DOCTOR WHO’s John Barrowman has this great idea

File under “If Only…”

Just like everybody else, actors have ideas. And just like everybody else’s ideas, some of them are good. What separates actors from writers, though, is that we actually turn those ideas into stories and write them down for others to read/see/hear.

We’d love to turn this into one of those stories. Or even sit and watch as the idea’s source, John Barrowman AKA Captain Jack of DOCTOR WHO and TORCHWOOD fame, wrote his way into television history.

Barrowman talks Jack & River Spin-off

John Barrowman has been speaking once more about his ideas for a new potential Doctor Who spin-off featuring Captain Jack and River Song.

In an interview with TVaddict, he shared some thoughts on how the show might work: “I’d like to see the two of them prior to their lives crossing in some time realm where they actually meet up without the Doctors or anything like that and they are rogue heroes.

It appears that Wil Wheaton may have heard the news from a Doctor Who related source, writing on his tumblr yesterday:

“Am I the only person who knows who has been cast as the next Doctor, and who has known this was coming for several weeks? I figured that if it filtered down to me, it must be common knowledge among people who matter.

…now I feel kind of special. Yay me.”

Wheaton does have Doctor Who friends, (Barrowman!) and this was in direct response to the news circulating that Chiwetel Ejiofor has 7/1 odds of being the favorite for the role of the 12th Doctor
