The Indestructible John Barrowman Remains … Indestructible

Torchwood‘s John Barrowman always wanted to be a rally car racer, apparently. That, in addition to acting, singing, and presenting. Which explains why he agreed to film a segment for the British show Fifth Gear, getting behind the wheel of tricked out a Subaru Impreza — which he managed to crash. Don’t worry, he survived with only minor scrapes, but how fitting Barrowman’s Torchwood character is a man who cannot die.

      @Tallskin: Top Gear was canceled in 2001. It was replaced by Fifth Gear. Foolish accusastions of inaccuracy much?

      well a show called ‘Top Gear’ is still airing on BBC America and the episode are much more recent then 2001 (and I do believe Top Gear does still air in the UK since NPR just did a quick story on the fact that Top Gear revealed the identify of their test driver ‘The Stig’.

      Top Gear is still in production (as of 2008) and runs in the U.S. on BBC America. Very fun show for car enthusiasts, wish they could do an American version…they’ve tried pilots, but just can’t get it together.

      Stephen Frye just guested on Top Gear a week or two ago (the current UK season, not whatever’s showing on BBC America). Jeremy Clarkson’s interview of him was hilarious, and included discussion of a gay cruising iPhone app.

      It’s too bad car enthusiasts in the U.S. are erroneously characterized as mullet-sporting meatheads (mostly by Prius-driving coastals who are completely numb to the joys of non-utilitarian motoring). Thanks, NASCAR.
