A recent clip for the upcoming Doctor Who Holiday special confirmed that John Barrowman’s Captain Jack is returning to the series. This Doctor Who special will be called Revolution of the Daleks.
It was revealed by BBC that Barrowman will be returning as Captain Jack, who did appear in Doctor Who Season 12. However, he was only in one episode.
Captain Jack’s return in the upcoming Doctor Who holiday special was revealed in a 15-second video which opened on a black screen, with the wheezing, groaning noise of the TARDIS.
The picture then appears, showing an excited Jack. He then says: “Ohh I’ve missed that sound.” We’ve really missed him too. Captain Jack is just a brilliant Doctor Who character, and John Barrowman plays him perfectly.

Barrowman’s return was then further confirmed via a press release on the official Doctor Who website, which also gave us a bit more information about the upcoming special. Here’s what Barrowman had to say about his return in the press release:
Putting on Jack’s coat and setting foot back on the set of Doctor Who was just like going back home. It’s always thrilling to play Captain Jack. He’s a character very close to my heart who changed my life, and to know the fans love him as much as I do makes his return even sweeter. I hope everyone enjoys Jack’s Heroic adventure with Thirteen.
