John Barrowman talks to Entertainment Wise

Online entertainment news website Entertainment Wise has conducted an exclusive interview with everyone’s favourite omnisexual, immortal Time-Agent-playing actor and singer John Barrowman about what he’s currently up to tour and singing-wise as well as touching on a possible fifth series of Torchwood

Q: And looking ahead to future series’ is there anything in particular that you’d like to see Jack do? Any adventures you’d like to see him get taken on?
“I don’t know if I’m making an assumption because we don’t know if there is going to be another series yet, so were still waiting to see. But I’m happy with what the writers write. I like the aspect of that particular job - I’m not a producer, I’m not a writer, I come in and I get the scripts and I do the job, and I bring the character to life and that kind of brings a bit of the pressure off! But I think I’d love to see Jack time travel a little more, and I love going back in time to Jack’s past. I think that’s also nice to explore.”

Q: Jack’s a great character, what do you like most about playing him?
“The fact that he’s a hero and he’s a different kind of hero. He’s not a typical type of hero that you would see in a comic book or in a TV show, and that’s what I love about him. That’s what makes him fun to play. Also he’s a little bit naughty and he speaks his mind, and he’s got conviction with everything he does.”

Miranda Hart in Doctor Who?

Cultbox have reported how successful and popular British writer and comedienne Miranda Hart hinted at the recent event Miranda: A Masterclass, at the Media Guardian Edinburgh International Television Festival, that a role in Doctor Who is on the cards.

At the event, Miranda: A Masterclass, host Mariella Frostrup brought up Hart's "aspirations" to star in the BBC sci-fi drama. This seemed to throw the sitcom star somewhat as she audibly stuttered a few times before admitting, "Yeah, I think everyone wants to be in Doctor Who."

Frost retorted with, "But you particularly did, no?" to which Hart became slightly fidgety, stuttering again, "No, no, that's not true." Tellingly, and somewhat evasively, she added after a pregnant pause, "Let's move on," to which the audience erupted in knowing laughter. Sealing the lid on the topic, she added, "Doctor Who would be great."

BBC's Head of Comedy, Mark Freeland, had already drawn allusions with former Who star Catherine Tate (companion Donna Noble) stating that, "... comedy lost someone too soon with Catherine Tate." But it appears that Hart is to explore her acting abilities regardless, having filmed in the upcoming BBC drama,Call The Midwife with Jenny Agutter (Spooks) and Pam Ferris (Little Dorrit).

This is not the first time, or even second, that the award-winning gagster has been connected with Doctor Who. The rumour mill was in overdrive earlier this year when a tabloid newspaper claimed that Steven Moffat had offered her a role only to have BBC Controller Danny Cohen step in, asking her to concentrate on comedy.

So what do you think? Would you want Miranda Hart to star in a Doctor Who story?
