      With the recent serious allegations against John Barrowman and (Especially) Noel Clarke surfacing, it looks like there's more trouble ahead for Series 13 of Doctor Who.

    I thought on this and it came to me that a simple barometer to answer your question could be - "Is Barrowman trending on Twitter?"

Yes. He trended for two days solid.

    So if Barrowman is trending on Twitter and being chased down he may have a problem, but as Grey Gargoyle put it down below I agree that Barrowman is a character who is beyond that sort of 'cancelling', all the attention is on Noel Clarke at the moment. Whereas Barrowman is just doing what he always does, fooling around, being a big kid, and generally being over-the-top.

Ah. That 'Barrowman is immune' is something that was mentioned time and time again. Tweet after tweet with variations on 'Let's see just how meaningful the #metoo movement is. Let's see if they go after an actor who's gay, and an actor who's black'.

The politically correct BBC are certainly not going to want that kind of pressure.
