BBC News Online is running a report on the civil partnership ceremony between Torchwood and Doctor Who starJohn Barrowman and his long-term boyfriend Scott Gill, which took place at the St David's Hotel in Cardiff this afternoon. Barrowman, who wore a kilt for the ceremony reflecting his Scottish roots, is quoted as saying: "It feels great and I think more gay men and gay women should go ahead and do it as long as they're serious about it. It's not really recognition but it's important for people to see the normality of the entire situation and it forces people who don't agree with gay men and women ... to have to accept us. We deserve the rights like everybody else. It's been a long wait but we legitimised our relationship to each other a long time ago when we signed our mortgages together and this is just something that forces people who don't want to recognise it that they have to."
