Any Dream Will Do

Man, it feels like an eternity since I last had a news round-up to present. That's the thing about the series being on a hiatus; there's a real drought of information. Still, John Barrowman is as busy as ever - and as faithful Woodies, it's our duty to report his every movement.


John's official website has updated on the story that John will act as a judge on BBC 1's forthcoming "Any Dream Will Do" series; a series that aims to find a leading man for the West End's "Joseph and the Technicolour Dreamcoat" musical. The series is set to air during the spring sometime, with the auditions expected to begin around March time.

There's also news that John will feature on a BBC 2 series called "A Taste of My life" on March 13th. I've never seen the show myself, but am told that it features celebrities cooking a meal, and at the same time, taking part in a revealing interview about their lives thus far. Hmm, interesting. Wonder what John will cook up (*bad joke alert*)

Oh, and the site also reveals that a colt belonging to the John Best racing syndicate has been named "Captain Jack"! John Barrowman says he "can't wait to meet the colt" - and compares the experience to the Torchwood episode "Captain Jack Harkness" with two Captain Jack's coming face to face. Hey, what do you think the odds are gonna be like for a horse named Captain Jack?

Moving away from, and the latest issue of DWM has hit news stands across the United Kingdom; revealing that episode twelve of Doctor Who's third season is nameless no more! The magazine tells us that episode twelve is called "The Sound of Drums". It's thought that this episode (invisotext) sees the TARDIS return the Doctor, Martha and Jack back to Earth in 2007 - where they come face to face with the deadly Mr. Saxon...

For anybody interested, Steven Moffat (writer of the "The Empty Child" two parter that introduced Jack Harkness) has now put a name to his episode - it's called, rather simply, "Blink". It's the Doctor-lite episode (like last year's "Love & Monsters") although besides that, we know absolutely nothing at all...

Thanks to 'peter pan' from over at I've been alerted to a rather neat interview with John Barrowman, where the star tells all - revealing that, of all things, the nose wasn't right on his Jack Harkness action figure. It comes from the Pink Paper; the UK's first gay and lesbian newspaper. You can read it in full here.

And that's about it from me. There's just enough time for me to say that "Self" (head on over here for a guide to its development) has now been completed. The short film contains around about five seconds of the Captain Jack action figure, and aside from that, little else! No seriously, it's been an exhaustive experience, and one I'll probably share with you all if I can ever get around to adding it to youtube.

Enjoy the rest of the week folks.
