Christopher And His Kind: Sign Of The Times

"Congratulations to Matilda Walter of London N1 for a potentially award-winning complaint to Radio Times about BBC2's bookish docudrama Christopher and His Kind. Instead of merely voicing the usual criticisms (Doctor Who having gay sex, a rerun of Cabaret without tunes, etc), she homed in on a central but overlooked issue: faced with a publicity still of 'semi-naked actors Matt Smith and Douglas Booth' sunbathing on lakeside decking, 'I couldn't take my eye off the photo. But the more I ogled, the more disappointed I became – Phillips decking screws used in a drama set before 1933?'"
