A few beautiful words
A small disagreement has arisen over the casting for the creakingly long-running ITV crime series, Midsomer Murders. The essence of it that the series, which is set in a rural idyll of middle-class gentility “somewhere in England”, naturally enough employs an all-white cast. The lead actor is being changed, and the series sexed up. But the skin colour of the actors remains all too white.
Well, the executive producer Brian True-May, 65, was interviewed by Radio Times and duly challenged. “We just don’t have ethnic minorities involved. Because it wouldn’t be the English village with them. It just wouldn’t work ... I’m trying to make something that appeals to a certain audience, which seems to succeed. And I don’t want to change it.”
The result has been a minor media frenzy, and the production company, All3Media, has rushed to distance itself from criticism by suspending True-May. The Daily Mail readership is probably closer to the viewer profile for Midsomer Murders than any other English rag, and its reader-vote on whether True-May should have been suspended records a 91% “No”. But it was one reader comment posted at 1.00 am tonight on the thread to Cristina Odone’s piece at the Telegraph that really caught my eye. It is by “Henbane”, and here it is:
