I raised an unimpressed eyebrow at this Mr Martin, I can tell you. While he no doubt looks the part, having Hollyoaks on one's CV is not something I would take as positive; we produce some pretty dire tv shows here but Hollyoaks is right up there (or down there) with the worst. It's a show of morons, by morons, for morons. I can honestly say that I've never seen good acting, or even acceptable acting, in that show. But as I've not seen too much of it, I can only hope this guy is an exception and that HBO know what they're doing.
