John Barrowman video will be removed from Doctor Who theatre show following misconduct allegations

A video featuring John Barrowman will be removed from an immersive Doctor Who theatre show following allegations about the actor's past conduct.

The pre-recorded video, planned to be shown during the Doctor Who: Time Fracture show, depicted Barrowman as his Captain Jack Harkness character.

Its removal comes in the wake a series of misconduct allegations made against the actor.

Last month, a 2015 video from a Doctor Who convention was unearthed, in which actor Noel Clarke alleged that Barrowman would expose himself on the show’s set and take “his d*** out every five minutes”.

At one point in the clip, Clarke asks his co-star Camille Coduri whether she remembers “that time he put it on your shoulder in the makeup truck?” to which she responds: “Yes, I do”.

On 7 May, Barrowman responded, telling The Guardian that he did engage in “tomfoolery” while working on Doctor Who and its spin-off Torchwood, and that he has evolved in the years since.

The actor said that his “high-spirited behaviour” was “only ever intended in good humour to entertain colleagues on set and backstage”. He added: “With the benefit of hindsight, I understand that upset may have been caused by my exuberant behaviour and I have apologised for this previously.”

In 2008, Barrowman apologised after pulling down his trousers during an interview with BBC Radio 1, saying that he had joined in “the light-hearted and fun banter of the show” but “went too far”.

In his new statement, Barrowman reiterated his stance, saying: “Since my apology in November 2008, my understanding and behaviour have also changed.”
