I’m a lifelong Doctor Who fan. Like Peter Davison/Colin Baker, lifelong fan. So, when John Barrowman’s name came up for this part, they said, “Well, you should call him, Andrew,” which was amazing. I basically laid out the plan that we had for his character, and who he is and how he relates to everybody and what’s going on because we didn’t have a lot written, and I said, “So, I guess I’m asking you to take a leap of faith.”
He said, “It’s funny, seven years ago, Russell T. Davies told me to take a leap of faith with him, and I hear your passion and creativity the way I heard his. So, let’s do it!”
What’s most exciting is that he’s not playing Jack. This is a completely different character. He’s just such a tremendously talented actor, and it’s one of the things we’re most proud of with the show.

Who’s my special guest on BBC America’s The #BritList… The one &only John Barrowman @Team_Barrowman What a lucky girl I am. We’ll be talking all things Doctor Who, hitting your screens in the holidays
Torchwood fans stateside will be pleased to hear that a familiar face will be popping onto their telly screens this fall. Entertainment Weekly reports John Barrowman has nabbed a reoccurring role in the CW’s upcoming action drama Arrow.
The new series is based on DC Comics’ Green Arrow, which centers on billionaire playboy Oliver Green, who, after spending five years shipwrecked on an island, returns home and assumes a secret vigilante identity to make amends and fight the ills of society.
According to Entertainment Weekly, Barrowman will play a “well-dressed man who is as mysterious as he is wealthy … he is an acquaintance of the Queen family and a prominent figure in Starling City.”
How much does Grey’s Anatomy and Private Practice creator Shonda Rhimes love the British sci-fi show Doctor Who? “I feel the two highlights of my past five years are I got to meet (former Who executive producer) Russell Davies and I got to meet the star of (Who spin-off show) Torchwood, John Barrowman, who was in one of our pilots,” reveals the prolific TV showrunner. Indeed, an episode from the most recent season of Grey’s Anatomy featured a Who fan who lost his ear at a fan convention while rushing to get a model TARDIS signed by Davies.
Rhimes talked about her love for the show in last week’s Entertainment Weekly Doctor Who cover story (see above). But she had much, much more to say about the 49-year-old TV institution — whose new season debuts on BBC America later this summer — as you can read below…

The Nerdist and John Barrowman, ladies and gentlemen.
See them all on The Nerdist Tribute to Comic-Con tonight at 9/8c on BBC America
Talking what’s next for the time traveling series and how this year’s Con is treating them.
Just in case you weren’t sure… Doctor Who is cool.
Also: John Barrowman is cool. Also: so is his shirt.
British superheroes are all the rage during this Summer of London, with Christian Bale reprising Bruce Wayne in The Dark Knight Rises and Andrew Garfield taking on Peter Parker in the reboot The Amazing Spider-Man. What are John Barrowman‘s thoughts on Garfield replacing Tobey Maguire in the Spidey series? Certainly, Mr. Barrowman can speak with some authority on this topic, having played a superhero for many years as Captain Jack on Doctor Who and Torchwood.
Holy Mother of God.
I met John Barrowman. This man is wonderful and amazing and oh my god he hit on my cousin! Like seriously. My cousin was taking the picture and he had on a superman shirt, and Jack was like “Who’s superman?” And I went, “That’s my cousin.” And he chuckled a bit and went “Oooo really?” And I went, “That’s his girlfriend.” And he said (in the most disappointed voice) “Oh.”
And then he called me pretty.
Dear lord today was amazing.
Freema and John.
