John Barrowman spotted for the first time since being axed from Doctor Who Live event after exposing himself on set

JOHN Barrowman has been spotted for the first time since he was dropped from a Doctor Who live show amid allegations he exposed himself on the set of the BBC drama.

The telly star, 54, has been axed from Doctor Who: Time Fracture – an interactive theatre show – after the accusations were made against him.



John – who played Captain Jack Harkness in both Doctor Who and spin-off show Torchwood – will now no longer appear in a pre-recorded video in the London show.

After his axing was confirmed, grey-haired John was spotted close to his home in California while heading out to run errands in the hot weather.

Dressed in a white Ralph Lauren T-shirt, navy shorts and trainers, the actor was seen in Palm Springs as he headed to buy an iced coffee from Starbucks.

John was later spotted wearing a face mask as he filled up his car at a petrol station. He had switched to a navy T-shirt at this point.



The Dancing On Ice judge has been accused of repeatedly exposing himself on the set of both Doctor Who and spin-off show Torchwood.

A video from 2015 shows his co-star Noel Clarke making jokes about the star exposing his penis "every five seconds" and "hitting it on everything".

John has apologised for his antics which he described as “high- spirited behaviour, larking about and tomfoolery”.

Witnesses describe the flashing as inappropriate pranks, not sexually predatory behaviour.

The star has insisted it was “only ever intended in good humour” and never meant to be sexual in nature.

This comes 12 years after John apologised after being accused of exposing himself in a live appearance on BBC Radio One, with DJs Nick Grimshaw and Annie Mac.

In his latest apology, John said: “With the benefit of hindsight, I understand that upset may have been caused by my exuberant behaviour and I have apologised for this previously.

"Since my apology in November 2008, my understanding and behaviour have also changed."

Meanwhile, John's former Doctor Who co-star Noel Clarke was last month accused by multiple women of sexual harassment, which he denies.

Clarke has said he "vehemently" rejects allegations of sexual misconduct or criminal behaviour but will be seeking professional help and has apologised "deeply" for his actions.

John has said that he was at no point made aware of any allegations against Clarke.

The BBC and representatives for John have been contacted for comment.
