Captain Jack Interview

Actor John Barrowman, hitting our screens tomorrow night as the Doctor and Rose’s new travelling companion Captain Jack Harkness, was a guest on BBC Breakfast News on Friday. Barrowman of course came to prominence co-hosting Saturday morning kids show “Live and Kicking” in the early 1990s and is a celebrated star of stage musicals.

Barrowman appears in a 5 minute interview clip entitled “The Lethal Charm of Captain Jack”, and confirms that he is appearing in the final 5 epsiodes and mentions a “huge cliffhanger” in Episode 13.

Later, switching to a Mike Myers-style Sctos accent, Barrowman said:

“I started watching Doctor Who when we lived over here. My first Doctor was John Pertwee…I continued watching it on PBS in the US and I grew into a huge fan…”

Meanwhile, MSN are running a promotional news item about the success of the new Doctor Who series. A wholly positive article, it paints the new series in a very good light for any American who should stumble upon it before finding out they can’t watch it yet…

Finally, Bad Wolf afficionados – some information has come to light concerning the climax of the series… Whether or not any of it is true remains to be seen, but you can find a quote from a report in the Sun in our forum
