From a great Guardian article about the newspapers' Book of the Year lists-type articles:

The staid Sunday Telegraph gives each of its 50 choosers a mugshot. It's a scary take on Britain's great and good: old, bespectacled, universally white and likely to be propping their heads on one raised, Rodinesque finger. The chummy Sunday Times has six of its critics (old, bespectacled, etc), red wine in hand, around a faux-Christmas roaring fire. The dinner party from hell.
