Is he or isn’t he? According to the latest reports, John Barrowman will not be appearing in the 50th Anniversary Episode of Doctor Who. Barrowman tweeted the news, saying simply:
I will not be involved in the 50th Anniversary Episode of Dr WHO. JB

Although he’d previously tweeted that he’d be involved in the anniversary events, he quickly clarified that “Re 50th I didn’t say in what capacity or what medium so stay calm and carry on.”
Word was that the BBC wasn’t pleased with his initial comment. Clearly, they got to him.
Even Steven Moffat said in a recent Entertainment Weekly interview that, “It is important you don’t turn it into a fanfest…We can’t make this all about looking backwards. It’s actually got to be the start of a new story.” So, start wiping your tears now because it looks like we aren’t going to be seeng good old Captain Jack anytime soon. Then again, the BBC might just be playing games.
