Tom Brittney who plays the vicar detective caught my attention for obvious reasons but his is a good mystery show set in 1950's England- and their is gay subplot ....

James Norton did it for three seasons and he was equally attention-worthy. This past episode Tom spent the good part of a minute in only a towel. Way to go, Vicar.

Tom is a beauty- those eyes, those lips, that body- too bad he is not part of the gay subplot

The gay subplot has been drawn out for a number of seasons now, but I think that's part of the point, that in that era everything gay had to be so tentative, with no real hope of resolution in any way which didn't involve subterfuge and secrecy. Both Vicars have been quietly supportive, quiet not because they were ambivalent about the legitimacy of gay love but because discretion was the only thing which was fair to the person(s) involved. It's true that the show overlays a modern point of view on a historical time period, but it's still touching seeing it play out (and heartbreaking too).
