Former Doctor Who companion and Torchwood star John Barrowman has described his pleasure at being cast in the US hit drama Desperate Housewives.
Cast as series villain Patrick Logan (with what he calls “Bad Guy, Black Hair”), Barrowman explained to The Mirror:
“As a kid I went down that way for the Universal Studios tour not knowing that as an adult man I would actually be filming with some of the biggest TV stars in America, and also not knowing that I would be on Desperate Housewives which is ranked as one of the top three shows in the history of television around the world. So that was kind of a humbling moment when I walked down that street for the first time to film. It was good.”
While there may not be any positive moves with regard to a future series of Torchwood (if rumours are to be believed) it is good to see that Barrowman is finally getting the recognition he reserves in the USA, if not an outing for Jack Harkness.
Desperate Housewives airs in the UK on Wednesdays at 10pm on Channel 4 and in the USA on Sundays at 9/8c on ABC.
