John Barrowman ‘upset’ about Doctor Who 50th anniversary

Color me uberfan and not pleased at the Jack-less-ness. Moffat can make it up to me later by including a story in which Jack fits and flirts prominently with Eleven.


John Barrowman has revealed that he wasn’t asked to take part in the 50th anniversary celebrations for Doctor Who.

The actor, who played Jack Harkness in Doctor Who and its Torchwood spinoff, admitted that he was upset about not taking part.

‘Everyone on Twitter tries to make it like it’s my decision, but the bottom line is I was not asked,’ he told TV Line.
