‘Torchwood’s John Barrowman Praises Queen, Teases Role in Diamond Jubilee

John Barrowman

Doctor Who and Torchwood fans may want to keep their eyes peeled during BBC America’s live coverage of The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee: Thames Pageant at 8:30/7:30c on Sunday, June 3. John Barrowman (Captain Jack) will be putting on his reporter’s hat, presenting live coverage of the boat race from the Belfry Barge on the Thames, and he chatted with us about his new gig recently for our ‘Brit List: Summer of London’ series.

Watch as he teases his role in the biggest royal event of the year and offers his praise for the Queen’s 60-year reign. He’s so cheeky.


(Watch as Luther star Idris Elba shares his thoughts on the Queen.)

While not British himself - he was born and raised in St. Louis, Missouri - he once received inordinate hospitality in London for sharing the name of a dead but beloved EastEnders character. His Anglophilia stems from a high school love of Morrissey, whom he calls his "gateway drug" into British culture.
