Barrowman and Pullman

It’s funny, but you don’t actually believe certain things until you see them with your own eyes. Timothy Dalton as Lord President Rassilon (James Bond is in Doctor Who!), young Matt Smith replacing David Tennant as the Doctor (How?! How?! Oh…he’s actually brilliant!), The Mutants getting a DVD release before any other Third Doctor story still in line (ok then…)

To add to the list of strange “believe it to see it” things is a picture that’s recently surfaced of John Barrowman and Hollywood star Bill Pullman, in costume and posing and smiling for the camera, as they film Torchwood: Miracle Day, which you can find at www.billpullman.org.

Now, Doctor Who has had some absolutely amazing guest stars during its forty eight year run and the show continues to attract a vast quantity of wonderful guest stars but the credit extends to its spin off show Torchwood, as the show is able to get Hollywood’s casting list to star in it.

For those of you unfamiliar with his work, Bill Pullman has starred in films such as Casper, Independence Day, Wyatt Earp, Lost Highway and The Grudge.

In the newest series of Torchwood, Pullman plays a shady character called Oswald Danes who is described as a “former school teacher and convicted child killer”. In other words, a clever and very nasty piece of work for the Torchwood team to take care of!

The new series is shaping up to be the best yet and quite frankly, can’t come quick enough…

Torchwood: Miracle Day will be air this year on BBC One in the UK and the Starz channel in the US.

What happens when an eight year old kid watches the 1993 repeat run of Planet of the Daleks? He pretty much ends up here writing about the show that grabbed hold of him and never let go!
