Captain Jack Harkness marries

Timothy Kincaid

July 3rd, 2013

Or, more accurately, John Barrowman, who played Captain Jack Harkness on the Dr. Who / Torchwood series, married his long-time partner Scott Gill yesterday.

Um — that would be John Barrowman.

Riverside? Why would anyone of any means live in Riverside County?????

Ventura I can understand, but Riverside? It’s nothing but desert and getting to Los Angeles for work would be a nightmare!

Scott and John are a very nice down to earth couple.

Palmer, you seem to be forgetting Palm Springs. That is where John and Scott live, along with thousands more LGBT family. Many of us commute to various cities, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Portland, Seattle and San Diego.

Yes Hunter, I did indeed mean John. Fixed.

Frank, I’m not sure why but I never associate Palm springs with Riverside county.

I guess it’s sort of like Park City, “In Utah, but not of Utah.” “In Riverside, but not of Riverside.”

Y’all are too funny!
Talk about Miracle Day!!
First of all, I was incredibly ASTOUNDED when the last season of Torchwood was filmed in LOS ANGELES!!
Even more astonished to find myself working in the first episode!!

I had to sign a confidentiality contract back when.
I’m a HUGE fan of Dr. Who and Torchwood. And John Barrowman and congrats to him and his cute husband!!!

Actors of any stripe are finding themselves literally ‘all over the map’ these days.
Los Angeles has gained a few people from across the pond, lately.

Considering the number of British, Canadian, and Australian actors working in American films these days, I’m never surprised at where anyone turns up.

And I have to say, after not watching TV for literally decades, I was blown away by Torchwood. Barrowman — along with the rest of the cast — immediately gained “hero” status.

Congrats to them.
