Doctor Who: John Barrowman in talks for 50th anniversary

Whether he was supposed to or not, John Barrowman has confirmed that he is in talks for Doctor Who's 50th anniversary special...

One entertaining thing about Doctor Who's impending 50th anniversary special (about which you can read more, here) is the eighteen-month-long staring contest in which it's forced the various former Doctors and Who cast members to participate. In every interview, public appearance, and quite possibly trip to Waitrose they've carried out for the past year and a half, this group of people have sat, eyeballs drying and extruding from their sockets, trying not to blink, trying not to be the first one to divulge that yes, of course it's happening, of course they've been asked, and of course they're doing it.

The first to break? The wonderful John Barrowman. In the course of a This Morning interview with Eamonn Holmes and Ruth Langford that took place, fittingly enough, this morning, Barrowman said:

"I haven’t had any information until just about right now, and all I can say to you is that we’re discussing things. That’s an exclusive. You guys are the first. Even yesterday I was giving interviews and I was saying ‘I have heard nothing’ and now I can give you a little bit of an exclusive."

We love you John Barrowman. Watch the full confession over at Blogtor Who.
