Julie Gardner and John Barrowman Awarded MBEs

As we reported over the weekend, one of Doctor Who’s former executive producers, Julie Gardner and John Barrowman (Captain Jack in Doctor Who and Torchwood) have both been awarded MBEs in the 2014 Queen’s Birthday Honours List.
Julie said she was honoured by the award and commented, ‘I have filmed all over the world. But the talent, stamina and sheer fun of the writers, cast and crews I’ve worked with in Wales is beyond compare. I am lucky; I get to keep this award. But I am accepting it for all those brilliant people who have made my job such an absolute joy, and for my dad who will be the talk of Glynneath. My proudest achievement has been to successfully bring Doctor Who to Wales. From there, through Torchwood, Casualty and Da Vinci’s Demons, Wales’ position in the global television industry goes from strength to strength. I am hugely proud to have been a part of that journey and will work hard so that this is just the beginning.’
John said, ‘I can’t tell you how honoured I am to get this MBE, to be recognised by Her Majesty and also by the United Kingdom because that’s where I can consider my home.’ He added, ‘I am chuffed… Thank you very much, everybody! And to the fans: this is also for you guys. It’s amazing! Thank you!’ [x]

The Nerdist did an interview this morning with John Barrowman, our very own Captain Jack Harkness, and here’s what he had to say about Peter Capaldi as the Twelfth Doctor: 

I think it’s very interesting, the way they’ve gone from Christopher to David and then Matt Smith — who was much younger — and now they’ve gone back to an older, Tom Baker-ish age Doctor, which I grew up with and so I think it’s interesting. I think it’ll be really good! He’s a fan of Doctor Who, and when you get people who are fans playing the roles it works. There’s no doubt that it works, so I have no fear that he’s going to be great.

Because he can.

Woah. Woah. Woah.

BACK
UP
… adult big wheels are a thing?!

wait 

wait

like

on the one hand, it’s important not to participate too totally in romantic idealizations of childhood, besides which you can’t go home again, those days are gone forever etc, besides which the inherent rewards of adulthood are considerable, etc

on the other hand, now when you hear “Picture Me Rollin’” playing way too loud in downtown Durham from a block away you’re gonna have to realize that that’s JD on his adult big wheel and he has brought the party once again
