 'Doctor Who'.

The 44-year-old actor first starred in the BBC sci-fi drama in 2005 as Captain Jack Harkness before reprising the role in spin-off show 'Torchwood', and wouldn't hesitate to go back to the programme if he was asked.

He said: "I've always said that if I'm asked to go back to 'Doctor Who', I'll go at the drop of a hat. That's where Captain Jack got his beginnings."

John admitted he has discussed the possibilities of returning to 'Doctor Who' with executive producer Steven Moffat and 'Torchwood' creator Russell T. Davies, but is unsure whether it will go ahead.

He told website Zap2It: "It's in the cards, but who knows whether it will happen?"

During his last stint on the show, the Doctor was played by David Tennant and while John is a fan of current Timelord Matt Smith, he still feels "attached" to his predecessor.

He said: "I like Matt Smith and he brings his own quirkiness to it. When a new Doctor starts, everybody goes along for the journey because they love the show. But then you attach yourself to that Doctor.

"There's a whole new generation who are now attached to Matt, and rightly so but David Tennant is my Doctor."
