Jack the grifter. The rascal, the rogue. The charmer.” And finds a new home with the Doctor and Rose, traveling in the TARDIS.Until the good old days catch up again: Zloy Volk is alive; Jack didn’t kill him. Now he’s on a new mission. But will he make it out alive?Captain Jack Harkness was last seen on Doctor Who in “The End of Time”; the Tenth Doctor introduces him to Alonso Frame (Russell Tovey) during his final farewells before regenerating.Barrowman, as Harkness, went on to lead spin-off Torchwood for five years.
