CUFFS

Earlier this year, the final bell rang at disaster-prone comprehensive Waterloo Road after ten years of classroom-centric drama. It was sad news for those of us who secretly enjoyed vicariously reliving our schooldays. But on the other hand, it freed up valuable airtime for new pre-watershed drama on BBC1.

Which is where Cuffs comes in – created by Prisoners’ Wives and Secret Diary of a Call Girl writer Julie Gearey, it follows a group of frontline police officers in Brighton, handling everything from drug raids to people scrapping over deck chairs on the shingle.

While its channel mates EastEnders and Holby City have made great strides in increasing the visibility of gay characters during family viewing hours, Cuffs goes one better and puts them at the heart of the show right from the beginning – like rookie PC Jake Vickers, played by 22-year-old newcomer Jacob Ifan, whose first day on the job is covered in the opening episode.

About Gay Times

Two things: it’s the October issue. October, you say? Better start on that Christmas list then! Second: it’s been 20 years since Hollyoaks launched on UK TV. Where has the time gone you ask? We’re not sure either but to celebrate the passing of this year (and the last twenty), we’ve pulled off a blinder and got you not one, two or even three Hollyoaks hotties but a quartet of soapland studs. You’ll instantly recognize both Kieron Richardson and James Sutton – both veterans of GT - having racked up no less than 3 covers and countless in-mag appearance between them; for good reason. Let us also introduce Parry Glasspool and Ross Adams for those of you who aren't yet familiar. Ross is a proper gent in real life but since hitting our screens back in April his character - Scott Drinkwell – has already helped kidnap a baby, lied about his HIV status and tried to come between lovebirds Ste and John Paul (played by Kieron and James). Tsk tsk. We’d say it’s time to stop and catch your breath but before you come up for air, take note: Parry Glasspool. Page 42. GT October. S’all we are saying. Also in this issue – wait there’s more? Yep… We met up with Dannii Minogue backstage before her gig at this year’s Manchester Pride for an exclusive chat. Exclusive means you won’t find it anywhere else, so we’ll leave this here and let you read the full interview, only in this month’s GT. And...
