Meat to Please You - Parker Williams - ADULTS ONLY!

Model Watch: Turning Scarlet

Did any fellow gay porn consumers double-take when they saw the cover of the latest edition of Scarlet?

I could have sworn this was the model going by the rather humourous name of Christian Bishop for Men At Play and UK Naked Men in recent months (samples below).

Having noted this very vaguely on the Slaves to Vanity Facebook page though I was contacted by PM in minutes by the model on the magazine cover  to say it wasn't him, but that his gay friends had already mentioned the similarity and could I remove my comment (which I did - he was all very pleasant about it).

So just saying  it's definitely not him, OK?

Glee - Sue Sylvester's "Vogue"

Sue's dream sequence "Vogue" routine from the second (Madonna-themed) episode of the concluding chunk of "Glee" series one episodes which  began screening in the USA last night (back here next Monday on E4 then the following Friday night on C4). Despite the TV Guide photo-session, only Kurt & Mercedes also feature with Sue in this  brilliantly reconstructed number.

The Attitude 2010 naked issue

Something to search out in your local newsagents - the May issue of "Attitude". Cover star is the rather delish Danny Young, one-time "Coronation Street" star and recent "Dancing On Ice" competitor (and I'd not be surprised if he turned up in Albert Square within a year)

PS Craig Dayyyyy-vid is the 'Active' cover star

"Radio Times" layout revamp this week

Yes, I know it might not be the cover you've got, but as STV isn't showing Joanna Lumley's Nile programme she's been unceremoniously dropped by "Radio Times" too. Don't know why they want to avoid embarrassing STV though.

Anyway, to the revamp, as the cover layout remains largely the same ...

Each day now has two whole preview pages, which go across the board on all platforms rather than sitting alongside their relevant listings. Useful if there's more stuff on one platform than another on a particular day, but it still retains some sub-indexing in the rightmost column.

The change most likely to rile - daytime (here defined as before 5pm) has been relegated literally to the margin, and the rather pointless re-iteration of the main Freeview channels has been dropped entirely. Pretty unchanged after that as far as I can see though the BBC One and Two share one page with the commercial channels sharing the opposite page.

Glad that the regional variations gets a bit more prominence for those that don't know what BBC Scotland and STV are editing from view.

The non-terrestrials now get six pages and these are the only two I'll be using as a Freeviewer.

After that are two pages of "satellite and cable", then "films and sport" with just their dedicated channels.

Completely new is this rundown of the Top 10 catch-up TV. Not sure about this yet, but I'm not able to make the most of iPlayer etc on my wi-fi allowance. Others may find it invaluable, if subjective.

Meat to Please You - David Jones (aka Adam Coussins) - ADULTS ONLY!

A little 'back to work' beauty ...

Making a nice change from all the overseas guys that MAP imports, here's a homegrown star stripping from business wear. Don't know the reason for the name change, especially since his surname is tattooed on his back.

Doctor Who - The Eleventh Hour - my review - 9/10

"14 years since fish custard!"

My over-riding impression after watching this episode is that "Doctor Who" is in the very safe hands of Smith and Moffat, and that we may even be at the dawn of a golden era.

We've got new TARDIS, new sonic, new titles, new logo and new music too. The titles aren't radically different from the previous ones, merely a slightly different representation of the vortex. I did notice that both the titles and new arrangement seem deliberately less portentious, almost knockabout as the TARDIS dodges forks of lightning against a real "boom-tish" version of the familiar theme.

I'm sure all of us harboured some level of doubt that the youngest ever actor to play the title role (someone born when the next youngest was the incumbent) could pull off the Doctor-ness convincingly. Matt Smith did it effortlessly and owned the screen in all his scenes, which is what the Doctor should do. As I've noted before, perhaps not here, Matt's not classically photogenic but comes over very attractively, as someone you'd be simultaneously comfortable with and excited by.

And Matt also has the comic timing and awkward physicality to play Steven Moffat's quirky humour. This was most notable in the food craving sequence early in the episode - a scene which gets better with each viewing but could have been a disaster if played wrong. And he is equally commanding when necessary, as he did standing up to the Atraxi on the hospital roof - something Tennant occasionally lapsed into obnoxious with. There's a sense that Moffat is moving the characterisation very slightly, but that remains to be seen I think.

To the episode itself. Though I think this is probably in the top 3 of new Doctor debut' stories, I've given it a less-than-perfect 9. There's one major reason for that - the special effects were 'special' in the derogatory sense of the word. and I hope they improve for the rest of this series. The true form of "Prisoner Zero' was suitably scary but really didn't look to be in the same room as anything else, and the Atraxi was bad in concept and realisation - a giant eyeball in a snowflake! It was as convincing as 70s CSO! I can cope with that level of effect in "The Sarah Jane Adventures" but not in the daddy show.

I'd also have a slight quibble that in a 65 minute episode a little more screen time and purpose could have been given to guest stars Annette Crosbie, Nina Wadia and Olivia Colman, thought the latter did get to be the villain briefly.

And some things were a bit rushed or unexplained such as Jeff and his gran's relationship to Amy (was his gran her Aunt?), what happened to Amy's parents and what year it was at any one time - I'm going for 1996, 2008 and 2010 and ignoring the 1990 date on Rory's ID card.

Amy was a completely new sort of companion - off the scale fiesty and unpredictable, though I'm slightly wary/worried of how she sees the Doctor. Her insisting on watching her 'raggedy Doctor' strip off struck me as a bit odd on second viewing. Nearest comparison I can get is Ace mixed with Donna.

In this though we also got Amelia, the young Amy, Have to say Caitlin Blackwood was every bit as good as if not better than her real-life cousin Karen Gillan, and even managed creepy when Prisoner Zero took her form. Moffat is very strong with giving children unusual roles of course ("are you my mummy?").

The other star of the show for me was director Adam Smith, the first of the completely new hands in that role this year where none of the directors have worked on the show before. He brought magic and colour and slight mischief to bear. He also has the honour of being the director on both the first broadcast episode as well as the first produced ones, which actually follow as episodes 4 and 5. The clips from them look assured as well, as they need to be for the return of the Weeping Angels and River Song.

On a more shallow note, I was very taken with Jeff (Tom Hopper) and notice I'm not the only one, though it is in fact the not so good looking Rory (Arthur Darvill) who we will be seeing more of this series, as he even gets a trip back in time in the TARDIS next month. But is it Rory that Amy was due to marry the next day?

So here's a gratuitous pic of the lovely Jeff with our hero ...
