    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.

I should make it clear that I would see Barrowman immune to a lot of things, but not everything.
The substance, the momentum, isn't there to 'cancel' John Barrowman. With Noel Clarke the charges are more serious and with a lot of people (women) coming forward to directly accuse him of inappropriate behaviour. Whether he actually did anything that crossed the law is up to the police to decide, but if he didn't break the law, if the charges end up not having much real substance to them, then he should be allowed to get back to work and on with his life. "Should". The reality is he may be finished in the UK as a respected force, and so be forced to look elsewhere for work.....

Series 13 on the other hand, well it looks like it is intended as an autumn transmission again. In the same timeslot too I would think. And all things considered I don't see the ratings improving any. If anything this season is probobly going to scrape the bottom and we may well see 3m or less by the time it ends... people have made their minds up and there isn't anything I can see that will change their views.
