Life Imitates Art

Actor John Barrowman seems to be taking on something of a Captain Jack Harkness persona by acting like the true action hero that he plays in Torchwood.

Currently playing Robinson Crusoe in a pantomime in Glasgow, Barrowman was recently involved in aprehending a thief at the hotel where he was staying.

In true Captain Jack style, Barrowman chased the young thief after he had raided a couple’s room, making sure that he stayed where he was until the police arrived! The actor recalled the event:

“I grabbed the kid’s ankles, yanked him to the ground and then pulled him out into the hallway. I pinned him down.”

But as its Christmas, we have a nice twist to the tale in true Doctor Who/ Torchwood style: Barrowman, forgiving soul that he is, wants to offer the boy a job at the pantomime to help him out:

“Maybe he could work in the pantomime over Christmas to give him a sense of responsibility.”

Let’s hope it would put him off a life of crime!


What happens when an eight year old kid watches the 1993 repeat run of Planet of the Daleks? He pretty much ends up here writing about the show that grabbed hold of him and never let go!
