Bugger.

One of my favourite comic actors, Chris Langham, has been charged with 15 counts of making indecent images of children today. It'll be fascinating to see how the media treat him - professionally, he's at the peak of his career, with armfuls of awards and plaudits for The Thick of It and Help - and he's certainly no panto villain-esque Gary Glitter figure.

this was indeed a shocker. With Gary Glitter there was always the whiff of being a sex offender about him, but this was entirely un-expected.

I seem to remember hearing about this some time ago - perhaps it was that the police were investigating rather than had charged Langham.

I know what you mean, though :-(

Yeah, they originally arrested him last November, then bailed him. The Meeja rumour mill suggests that it was either a cock-up or a leak that the 'child porn' bit of the arrest got mentioned - apparently it was only meant to mention 'internet offences'.

Anyway, this is phase 2 - he's up before the beak one day this week, and presumably will be charged and sent on to the Crown Court for trial.
