John Barrowman researching for a new documentary
Torchwood and Doctor Who star John Barrowman recently popped into Renishaw's New Mills HQ to help him in his research for a potential new documentary.
The actor visited the Wotton-under-Edge works with his brother-in-law Prof Steven Gill, who is a world-leading neurosurgeon based at Frenchay Hospital near Bristol.
That is where the first of Renishaw's new enhanced surgical robots has been installed.
Barrowman, who played dashing sci-fi hero Captain Jack Harkness, runs Barrowman Barker Productions. It is looking at making a TV documentary about new medical procedures to treat degenerative diseases such as Parkinson's.
