"I haven't heard anything," he admitted, when asked about reprising his role as Captain Jack Harkness.

"There was a rumour online that said I'm not able to do it because of my schedule. But, actually, I haven't been asked. So it's nothing to do with my schedule."

Barrowman added that he is keen to film more episodes of both Doctor Who and its spinoff series Torchwood.

"If they come to me and ask me to do Doctor Who or Torchwood ever again, I would do it at the drop of a hat," he said.

The actor and TV personality will next be seen in US drama Arrow, playing a mysterious character known only as the "well-dressed man".
