If you follow John Barrowman through his social media feeds, you may have seen teaser information about a new character coming to the Torchwood comic series. Now it is time to introduce Sladen.
“We are very excited to bring this new character Sladen to the world of Torchwood,” said the writing duo of John Barrowman and Carole Barrowman. “You all know both Carole and I were great fans of the wonderful Elisabeth Sladen who played Sarah Jane Smith and what a better way to pay homage to her and create a character with her last name. Elisabeth Sladen / Sarah Jane Smith was the mother of our ship on Doctor Who and now Sladen lives in Torchwood.”
When we last saw Captain Jack, Gwen, and the rest of the new Torchwood team, they had just defeated an alien invasion in the Arctic… but missed a mysterious pod, buried under the ice, that held a seemingly familiar face. Now Captain Jack must battle his worst nightmare… or greatest daydream!
Torchwood: The Culling #1 is scheduled to arrive in stores on October 18, 2017.
