John Barrowman Guest Stars in My Family

By Mark
It was recently revealed that John Barrowman will be appearing in the upcoming one hundredth episode of 'My Family' and an official press release for the episode has now been released by the BBC. John will play someone who works in the medical profession in the episode and his character will be called The Doctor which is a link to his work on Doctor Who. You can view the official press release for the episode below;

Ben is stunned to discover that celebrity dentist, Jeremy Livingston, has dedicated his new book to him, especially because he hasn't got a clue who Jeremy is, as the comedy continues.

Meanwhile, Susan is stranded in an Albanian airport where a handsome stranger comes to her rescue when her bag is stolen. She is instantly smitten with The Doctor, a dashing American, who is heading off on an adventure around the world. The pair connect and he soon asks Susan to join him on his travels. But, could Susan really turn her back on Ben for a lifetime of romance, and could The Doctor really be all that he seems?

As Ben searches through some old memorabilia to jog his memory, he finally realises Jeremy was an old college mate whose work he always copied.

Jeremy invites Ben out for dinner to reminisce about the old days, but Ben's just in it for the free meal. It soon transpires Jeremy is actually jealous of Ben's mundane, fame-free life and is fed up with his celebrity lifestyle. Encouraged by Ben, and after a few too many drinks, Jeremy hastily dumps his book publisher, £1million dental floss contract and his glamorous, trophy wife.

The next day, Jeremy is feeling worse for wear and needs Ben to remind him of the previous night's events. He is horrified when Ben tells him what happened and leads Ben into a tricky situation that has disaster written all over it.

Ben is played by Robert Lindsay, Jeremy Livingston by David Haig, Susan by Zoë Wanamaker and The Doctor by John Barrowman.

This episode of 'My Family' is scheduled to air on the seventh of May at 8pm on BBC One and it will have an approximate running time of thirty minutes. In the episode, John will guest star among the regular cast of Zoë Wanamaker, who played the voice of Lady Cassandra O' Brien in the first and second series of Doctor Who, and Daniela Denby-Ashe who appeared in the first series of Torchwood as a character called Mary in the episode 'Greeks Bearing Gifts'. A reminder about John's appearance on this show will be posted on it's date of transmission.
