Jack’s again! (Image: BBC)
Captain Jack Harkness has been an absolute staple of Doctor Who ever since he roared onto our screens in 2005.
From flirting with just about everybody in sight, together with Christopher Eccleston, David Tennant and Jodie Whittaker’s Docs, to saving the day with a aspect serving of sass, Jack’s had fairly the journey.
That’s not even to say his adventures within the wildly standard spin-off, Torchwood.
Mainly, Jack’s an all-round legend, so in celebration of our favorite immortal bisexual, we’re toasting to a few of his biggest hits.
Jack first appeared in collection one’s The Empty Baby, and was first seen spying on Rose Tyler (Billie Piper) as she clung onto a rope for pricey life as she watched wartime London being bombed.
He had a suitably flirty first line (‘Glorious backside!’) and proceeded to catch Rose mid-air as she fell to the bottom.
Little did everyone knows that it will start the long-standing custom of Jack strutting in to avoid wasting the day.
Jack says goodbye
Because it seems, Captain Jack is simply nearly as good at goodbyes as he’s at dramatic entrances.
His candy farewell to the Ninth Physician (Christopher Eccleston) and Rose has been long-remembered as a matter-of-fact reference to his sexuality, as he kisses them each to say goodbye.
John’s means to concurrently make us chortle and sob completely made the scene, as Jack instructed 9: ‘I want I’d by no means met you, Physician. I used to be significantly better off as a coward,’ earlier than jogging out of the TARDIS and declaring: ‘See ya in hell!’
The race to the TARDIS
Weirdly sufficient, Jack’s subsequent look was just about in hell – nicely, the tip of the world.
We subsequent met Jack in collection three, when he actually adopted Ten (David Tennant) and Martha (Freema Agyeman) throughout time by clinging onto the TARDIS because it traveled via the Time Vortex.
Ten had a shady first response to Jack, intending to go away him behind as he raced in direction of the TARDIS, however clearly the time agent wasn’t about to surrender that simply.
Physician Who/Torchwood crossover
We don’t suppose an excessive amount of concerning the finish of collection 4 if we can assist it, as a result of it merely HURTS TOO MUCH.
However, there may be one second that felt like Christmas for Whovians – when Torchwood and Physician Who had a crossover.
Martha, Rose, Sarah Jane Smith (Elisabeth Sladen), and Harriet Jones (Penelope Wilton), all hopped on a convention name with Torchwood’s Jack, Gwen Cooper (Eve Myles) and Ianto Jones (Gareth David-Lloyd) on the Subwave Community (a glorified model of Zoom) to contact the Physician.
There was shade thrown between Rose and Martha, Jack flirting with Sarah Jane, Ianto taking management of the decision – principally, it was superb.
Sequence 12 return
We have been a little bit spoilt with John’s appearances in collection one to 4, however collection 5 to 11 proved a no-go for Jack followers.
In fact, John was off showing in Torchwood from 2006 to 2011, so we will’t blame him for having a busy schedule!
Nevertheless, Who followers have been delighted when the star made a shock return in series 12, for Fugitive of the Judoon.
We gained’t have to attend too lengthy to see Jack once more for the New Yr particular and right here’s hoping he’ll be across the save the day for years to return.
In spite of everything, John has insisted that he’s joyful to get again into his well-known coat ‘on the drop of a hat’ – so we’re going to carry him to that.
Revolution of the Daleks airs on New Yr’s Day at 6:45pm.
