Captain Jack Harkness – time-travelling con-man, saviour of the Earth, and intergalactic adventurer. He has lived many lives. These are three more of them.
Piece of Mind
When the Sixth Doctor falls dying into his arms, Jack must carry on in his place. Is the universe ready for a whole new kind of Doctor?
“Are you wearing my coat?”
“I’m not just wearing it dude; I’m ROCKIN’ IT, DUDE!”
This is a classic Doctor Who story with a bit of a Jack Harkness twist. And it’s a lot of fun!
The actors seem to be having a lot of fun as well and I always love to hear this earlier Jack who is a bit brasher than later Jack.
And as always, Jack’s relationship with the Doctor is fascinating.
I have to admit, I was dreading this one a bit – I feared it would be too silly and over the top. I have to admit, I was wrong. Sure it is silly and over the top, but so well executed from start to finish, that it’s a lot of fun to listen to. Jack’s attempts to impersonate the doctor work much better than I anticipated at first. I especially love his attempts with the accent. Only when he he gets too over excited, John Barrowman sounds way too much like himself, which is a bit distracting. The story itself is really well done and I’m in awe how James Goss was able to write such a complex story for a 60 minutes audio.
