Barrowman Meets the Doctor on New Album??? Exclusive Clip!Date: 25 February 2010
The worlds of TV sci-fi and musical theatre have collided in a bonus track on John Barrowman's forthcoming solo album.
Recorded exclusively for the iTunes version of the album, "The Doctor and I" is a re-worked version of "The Wizard and I" from Wicked, about Captain Jack - Barrowman's character in Doctor Who and spin-off series Torchwood - and his relationship with the Doctor.
Barrowman explains, "I first sang this version of the song at a concert in Wales for, amongst others, David Tennant and Russell T Davies, and they loved it ... We've given it new lyrics to make the song relevant to Captain Jack and his relationship with the Doctor. It’s quirky, it's funny and it's really good. I'm terribly proud of it."
The actor is fresh from winning a Whatsonstage.com Award for Best Takeover in a Role (for La Cage Aux Folles - Wicked picked up Best West End Show), and was also recently named one of the most powerful figures in theatre on The Stage 100 list.
