barrowman 210x300Torchwood and Doctor Who star, John Barrowman, has announced that he would like it if Who guest star Russel Tovey would join Torchwood permanently.

Tovey, star of BBC3’s Being Human, recently appeared in the final part of Doctor Who which aired on New Year’s Day. Reprising his small role as Midshipman Alonso Frame, Tovey briefly became the object of affection for Captain Jack Harkness.

Chatting to Doctor Who magazine Barrowman said, “What I’d love, what I think would be great, is if Midshipman Frame became Jack’s companion in Torchwood. He’s the perfect companion for Jack.”

Though the last time we saw the good Captain he was mourning the loss of his boyfriend, Ianto Jones, so no one’s quite sure how fans will react to a rebound boyfriend being on the show.

Also, in the last episode of Torchwood we saw Jack leaving Earth for new adventures so will he return with Alonso in tow? We hope so.
