    I think that Noel Clarke's career is over. 20 testimonies: that's too big.

Oh yes. Clarke's dead in the water.

    In the case of John Barrowman, so far, it sounds like exhibitionism, naturism, histrionics & immature pranks...

I agree with that. I don't think he meant any harm by his antics. His intentions are irrelevant though. He exposed himself many times on various sets and... well, there are laws against it. As Clarke says in the convention video, 'Don't try doing it in your workplace guys. You'll lose your job and land in jail', or words to that effect.

    Also, in the case of Barrowman, it would have happened in 2005, 15 years ago. In 2008, he had already apologised for a similar incident:“I apologise for any offence I have caused. I was joining in the light-hearted and fun banter of the show and went too far. I was wrong to do this and it will never happen again.”

It's happened since. One absolutely confirmed case in 2008, and even as recently as 2018 the producers of a reality show he appeared on had to warn him against exposing himself. They'd heard of his behaviour on other shows. I think there'll be more revelations (No pun intended) about Barrowman from other production teams in the weeks ahead.

    Everybody remembers what happened to Hugh Grant. It didn't end his career.

There's a big difference. What Grant did was consensual between both parties.

There's also a big difference in the people running the BBC between 2008 and today. They're absolutely rabid about showing they mean business when it comes to female and minority rights. One actor means nothing to them. They'll throw Barrowman under the bus in a heartbeat if it means protecting their reputation.
