Dr Barrowman on the One Show

Fans of Captain Cheese need not worry, but if you are one of those people baffled by BBC One’s habit of offering viewers a season of John Barrowman once or twice a year – when the talented singer, actor and presenter manages to appear on multiple shows at the same time – it’s time to be careful when you tune in.

The star of Torchwood will be returning to BBC One this Saturday evening with a new series of his “dream-maker” show Tonight’s the Night, followed the week later with the UK premier of the Hollywood-flavoured Torchwood: Miracle Day.

In the meantime, however, you can also avoid catch him on The One Show this evening at 7.30pm on BBC One, where he will be chatting with presenters Matt Baker and Alex Jones (she’s Welsh, apparently).

As if all of that wasn’t enough, and just to make sure we gave you an interesting headline, it seems that Mr Ubiquity Showbiz has just earned an honorary Doctor of Drama degree from the Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama.

“I’m really honoured, I’m really chuffed and I’m glad I’m back up in Scotland and able to celebrate in full highland dress, and celebrate my heritage and get my degree up here.”

Incidentally, John will be appearing in Glasgow this Christmas alongside The Krankies in the panto Robinson Crusoe and the Caribbean Pirates at the SECC.

From Hollywood to The Krankies… you couldn’t make it up!

    Thanks to you Christian I missed it tonight – it was no 7.00pm, NOT 7.30! Fortunately there’s Youtube so I will just have to be patient.


  2. :/ so sorry! I’m quite uncertain how that happened as it was 7pm in my head as I typed it.

    At least with YouTube or iPlayer you can skip through Don’t Get Dom Get Mad and Miriam Margolyes…
