Cheaping stars, the stock shot way


Talking of the Doctor Who Christmas special, one of the guest stars is Welsh warbler Katherine Jenkins. She's a successful quasi-classical singer and generally regarded as, uh, not ugly.

Which made this photo of her, which appeared above The Telegraph's My Perfect Weekend piece about her, all the more surprising because, frankly, she looks like every other actress/model/singer whatever. Her hair looks like a wig, for goodness' sake. It's below the standard of photography I expect from The Telegraph – and sure enough, it's a stock shot.
