As John Barrowman is gay I suppose I need to explain making the statement 'I adore John Barrowman'.
Being 'gay' or 'bi' or 'straight' is in your jeans...I beg your pardon...your genes.
I was 'born' straight, John Barrowman was 'born' gay. Such is life.
He is, regardless of anything else, something of a 'consumate entertainer'. I've watched a few other shows of his and he invariably enhances them - 'Such a waste to womanhood' says Caz with a gleam in her eye.....
Being an aficionado of Doctor Who since episode one (the William Hartnell years) back in the late 60's, when as a very young child I hid behind the sofa, I can confidentally say that Captain Jack Harkness aka John Barrowman is the most successful character ever created within the world of Doctor Who other than The Doc himself.
Admittedly Josephine 'Jo' Grant (Katy Manning) was rather consequential to me in my Doctor Who adolescence......that picture with a Dalek kept me erect through several teen years...;-)
OK Dinners...enough Katy Manning already....;-).....there's never enough Katy Manning!!!!....well...at least not from when I was 14 anyroad...;-)
TORCHWOOD, a 'spin-off' from Doctor Who, just keeps getting better and better. 'TORCHWOOD - Miracle Day' is, frankly, the most extraordinary show I've seen - apart from Doctor Who itself.
All of these are now dead apart from Captain Jack Harkness (centre) and the Welsh bird (far left) - Gwen Cooper played by Eve Myles......
If you haven't been watching it then don't....you'll have no idea WTF is going on. Get the Box Set later.
Actually, if you're new to TORCHWOOD then get every box set.
Apart from Captain Jack and the Welsh bird everyone else that worked for TORCHWOOD through Series 1 to 3 is dead.by Series 4...Torchwood : Miracle Day. Showing now on BBC 1 every Friday at 9pm.
TORCHWOOD was initiated by Queen Victoria in an episode of Doctor Who by the way.....just so you know.
One day...many millenia from now, Captain Jack Harkness may well die after becoming The Face Of Bo.
Then again.....I'm a Doctor Who geek so what do I know?
Watch TORCHWOOD - but not now...get the Box Sets.
I think we can safely say we've established I love TORCHWOOD....and John Barrowman - but in a manly way of course.....
Nowt wrong with being a geek over a TV show....
Remember Hill Street Blues?.....oh yes....now that was a show!!!!!....but right now...it's TORCHWOOD
Laters....'And Hey!....Let's be careful out there"
