Billie Piper Pregnant?

Sources have revealed that Billie Piper (Rose Tyler) may well be three-months pregnant! A friend has confirmed this, but there is no official word from Billie and husband Laurence Fox. According to Hello! Magazine, Billie was apparently seen "strolling along a beach in Mauritius, tenderly stroking her tummy." This is still a rumour for now, and is not 100% official. We will post up any more news as it comes in.

Thanks to Lilysowl for letting us know!

John Barrowman at Collectormania 13: Parking Issues

We earlier informed you that John Barrowman will be attending Collectormania 13 at the center: MK, Milton Keynes. If you are going by car, the Collectormania website has suggested parking in the Park And Ride on Junction 14 of the MK Coachway. There are in fact roadworks happening that weekend, and the car park will be closed and unavailable. Instead, try parking in the XScape center. Seeing as several thousand people are expected to attend, the earlier you arrive, the better. On a lighter note, Eve Myles has also been confirmed to attend.

Thanks to Anna from BARROWMANONLINE!

John Barrowman Saves the Day

John Barrowman has proved 'a real life hero' after helping neighbours Brenda McDade and Ann Carden. The two were on a London street when Ann's handbag - containing her purse and heart medication - was stolen. They had just watched John on stage in Anything Goes, and while they were struggling to get a taxi to the chemist, John pulled up in his silver BMW. Here is what Brenda's granddaughter had to say:

After nana and Ann told him their plight he immediately took them to the chemist, where Ann managed to get her medication and then waited and took them on to their hotel. He escorted them into reception and then found they still had no rooms ready except for smoking which they didn't want. After intervening and pretending my nana was his 'Aunty Brenda,' he complained to the manager and a room was suddenly found for them, as was some free room service. The next day when they checked out they discovered their bill had been settled in full. What a guy."

Totally Torchwood Poll

Another month passed, another poll finished. March's poll asked: "Who is your favourite Torchwood Season 2 guest character so far?". With a close start between Martha and Captain John, the latter won with 55% voting for him; Martha Jones came second with a total of 41%; Tommy came third with only 9% voting for him; following closely behind was Adam with 7% and in a miserable last spot was Beth with only 1% voting for her. April's poll won't start till after the final episode of Torchwood Season 2 (you'll be voting for your favourite episode), and this time we'll leave the poll go for a few extra weeks. Please note that there will be no monthly media for April, but a double lot next month.

Happy April Fool's

No, this site IS NOT closing down, no Torchwood Season 3 HAS NOT been confirmed, and no, Eve Myles and David Tennant WERE NOT seen holding hands last night. We here at Totally Torchwood just want to wish you all a very Happy April Fool's!
