John Barrowman has thrown his support behind the idea of the next Doctor being LGBT+.
The Doctor Who actor, who is set to reprise his role as “omnisexual” time-traveller Captain Jack Harkness in the upcoming New Year’s Day special, told The Telegraph that he can see an LGBT+ Doctor in the show’s future.
“Of course the next Doctor could be gay,” Barrowman said. “The Doctor could be bisexual, the Doctor could be fluid, whatever, it doesn’t matter. The Doctor is an alien that can try anything and everything. And that’s where the audience is right now.”
Barrowman also hinted that his Doctor Who character will be seen flirting with Jodie Whitaker’s Doctor in the New Year’s Day festive special.
