The Englishman's cover reveal has been announced on Twitter! It's really odd to see my name appear there, and in connection with a book that I have written. O-d-d.
What is also odd is that the moment a girl posts a few pictures of a few nekkid men on her website, her friends start screeching in protest. "Harrison Ford should be on there, as John Book in Witness!" - Yes, but Harrison Ford isn't English, and let's face it, he is getting on a bit, even though he was so scrumptious in Witness." Another friend wanted me to take down the picture of Hugh Laurie, "because I mean, really, he isn't - I mean, Hugh Laurie?" Yes, Hugh Laurie, the world's sexiest doctor! And incidentally, some of us gurrrls, like Emma Thompson and Yours Truly, knew he was hot well before he ever auditioned for House. Did you never see Maybe Baybe? Although Greg House's curmudgeonliness makes him even hotter, no doubt about that. Oh, and a third friend thinks that the photo of Ralph Fiennes is naff. It's the hound, I think. The thing is, there aren't very many pictures of 'Rafe' in the buff out there. And I like the dog. And the bod. And anyway, it's my novel!

So there was a mini-kerfuffle about The Sexiest Englishmen of Our Time. Wanna join in?

Can we add Benedict Cumberbatch to that list. That one's for my daughter. For me...I'll take Jack Davenport, or as I like to call him Commodore Norrington. ;)

Andrew Lincoln gets my vote. I've had a crush since "Love Actually". Oh, and Tom Hardy (ROWR!). Idris Elba. Lenny James. Ah hell--I should just move across the pond!

I see we have a generation-gap thing going on here ;-) Daughters are welcome to the Cumberbatch and the Lincoln! Lenny Henry over here, please. Oh, and I forgot Colin "The Shirt" Firth. Or better still: Colin "The Single Man" Firth.
