Owen Harper in Torchwood
owen was Torchwood Three’s medical doctor. Brilliantly played by Burn Gorman, who has gone on to appear in blockbusters like The Dark Knight
Rises, he was killed off halfway through season two, briefly resurrected as a zombie, and then offed again.
Would any of your character’s skills have been useful in real life?
His obsession with finding out the truth made him, if not a fully-rounded human being, a very good doctor!
What’s the strangest request you’ve had from a fan?
To sign a sex toy, which had possibly been used! Being a quiet and retiring sort I declined.
What would owen be doing now?
I like to think that he mellowed as different parts of his body fell off. It’s no good having a part-zombie in an action team, so he’d be taking it easy.
Is there anything you think was unfinished about owen’s story?
He had a relationship with Tosh, but he treated her badly. I would’ve liked to see that developed slightly.
Did you get any set souvenirs?
The main Hub set was next to the TARDIS, so perhaps something was ripped off the console, but I can’t confirm or deny that!
What would it say on his gravestone?
Here lies Owen Harper – stiff in death as in life!
