Burn Gor­man

Owen Harper in Torch­wood

SFX: The Sci-Fi and Fantasy Magazine - - Red Alert -

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!
