    I've just seen a trailer for this - it starts Monday on BBC2 and not only does it have an award winning cast it also has a lovely GAY INTEREST storyline.

    From the director of The Fall and the writer of Child 44 (and who happens to be the boyfriend of the BBC's head of commissioning).

    Ben Whishaw!
    Charlotte Rampling!
    Jim Broadbent!
    Mark Gatiss!
    Adrian Lester!

    AND Dame Harriet Walter!

    Apparently I am going to have to watch this tonight.

    It featured NOTED HOMOSEXUAL Ben Whishaw playing a HOMOSEXUAL involved in some kind of SPYING. It's written by NOTED HOMOSEXUAL Tom Rob Smith whose BOYFRIEND Ben Stephenson is not only a NOTED HOMOSEXUAL in his own right but also the CONTROLLER OF BBC DRAMA COMISSIONING :eyes:. I see it also has NOTED HOMOSEXUAL Mark Gatiss in a SMALL ROLE

    And people say the BBC is run by some kind of HOMOSEXUAL MAFIA. HOW RIDICULOUS!

    I am quite UP FOR THIS. With so many NOTED HOMOSEXUALS it should serve a big UP YOURS to the corrupt world of heteronormativity.

    Always a good start when you start off with a warning for scenes of a sexual nature.

    Can this be merged with the other thread please?

    I hope he doesn't die too but if he does I hope he doesn't get found in a hold-all in a bath with wardrobes full of women's clothes.

    Ben Whishaw was BETTER than the show deserved. Well that's what MR W tells me. I'm afraid I was PICKING HOLES in that you would SMELL a decomposing dead body in an apartment as soon as you walked in the front door, and I HATE IT WHEN PEOPLE SIT THERE PICKING HOLES IN THINGS

    It was excellent, it felt a bit like a Hugo Blick drama. Of the impressive cast only Jim Broadbent has popped up so far.

    What was the thing he swallowed and then shat out?

    I couldn't finger who the aspergers boyfriend was at first, then I realised he was one of the knobs from Kingsman.

    I'll wait for the arrival of MADAME RAMPLING before I decide whether to drop this or not.

    The STOP FUCKING HATE's reviewer was indeed shocked and appalled by the homosexualness of it all, and seemingly completely misunderstands the concept of transvestism.

    What a charmingly worded review, my particular favourite phrase being ''they got down to being gay'' as if it was some kind of task to be ticked off the list :D

    Anyway, this was great. I do love a good slow burn, so many of the prestige drama's coming out these days seem to miss the balance between slow burn and outright sluggish, but this easily held my attention throughout. Really interested to see where it goes, though at this point it could be anywhere!

    It went from slow, to hot, and then to tense without a break. I would have liked to have watched the whole thing by now to be honest.

    So the Mail's examples of how you can't turn on the TV without having naked gay men being thrust in your face are a three part mini series that ended three months ago, and a character who isn't gay or naked?

    They also forgot to mention Cuffs, which of the 4 main characters features an out and proud occasionally shirtless gay who kisses other out and proud gays in gay clubs, a MIXED RACE LESBIAN who has a girlfriend, and a black who is completely au fait with it all. (There's also a heterosexual man, possibly Welsh, who sleeps with prostitutes but that's probably acceptable at 8pm)

    Fucking hell, it's like 1986 (or thereabouts) all over again. The Evangelical Alliance can fuck right off

    I'm surprised Mary Whitehouse didn't put a call in from beyond the grave

    ONE COMPLAINT! Imagine having to be the POOR CUNT at Ofcom having to deal with that. I hope there was lots of EYE ROLLING and huffs of "WASTING MY FUCKING TIME"

    I thought this was good but there was some stuff that was unrealistic. Like Ben Whishaw being cast as the top.

    Isn't that the point of the watershed? If it's after, it's after.

    I believe it's not as clear cut as that. I think there are rules at what can be shown at what time after the watershed. That doesn't mean this has broken the rules, of course.

    All we saw was a pair of buttocks. I mean, if we'd seen actual arsehole, maybe I could understand the complaints. Though if you're complaint about seeing Edward Holcroft's arse you should probably just call Dignitas.

    Did we see Ben's arse? If not I'm complaining. Maybe that was why.

    I think so too. No way was that a mid 30s bottom.

    And quite frankly I SHOULD KNOW

    It's a reasonable call. Regardless! A fine structure regardless.

    If it's sagging and losing its general pleasing roundness in your thirties, that's a prematurely ageing arse.
