Most people know him as Captain Jack from Dr. Who and Torchwood or maybe as the theatre actor who sometimes puts his outsize knob in the hands of co-stars as they step on stage in an effort to put them off their lines (read that somewhere) but the musical theatre fans amongst you will know that John ‘Big John’ Barrowman is also something of a terrific singer. Which is prolly why he’s getting a record out.
It’s called Another Side and – a bit like Barry Manilow’s Songs of the 70s album – it’s a selection of his favourite old songs by people like Carly Simon, Cyndi Lauper and Dame Elton of John. And would you hate us if we said it was actually surprisingly good?
Find out what’s on it and, while you’re at it, pop a couple of questions inside the man himself…
