Barrowman’s Bean!

Coffee shop workers were left all steamed up after Captain Jack himself, John Barrowman, popped in to a Gretna branch of Costa on Friday.

Torchwood star John BarrowmanThe Doctor Who and Torchwood star along with his partner Scott Gil left staff members frothing with excitement as he picked up his takeaway decaf latte.

Manager Clare Little said Barrowman had tried not to percolate too much interest:

“I was in the back but the girls recognised him straight away,” she said. “My assistant manager Lindsey [Graham] was really excited, she loves him. She went over to speak to him and he was really nice, very pleasant. She told him she’d loved him in Desperate Housewives and he smiled.

“He said he didn’t want a fuss so we didn’t ask for a photo.”

Little puts his appearance at the Gretna branch down to the passing trade from the motorway to Glasgow rather than the original report of a fault with a vortex manipulator.

After grabbing their hot beverages the pair wandered around the outlet village in Gretna.

Everyone has a favourite Doctor and mine - just for his honesty, his fairness and his ability to not notice the Master's awful, awful disguises/anagrams (Sir Gilles Estram!?!) - has to be the Fifth Doctor, Peter Davison. The stories didn’t serve him as well as his acting served those stories.
