Damian Lewis covers Esquire's October issue

Esquire's October Issue is a TV special, celebrating the extraordinary age of golden television currently gracing our screens. On the cover is Homeland's Damian Lewis, returning this autumn as former prisoner of war (and wanted terrorist) Nicholas Brody. He discusses his iconic role as America's most problematic leading man – so renowned, his character was even name-checked by Jay-Z on his new album.

Elsewhere, Simon Cowell discusses the life lessons he's learned; Game Of Thrones' Natalie Dormer on why she won't be turning her back on the small screen (despite her burgeoning movie career) and the men of Downton Abbey lose the period pieces and show off Autumn's up-to-the-minute leather and shearling.

Oh and have you heard of a show called Breaking Bad? Vince Gilligan, the polite, unassuming, well-adjusted creator talks to Esquire about how he created Walter White, the most magnificently twisted anti-hero to ever exist.
