The Hour

Sandwiched in between all the reality shows, at last a decent original drama on the BBC. And if you haven't seen it – no it isn't ‘Mad Men’ for the UK, granted it is set in the fifties, but personally I'm finding it much more engaging. I think where American dramas lose me is that if a series is successful they won't draw a line under it. More and more series are churned out until you can't remember what you found appealing in the first series. Here we either have no money,no business acumen or greater artistic integrity – take your pick – but invariably the audience is left clamouring for more, with nothing forthcoming after one series.
