John Barrowman says Chris Chibnall could help revive "Torchwood".

The 51-year-old actor has revealed that the sci-fi spin-off may have hope for a return following talks with the new "Doctor Who" showrunner.

The BBC star - who starred as immortal alien investigator Captain Jack Harkness in the series - told RadioTimes.com: "Without going into too much detail, I actually a while back contacted Chris. He was the "Torchwood" showrunner for a while...

"I actually wrote to Chris and I said to him, "Would he be interested in being a part of something like that?" "

The actor revealed that holding business meetings with different US production companies who passionately wanted to pick up the spin-off encouraged him to contact Chris and make something happen.

He added: "I was doing meetings with different production companies all around the US including the CW, and the one thing out of everyone's mouth was "How would we get a hold of "Torchwood"? To do it?"

"And I thought "That's an interesting question," and a lot of people were asking that. "How can we get a hold of that brand to do it, to start making it again?" "

However, the current "Doctor Who" showrunner - who has the final word on a possible revival - was unable to give an immediate answer due to his current commitments.

John recalled: "He e-mailed me back, and he said "As you probably know, I'm in the middle of something very big at the moment, and I can't discuss anything else."

"But he said "Let's talk when things calm down a bit." And that was just at the beginning of his negotiations for "Doctor Who." "
