James Masters returns as Captain John Hart in new Big Finish Torchwood audio adventure

By Christel Dee on Wednesday 19 December 2018

The rambunctious, deadly and ever-so charming Captain John Hart, played by James Masters (Buffy, Angel, Smallville and Runaways) will be back at the helm in a new four-story box set, The Sins of Captain John, from Big Finish Productions.

Captain John Hart made his audio debut in The Death of Captain Jack, released in March 2018. In this story, he killed the entire Torchwood team – including John Barrowman’s supposedly immortal Captain Jack Harkness. He also married Queen Victoria and had no less than three ‘relationships’ with characters from history. Who knows what he’ll get up to in this next box set of adventures!

James Marsters spoke to Big Finish about returning to the role, and the world of Torchwood:

“Doing The Death of Captain Jack was incredible! I have missed doing Torchwood so much. Beyond being proud of playing a part in it, the character itself is a blast to play, and those two episodes just weren’t enough.”

Set for release in January 2020, The Sins of Captain John will see Captain John Hart leading the universe into rack and ruin in four new adventures…

  1. The Restored
  2. Escape from Nebazz
  3. Peach Blossom Heights
  4. Darker Purposes

In these stories we’ll find the villainous anti-hero thriving in Restoration London, exploring gas planets, playing ‘Stepford wife' and kissing (then killing) countless victims… Just a day in the life of a rogue Time Agent!

The Sins of Captain John, out for release in January 2020, is available for pre-order from Big Finish. Visit their website for more information and pricing.
