Equal billing

What an interesting story (21 October) concerning the filming of the TV series Outlander in Scotland. I feel sure that this will bring economic benefits to Perthshire and show Doune Castle in a picturesque fashion.

I was disappointed that while lead actress Caitriona Balfe merited a half-page, three-quarter length photo, in a strappy mini-dress, lead actor Sam Heughan was afforded only a tiny inset photograph, cropped to head and shoulders, wearing a shirt and jacket.

Surely both performers should be treated equally – or perhaps there were no shots of Mr Heughan in a skin-tight muscle-shirt available?
