Holby City spoilers: John Barrowman makes his debut as cutthroat recruiter with his sights set on Nicky


HOLBY City welcomes John Barrowman next week as he makes his debut as a cutthroat recruiter with his sights set on Nicky.

The shrewd consultant, nicknamed The Poacher, is there to observe the doctors and has them jumping through hoops as they try to impress him.

Cameron Dunn (Nic Jackman) is confident he can win him over and tries to curry favour newbie Drew Nicholson-Heath, busting his chops to stand out among the medics.

But his best efforts annoy savvy Drew and he makes it clear he finds him a bit of a class clown.

Sensing his tactic haven’t worked on Drew, sneaky Cameron worries he could be exposed and makes a plan to throw someone under the bus and get ahead.

He notices Drew eyeing up his friend and flatmate Nicky for a position in Dubai.

His dark side emerges when he spots an opportunity to gaslight Nicky into thinking she made a mistake in theatre – but will Drew catch him out?

Drew is the perfect role for sassy John Barrowman, 52, as seen in the Spring trailer.

Drew has past history with Ange Godard (Dawn Steele) and the pair cross paths in the new Spring trailer.

Ange immediately questions why Drew is there and he replies: “Slumming it, I guess.”

John – who played Captain Jack Harkness in Doctor Who and spin-off series, Torchwood – said in a statement: “Being part of another iconic BBC drama is just fabulous.

“I was welcomed with open arms by the cast and crew and felt like part of the Holby City family right away.

“My character Drew brings a new flavour to the show and I look forward to his return soon. Surgery will never be the same again.”

Holby City airs on Tuesdays at 8pm on BBC One.
