'Torchwood' star John Barrowman says the new series of the time-travelling show is raunchier than ever
John Barrowman promises the new series of 'Torchwood' will be sexier than ever.
The 44-year-old gay actor reprises his role as Captain Jack Harkness in 'Torchwood: Miracle Day' a new 10-part series of the 'Doctor Who' spin-off and says the latest episodes were "really fun", even though he had to film nude scenes.
He said: "I'm naked in one episode - I am full-on naked. I am bumping and grinding in this one. I am having man sex. The true die-hard fans know Jack is omnisexual - he likes men and women.
"People who tune into this series will just think Jack is gay, because he just has full-on man sex. It was really fun. One day, I get to shoot a helicopter and save the world, and a couple of days later, I get to have sex with a 24 year old. It's the most perfect job in the world."
As well as the usual filming location of Wales, much of 'Torchwood' was shot on location in America and creator Russell T. Davies says it gave them opportunities to have a "bit of swagger".
He said: "There is a fair bit of swagger in 'Miracle Day'. We go to Dallas, Los Angeles, Washington as well as Wales. Of course, being in America meant more money, more production value, bigger explosions, but it was also very important to recognise Wales. If we had just shot it out there it would not have been believable.
"It is a Welsh show with Welsh characters, that is very important and is part of the reason why it works. The story starts in Wales, the middle is in America and it ends in Wales."
