If you loved Dominic West in the US drama The Wire, we suggest you tune into The Hour, a new BBC drama which takes viewers back to 1950s London amid the launch of a topical news programme.

Joining West on The Hour is Ramola Garai (who you may have seen in Atonement) and Ben Whishaw (of Criminal Justice and Bright Star). The combination of these three main actors is one of the most exciting casts for a British TV series in years, and we can’t wait to tune in… especially if Mad Men’s anything to go by.

Other supporting actors in The Hour include Time Pigott-Smith, Juliet Stevensen, Anton Lesser, Anna Chancellor, Julian Rhind-Tutt, and Oona Chaplin (who plays Hector’s wife).

BAFTA award-winning writer Abi Morgan is the mastermind behind The Hour; he has also written Sex Traffic and White Girl. The series premieres soon on BBC 2!
