John Barrowman has been removed from an interactive Doctor Who experience, following allegations of misconduct on the set of the hit BBC show and its spin-off Torchwood.

The actor, who played Captain Jack Harkness in the sci-fi series, has been accused of repeatedly exposing himself on the set of both programmes.

A recently resurfaced video from 2015 shows his co-star Noel Clarke making jokes about Barrowman exposing his penis “every five seconds” and “hitting it on everything”.

Interactive theatre show Doctor Who: Time Fracture, which is due to begin in London on May 26, has confirmed a pre-recorded video by Barrowman will no longer feature.

Under the question “What’s happening with Captain Jack Harkness and Torchwood in the show?” in the FAQ section of the website, a statement says: “Immersive Everywhere have taken the decision to remove this pre-record from Doctor Who: Time Fracture.

“We will continue to include content that pays tribute to this brilliant show that is Torchwood so as not to disappoint its fans, and are working on an exciting storyline to be announced soon.”

Doctor Who: Time Fracture, which will feature more than 40 live performers, will transport audience members to 1940 during the Blitz where a mysterious weapon destroys a small corner of Mayfair and opens a rift in space and time.

Sources previously told The Guardian they did not believe Barrowman’s behaviour to be sexually predatory and described it as misjudged “larking about” and “joking”.

Barrowman told the newspaper his “high-spirited behaviour” was “only ever intended in good humour to entertain colleagues on set and backstage.

“With the benefit of hindsight, I understand that upset may have been caused by my exuberant behaviour and I have apologised for this previously,” he said.

“Since my apology in November 2008, my understanding and behaviour have also changed.”

It comes as Barrowman’s co-star Clarke is accused by multiple women of sexual harassment, on the set of the BBC show and at a promotional event.

A further 20 women, who knew him in a professional capacity, have also accused him of misconduct.

Clarke has previously said he “vehemently” denies allegations of sexual misconduct or criminal behaviour but will be seeking professional help and has apologised “deeply” for his actions.

Barrowman has said that he was at no point made aware of any allegations against Clarke.

The BBC and representatives for Barrowman have been contacted for comment.
