We're used to seeing John Barrowman's (Doctor Who, Torchwood, Arrow) antics--yet we never tire of them. Fans were delighted at San Diego Comic-Con yesterday when Barrowman pirouetted onto stage wearing a short sparkling TARDIS dress complete with yellow petticoat and matching Converse All-Stars. He treated the audience to singing and dancing, funny stories, and some honest discussion. He then answered questions from the audience.
Of course the topic of the new Doctor came up, and he didn't shy from addressing some of the hateful reactions seen around the internet, but his ultimate message was one of hope.
“If we buy into it, we commit to it, we go where the TARDIS takes us…we get on the TARDIS, or in the TARDIS, for the journey, for the stories.”
I'm on board if you are, Captain Jack...
