Captain Jack Harkness Gets Married
And not "married," thank you very much, but married. Captain Jack Harkness is the dashing bisexual character from the new series of "Doctor Who." He's played by dashing gay actor John Barrowman who my sister Leslie wanted to date after seeing him in a West End revival of Cole Porter's "Anything Goes." A very funny, talented man, Barrowman and architect Scott Gill signed a civil partnership in the UK. Then Barrowman went off to perform in the "panto" Jack and The Beanstalk. (The "panto" is family theater, complete with hissable villains and typical holiday fare.) Barrowman and Gill have been together for 16 years, which is already longer than most marriages, isn't it?
