No Significance Whatsoever

Despite John Barrowman's appearence on "This Morning", er...this morning, today's been another of those increasingly annoying 'slow news' days. So, with little actual Torchwood news to go off, I thought I'd be brave and report about a brand spanking new American drama called "Heroes" - and some truely fantastic casting news.


According to TV Guide:

"Question: Your superpower is super scoop. Save the world and give us some Heroes poop.— Sarah

Ausiello: Fanboys, prepare to piddle yourself. Christopher Eccleston — the original Dr. Who from the current Sci Fi/BBC series — is joining the cast in January in a really super (tee-hee) role. Speaking of cool casting, wait until you see who's ******* ****'s ****. You're going to flip."

Christopher Eccleston, probably the best-Doctor-ever, in a US drama? Stranger things have happened. It's a neat thought how fate has switched John Barrowman and Chris Eccleston around: one a (practically) American actor working in a (practically) British show; the other a Brit now working in America.

And we love them both (especially JB!).

Good luck Chris.

Now, is a Torchwood/Heroes crossover out of the question?*

*Relax boys and girls, I'm joking!
