Captain Jack stars in a very special Doctor Who episode

Doctor WhoJohn Barrowman isn't just Captain Jack Harkness on Doctor Who and Torchwood. He also is a variety show host for a BBC series called Tonight's The Night which allows contestants to live out their performance dreams. Using his association with the former, he actually gave a contestant on the latter the chance to live out his dream of appearing on Doctor Who.

It's a cute scene which obviously doesn't fit into any sort of show continuity (or as much continuity as Doctor Who can have). David Tennant himself makes a special appearance in the episode and steals the show. Watching Tennant's brief cameo in this show, I'm even more convinced that Matt Smith has big shoes to fill when he eventually takes over the role.

On the other hand, if your dream is to appear on an episode of Doctor Who, why would you allow your face to be covered by a blue mask? Watch the video after the jump.

To be fair they guy had won a "competition" on John's show - where you had to create a monster - and it's persona - and be judged by a panel - the auditions were hysterically funny. And when DT arrived on set I shrieked with delight as I had imagined him surprising the winner as The Doctor and not as himself. It was a wonderful moment when the guy glanced around and saw it was David's arm around him and not John's. It's great that both David and John love the show so much that they aren't afraid to send it up - I adore them both! (Oh - and I saw John Barrowman on his current concert tour last week and he is just magnificent!!)

John is awesome, no matter what. He is so full of charm, and has an ornery grin, that I melt every time I see him. I know he's gay, but I still tingle for him.
