Torchwood and Doctor Who Rumours


An article published by SyFy Portal has had many viewers in a spin, revealing potential Major Spoilers for both Doctor who and Torchwood. It reveals that Torchwood will be moved to a different night to air, a list of many actors who will be leaving the show/s, and lots more. For now, this just seems like propaganda and everyone seems to be getting off on it. Please treat the article as a rumour and nothing more. If you really want to read the article (I highly suggest you don't - and yes it does contain **MAJOR SPOILERS** if true) click here.

"Something Borrowed" Wallpapers + Trailer


The BBC Torchwood site (Non-UK), have released the wallpapers available to download from Something Borrowed. There are only three currently available, all of which are of Gwen and her mother. The trailer is also available, which you can view below:

John Barrowman's Medicine Cabinet


There was an article in the Mail on Sunday in which John Barrowman told viewers what was in his bathroom medicine cabinet:


1: I am such a hyper wired person I generally have trouble sleeping
so I use Nytol Herbal Tablets
2: When my voice is feeling tired I take a swig of Boots Glycerine
Honey and Lemon Linctus to lubricate my vocal chords so I don't end
up sounding raspy
3: As a singer I shouldn't say this as it can dry out your vocal
chords but I love the smell of Olbas Oil and often sneak a sniff of it
4: I use Focus Aquify eye drops, contact lens re-moisturizing eye
drops and I keep a bottle handy when I'm filming. Whitening eye
drops are not good for your eyes
5: I know Karvol is supposed to be for children but it can loosen up
a cough in a second
6:People often assume because my teeth are so white that they are
veneers, but they are all my own. Instead of a sonic screwdriver
like the Doctor I brush with a Colgate 360 Microsonic toothbrush
7: One product I swear by is Cetaphil Non-Irritating Cleanser. I'm
always being told I have great skin. I use this really cheap lotion
on my face every day. I don't believe in spending lots of money on
products, I'd rather save it and spend it on Botox
8: I also use Kiehls products if my skin gets dry, especially the
Kiehl's Creme de Corps
9: I have to shave every day for work and use a Gillette Mach 3 Turbo
Razor
10: Nivea For Men Sensitive shaving gel before splashing my face with
cold water
