I don't know about the others, but I doubt if Barrowman had time in his schedule later. He's started Panto rehersal this week (show opens on 11th).

I'm looking forward to SCD at Xmas now.

Actually it was his singing that impressed me first. He's a master at singing Cole Porter, Jerry Herman, Sondheim, that's the sort of music he excells at, (even I cringe sometimes at some...

I don't know, all I know is that my partner mentioned it a couple of days ago. He only has the standard freeview channels though, not extra ones, so it must have been one of those.
