John Barrowman is in talks to reprise the role of Captain Jack Harkness in the 'Doctor Who' 50th anniversary

John Barrowman is in talks to appear in the 'Doctor Who' 50th anniversary.

The 45-year-old star portrayed Captain Jack Harkness in a recurring role in the show from 2005 and in spin-off show 'Torchwood' and has admitted he could reprise the character yet again for the forthcoming special episode.

He admitted on 'This Morning': "I haven't had any information up until just about right now - and all I can say to you is that we're discussing things... that's a total exclusive! You guys are the first to ever hear it.

"Even yesterday I was giving interviews and I was saying I have heard nothing, and now I can give you a little bit of an exclusive. I've heard something!"

Meanwhile, Arthur Darvill - who departed his 'Doctor Who' role of Rory Williams last year - has admitted he would be open to appearing in the anniversary episode if he was asked by showrunner Steven Moffat.

He told Digital Spy: "I'm so busy at the moment that I don't know if I'd be able to.

"But I'm very loyal to Doctor Who - I saw Steven Moffat recently and I think he's brilliant. He's one of those people that if he ever asked me to do anything, I'd do it."
