John Barrowman - Doctor Who and Torchwood

Barrowman is best known in the UK for his role in the BBC's science fiction drama Doctor Who. When the series was revived in 2005, Barrowman came on board as recurring guest character Captain Jack Harkness, an omnisexual time traveller from the 51st century. His first appearance as Harkness was in the two-part story "The Empty Child"/"The Doctor Dances", going on to appear in the next three episodes, "Boom Town", "Bad Wolf" and "The Parting of the Ways". The character of Captain Jack Harkness became so popular, he was given his own show. Torchwood, a Doctor Who spin-off series featuring a team of alien hunters based in modern day Cardiff, premiered in 2006. Ken Tucker describes Barrowman's role on Torchwood as "dashing" and "celestially promiscuous", and "like Tom Cruise with suspenders, but minus the Scientology." On the show, Captain Jack Harkness "tracks down--and occasionally beds--ETs with the help of his quartet of bedazzled groupies--slash--Experts in Their Fields: One's a doctor, one's a cop, one's a scientist, and one... makes tea piping hot. It's like the Justice League of Extended-Pinkie Nerds." Barrowman continued to guest star in Doctor Who in 2007, appearing in "Utopia", "The Sound of Drums", and "Last of the Time Lords". Barrowman also participated in a Doctor Who special on the BBC's The Weakest Link.[43] In 2008, Barrowman appeared in the two-part 2008 series finale, "The Stolen Earth"/"Journey's End" and reprised the role of Captain Jack Harkness in the "Doctor Who: Tonight's the Night" special.[44] In 2010, Barrowman returned to Doctor Who with a cameo in The End Of Time along with other previous stars. Series 3 of Torchwood was released in July 2009 as a miniseries of five episodes called Children of Earth;[45] Series 4 is scheduled to begin shooting in January 2010.Both Doctor Who and Torchwood became popular in the United States on the BBC America network.
