Good Morning, Billy

Well this one will certainly wake us up and send us into the weekend with a "smile" upon our "faces" I think -- our favorite new TV writer Tom Rob Smith (he is the man behind Ben Whishaw's London Spy as well as The Assassination of Gianni Versace) has a show airing on the BBC right now that is called MotherFatherSon and which stars Dunkirk twink and MNPP fave Billy Howle...

... (I suppose at some point I'm going to have to stop calling these thirtysomethings "twinks" but as a brand it still makes me laugh so that time's not yet) as a big deal newspaper dude who's the son of a real big important dude (played by Richard Gere). Anyway there've been all these headlines in the UK papers in the past 24 hours about the show having a "chilling" and "cuckoo" sex scene which yeah, sure, it's those things, but it's also just a long slow build to Billy Howle stripping naked and standing there proudly for us, too. Don't believe me? Hit the jump, obviously...

I very much want to see this show.
Any UKers watching?

Just recently got through watching Glue and while the ending left me floored I think that Billy's character James would eventually find happiness. Callum Turner's character Eli I hope ended up hanging himself in a cell for all of the damage that he caused.
