"A scene from Match Of The Day by Chris Thompson is perfectly suited to expert's choice John Hogg, a Scottish native with a commanding presence and striking physique. Stealing the scene with a delightfully arrogant attitude as footballer Rob being man-handled in his physio session, Hogg later returns as Charlie in Breathing Corpses by Laura Wade, accidentally scaring the living daylights out of hotel maid Amy. As fear turns to amiability, Hogg nicely steers this scene towards a more romantic angle showing a likeable softer side to his acting..."
"Has Coronation Street employed a Head of Hotness in casting? In recent weeks we've had Callum (Sean Ward) and, this week, paramedic Mark (John Hogg). The latter is tall, dark and handsome and has a deep Scottish accent that makes your heart melt. Alas, he hasn't been brought in as a regular, just a dramatic device to enable Katy to better herself. Trust me: job done. Mark has to stay. I want to hear a lot more about those mouth - to - mouth skills he's been expounding. And see them!"
"He is the hottest male to hit Corrie in years and fans hope John Hogg will be a permanent fixture on the Street. The actor sent pulses racing when he appeared in two episodes of the soap last week as hunky motorcycle paramedic Mark Strachan. Now viewers are pleading with the writers to bring the 29-year-old back as a regular on the ITV show after being seduced by his sexy accent."
"This remains a brave and interesting experiment with Ibsen's narrative, featuring strong performances not only from Alison Peebles as Mrs Alving, but from Scarlett Mack as her assistant Regina, John Hogg as Oswald, and Laurie Ventry and Billy Riddoch as Manders and Engstrand. And with a fine set, lighting and sound evoking both the chilly modern house that has replaced the old Alving mansion, and the landscape beyond it, this troubling new drama conjures up some chilling ghosts of its own - not the same as Ibsen's, but very closely related, in a way the old man himself might have appreciated, even while reserving the right to tweak a few details into a more satisfactory place."
