Found via Outpost Gallifrey here

Doctor Who actor John Barrowman is to take part in a Civil Partnership ceremony with his partner of ten years..

Barrowman, who plays Captain Jack, said they were hoping to keep the event low key.

He said: “We're just going to sign the civil register. We're not going to have any ceremony because I'm not a supporter of the word marriage for a gay partnership.”

In October it was announced that Barrowman is to star in an adult spin off of the Doctor Who series. The new series will be called Torchwood (an anagram of Doctor Who) and will centre on a team that are investigating aliens at large in Britain.

Filming will begin early next year in Cardiff. The executive producers are Russell T Davies and Julie Gardner, Head of Drama in BBC Wales.

Torchwood will be shown in the summer of 2006 on BBC Three.

Barrowman is also appearing in the new BBC One series The Sound of the Musicals, which starts on January 14.
