Smitten With Smith!

John Barrowman has admitted his delight a working with actress Elisabeth Sladen - aka the legendary Sarah Jane Smith - on the final episodes of Doctor Who's fourth series.

"I'm in love with Lis," confesses Captain Jack's alter-ego in the new issue of Doctor Who Magazine. "The first time that I met her, a year or so ago, she was coming out of an elevator. I grabbed her and said, 'I just want to say what an honour it is to meet you. I am so thrilled! Hopefully, we'll get a chance to work together one day.'

She was very gracious, but after she'd gone I thought, John, you idiot, you've embarrassed yourself in front of Sarah Jane Smith!

"When she came on set for these final episodes," adds John, "there was a point when Davros appeared and I grabbed her hand, and we're looking at each other as John and Elisabeth, looking and thinking, this is so surreal! We were part of history that day. We all had to take in the moment, because it will probably never happen again. And our final scene together - oh, it was beautiful."

Other highlights of the new Doctor Who Magazine include:

Previews The Stolen Earth and Journey's End; Elisabeth Sladen revealing all about her encounters with Davros - and why Journey's End could be her last ever meeting with the Doctor; Steven Moffat, Doctor Who's showrunner-in-waiting, speaks candidly about talking over the series... and how to write a Doctor Who story; plus Midnight's Lesley Sharp interviewed. There's even a free classic series novel!
