Topless Review of 2016 (work in progress)
The Topless Review was originally an attempt to keep a record of all the celebrity uncoverings that
occur in Newspapers, Magazines, and on Television in the current year. However in more recent years coverage of Newspapers has fallen away due to a combination of reduced awareness of anything of relevance and seemingly less instances of what used to be a fairly frequent event. Magazines even more so.
Therefore it is only now the Television section that retains any concerted effort to be as comprehensive as possible.
Also see the TV & British Actresses pages for a comprehensive coverage of movies.
Symbols Used (entries added
since the last update will show the symbol in RED)
J definite topless shots with one or both breasts bare with nipple(s) visible. This includes nipple slips and see-through shots.
L technically topless but covered due to careful or fortuitous posing.
K a topless image that is a new one from a previously seen set or occasion (that I've not seen before). Unless it is only very recently after the initial appearance.
N Images that may have been doctored by magazines or turn out to be fakes, etc.
All dates are formatted in the UK style of dd/mm/yyyy
The Halcyon (ITV - ep1:02/01/2017) 8-part drama
(ep1) J Kara Tointon (Betsey Day) - rear nudity as she stands up in a bath in a mischievously brazen way in front of hotel owner Lord Lawrence Hamilton (Alex Jennings) whose bathroom he has caught her out using when he returns to his hotel suite - seen in close-up without her face in the shot (in preview press interviews she indicated she did the scene herself).
Silent Witness (BBC1 - 09/01/2017)
series 20, story 2: Discovery, part 1 of 2
J Natalie Lester (Tina Lunt) - topless laying dead on a mortuary table as Dr Thomas Chamberlain (Richard Lintern) begins her postmortem examination with an external examination, with investigating officer DS Maureen Steele (Saskia Reeves) in attendance. (Her role was fairly minor, albeit credited - she is seen alive in a flashback in part 2 although no dialogue was involved).
J Nathalie Buscombe (Lucy Chatham) - topless as her naked body is lifted out of a river by two policemen - seen from an elevated medium distance - then full frontal nudity from an elevated longer distance laying on a tarpaulin as her body is checked for identifying features (could be a dummy or a stunt woman) • topless laying dead on a mortuary table as Dr Nikki Alexander (Emilia Fox) begins her postmortem examination with an external examination, with investigating officer DCI Andy Steemson (Darren Morfitt) in attendance - the examination continues after her head has been shaven bald so Nikki can check a head wound - then continuing as Nikki peels her neck skin up over her face as Nikki continues her detailed examination to determine the exact cause of death - later topless on the mortuary table again as Nikki follows up another line of enquiry to try and find vital clues to where she was killed. (It is hard to tell if a dummy is used for any/all/some of the shots and whether it was the actress with clever prosthetics or a realistic dummy - and therefore how much (if any) of the nudity seen is the real actress - she had a small to medium speaking role in part one before her character died, and had a lesser role in part two in a brief flashback).
SS-GB (BBC1 - ep1:19/02/2017)
(ep1) J Maeve Dermody (Sylvia Manning) - briefly topless in a hotel bed as she reaches over to fetch an ashtray after sleeping with her boss Douglas Archer (Sam Riley).
(ep1) J Uncredited - her left nipple is very briefly seen as her bed partner General Fritz Kellermann sits up attentively when his superior comes onto the phone line. NOTE: Many websites incorrectly identified this uncredited non-speaking extra as being Susannah Wise. Presumably because Susannah Wise was credited as "prostitute" for an earlier scene in which she is seen outdoors as a streetwalker talking to the two detectives outdoors as they arrive at a murder scene. The woman in the bed scene was a different prostitute.
Prime Suspect 1973 (ITV - ep1:02/03/2017)
J Arabella Larssen (Julie-Ann Collins) - topless and rear nudity laying dead on a mortuary table as pathologist professor Dean Martin (Ian Beattie) talks attending officers DI Len Bradfield (Sam Reid) and probationary WPC Jane Tennison (Stefanie Martini) through his preliminary findings before beginning the postmortem.
