About the Author

I watch a lot of television, probably too much. But can you really watch too much TV? I've yet to find out. Anyway, I especially love TV when they give us positive portrayals of gays, something that has gotten better but we're still fighting for. I've written about gays in television for many years first at the much missed After Elton, then New Now Next and now at TV Source. It's kind of a passion of mine and I look forward to sharing it with you.

  1. Casualty – the more I see of this storyline, the more I am convinced that it was written with a younger and more naive-looking actor in mind. They seem to have rushed it through a bit as Sebastian has only been around for a couple of weeks and they haven’t established his character enough. I would think that he would be in the show for a little while, just because the actor is coming off the back of a soap (he was in Emmerdale for a few years) and could probably do better that a small part. If I remember correctly he was in Torchwood too. It’s a bit disappointing that we’ve seen this sort of storyline before on Casualty, albeit with some differences – if you recall a few years ago Tobey got together with Ben and then reported him for taking advantage to save it from coming out. I know it’s not the same thing happening here, but the whole wrongful complaint thing is boring. Poor Dylan!

    Regarding Brits and Christmas plays – LOL! Well, you would be forgiven for thinking it, especially with Eastenders at the moment, but I assure you that we’re not all down the church hall every night putting on a local play. Such a contrived storyline at the moment on more than one UK soap!
