Season 6: Episodes 18-23
US Transmission: 21 March to 16 May 2010
UK Transmission commencing 30 May (E4) and 2 June (Channel 4)
In the summer of 2009, John was invited to meet the creator and Excecutive Producer of Desperate Housewives, Marc Cherry, who is a fan of Torchwood.
Just two hours after the meeting in Los Angeles, as John was driving across the US filming Around the World in 80 Days, John's manager, Gavin Barker, rang to confirm that Marc wanted John to guest-star on the show. John's scream of delight made his road trip partner, Myleene Klass, and the crew in the camera truck following them, jump with shock - and John almost drove off the road!
John appears in five of the the last six episodes of season six, playing Patrick Logan, the dangerous ex-boyfriend from whom Angie (Drea de Matteo, pictured in a dramatic scene with John below) has been hiding for many years.
