Barrowman Sings BBC’s Praises

Torchwood’s John Barrowman praised the BBC’s diversity with a glitzy Proms in the Park performance at Salford.

Barrowman, who was accompanied by the BBC Philharmonic Orchestr a- whom the Salford Council have pledged over £20 million to – was in fine voice as he wowed crowds with a series of showstoppers from Mancini’s Pink Panther to the classic rags to riches tale Mack and Mabel at the event at Buile Hall.

The Tonight’s the Night presenter told Manchester Evening News;

“It’s what the BBC do so well bringing different types of music all across the country.

“It’s great that all this money isn’t concentrated in London and you can have these events in Glasgow, Salford and across the country. And it’s great to have such an amazing reception from the people of Salford.”

Chiming with Barrowmans faith in the BBC the Philharmonic Orchestra played a medley of theme tunes from programes such as Match Of The Day, Grandstand and Postman Pat in honour of their relocation to the BBC’s new and controversial MediaCity: UK complex in Salford.

As is Proms tradition the evening was rounded off with Last Night favourites Rule Britannia, Jerusalem and Pomp and Circumstance before a spectacular fireworks display.

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.
