John Barrowman, confirmed as one of the actors in the new Doctor Who series, spent time on Richard Bacon's late-night chat show on BBC Radio Five over the weekend and was asked about his pending appearance on the show. Barrowman was initially very cautious when being quizzed by Bacon, refusing to say even what length his hair would be, but he did finally relate that he wouldn't start filming until November and that his character was "something of an intergalactic rogue" who would become a companion to the Doctor. We should add that this isn't confirmation that his role -- known only as Captain Jack -- will be a traditional "companion" but will certainly have time with the Doctor and Rose late in the season.
