Oh. well...

Noel Clarke has been accused by almost 30 women of sexual harassment and bullying. He's been stripped of his BAFTA, and there's all sorts of investigations going on into him.

John Barrowman has exposed himself on various productions (Including Doctor Who and Torchwood). No one's really sure when this behaviour started, nor when or if it stopped.

You're up to speed.


I am a little removed from the furore but catching up. While Clarke's career is very likely not going to recover either way John Barrowman looks like he will carry on regardless, and I find that double-standard hard to stomach.
"It's only Barrowman being Barrowman" is not any sort of acceptable excuse. Anyone can foresee that If you get your knob out at work as he did you get the sack, it's known as 'Indecent Exposure', and is a criminal offence. So how did he ever get away with it? That says something about how lax and undisciplined the environment on those BBC shows were. I don't think Barrowman should be blacklisted, or lose work, it was roughly 15 years ago and I would hope he learned a lesson.

What offends me more is that you see people today ostracised and ruined for less. Take Gareth Roberts and James Dreyfuss as two example. I am 100% sure Big Finish will not be similarly treating Barrowman, he is too 'important'.

It's all grotesque double standards at work. Rank Hypocrisy. And I detest seeing it in action.

Still, how vindicated Christopher Eccleston stands. He is proven to have been honest and fair all along...
