5 Minutes with Barrowman

John Barrowman took part in quick interview with the Sunday Mirror recently – and the Torchwood star revealed a liking for ex-footballer Jamie Redknapp, that he has no rider when touring, and that he fights Cybermen in his spare time…

For a quickie interview, it’s a good bit of fun – but the best part of this interview is where John reveals that he once told a small boy that Cybermen were in the supermarket.

“I was in Costco recently and this lady said, ‘My son is wondering what Captain Jack is doing in Costco’. I said to him, ‘Don’t tell anyone but I’m in disguise and there’s a Cyberman loose in the store and I’ve been sent on a mission by the Doctor’. He followed me around the entire time I was there. He was so cute.”

Now, I don’t live in Cardiff or London – but isn’t Costco a bit down-market for a TV and West End star?
