OKAY...WHO THOUGHT THE MONOCLE WAS A GOOD GIFT?!?
But anyways! Happy Birthday John! It's strange to think that the good old Captain is 40 years old today (and certainly not looking it!). The man, who's had a varied career from stage, screen and lottery presenting has a cult following on the internet - so if you fans want to leave him a message of support, feel free to do just that in the comments section below.
If anybody's not familiar with John's work outside of Doctor Who and Torchwood, and would like to learn more there's two great resources at your disposal. John's wikipedia page has a detailed history of his life so far (including his numerous West End / Broadway appearences) - and johnbarrowman.net (the star's official page) keeps you up to date on all the latest jb news.
Life begins at 40 - so have a fantastic time...
