Trivia:
The role of Alexander was written for Phil Collinson, a good friend of writer and creator Russell T. Davies. However when Antony Cotton arrived for the audition, everyone agreed that he was better suited to the role. Collinson went on to be a producer, and was hired by Davies to produce "Doctor Who" (2005).See more »
Quotes:
Alexander:Right, shut your noise, bit of hush! Vince, sit down, it's time for the presents. And if anyone's got him a Jeff Stryker cock and balls you're getting booted out, that's so unoriginal.See more »

Engrossing drama and hilarious comedy combined, 8 February 2000
Author: Kathy-45 from Arcadia, California

I am a straight woman who was fortunate enough to see "Queer as Folk" at the Los Angeles Outfest. I found it absolutely the best television series I've ever seen, on a par with HBO's "Oz," only more explicit and weaving comedy into the mix. The characters are painstakingly developed, and will capture your interest immediately. We all know a Stuart (arrogant sex freak hiding inner doubts and insecurities), a Vince (sweet, self-effacing, afraid to ask for what he wants), and a Nathan (15, impossibly romantic and willful). Though these are the main players, there are also wonderful supporting roles, including Nathan's concerned and sympathetic mother, his best school chum (wise-beyond-her-years "fag-hag" Donna), and Keith's irrepressible parents. The heady excitement of clubbing is captured perfectly; it made me itch to go to discos again! The production is altogether a class act. It's a shame that we here in the States are so under the thumb of the "family values" hypocrites that we may never get a series of this quality. Call your friends in England for a copy of the video, go to your local gay/lesbian center, do whatever you have to do to see this.
