Wafting in on a cloud of campery John Horatio Barrowman has been entertaining the good souls of Glasgow with his own brand of light entertainment.

Barrowman promoting his eponymous album which peaked at number 11 in the charts in March treated native fans (he was born in Scotland before his family emigrated to the USA when he was nine) gathered at the Clyde Auditorium to the Spider-Man theme done show-tune style, “Copacabana” acted out by dancers and a reworking of “The Wizard and I” titled “The Doctor and I” (see what he did there?) alluding to Barrowman’s second job as (Group) Captain Jack Harkness in Torchwood.

If that wasn’t enough of a tour through the Barrowmaniverse Ma and Pa Torchwood were also on hand to slow dance to “Remember Whenand share in a various pieces of banter with their Wee little bairn.

Reviewing the gig, The Scotsman’s Malcolm Jack (whose name couldn’t be more Scottish if he called himself Kilty McHaggis) commented, rather surly,  that Mr Saturday Nights show was:

“So feathery a toddler’s sneeze could blow it away.”

Before adding that:

“It’d be churlish to say this wasn’t honest, value-for-money good fun.”

High praise indeed…

Barrowman’s tour ends this week at the Edinburgh Playhouse.
