Captain Jack may have lost the majority of his crew but Starz is bringing on one heck of a replacement team - of writers, that is. Russell T. Davies and Starz previously announced that Series 4 will tell one international story spanning over ten episodes, as opposed to free-standing weekly installments. Now, The Chicago Tribune is reporting the addition of several excellent writers to his team: John Shiban (Breaking Bad, X-Files, Supernatural), Doris Egan (House, Tru Calling, Numb3rs) Jane Espenson (Battlestar Galactica, Warehouse 13, Buffy the Vampire Slayer) and John Fay (Torchwood).
And speaking of Buffy, James Marsters is anxious to return as Harkness’ former lover and fellow time traveler, Captain John Hart. Speaking about Davies, Marsters says, “If he doesn’t call me, then I am going to find him. I will tickle him until he bleeds.”
I think I’ll keep something like that in mind if Series 4 is less than fraktastic.
