As The Hour begins it is 1956 and Freddie Lyon and Bel Rowley are reporters working on the saccharine filled newsreels for the BBC at Alexandra Palace but when they hear that producer Clarence Fendley is looking for a team for his new current affairs show The Hour to be made at Lime Grove they realise it is the opportunity they have been waiting for. Meanwhile whilst reporting from the engagement party of a young debutante Freddie realises he knows the girl as a former childhood friend what he doesn’t know though is that she will be the catalyst to a murder investigation that will take him into a murky world of skull duggery and political cover ups.

Uunjust to say that it is yet another British period drama... for what it actually is Drama at its very best! If it was a US network's show, it would've swept golden globes on all categories in consecutive years...its even better than Mad Men on accounts of character development, electrifying acting performances by legendary actors, especially Whishaw and Garai, and better written dialogues.. In fact the Hour, makes you want to take notes while watching. If I could be so bold, it is a Crime on BBC's behalf Not To Renew a third season to this masterpiece, especially considering some of the crappy shows that we see running up to their 6th seasons on BBC. Having been a bingewatcher over 30 yrs, I still cant shakeoff that trembling sensation that I ever experienced not only while watching 2nd season finale, but after and even still whenever I remember...after 4 yrs.Ia'm still smitten, for it is real

The Hour is a slick take on 1950's London, revolving around Bel and Freddie, and their experiences at the fictional BBC show 'The Hour' during several key moments in politics and world affairs during the 1950's. The show oozes style, and as a period piece works extremely well, straying into political commentary and love triangles at certain points, drawing you into each strand of the story. The three principal roles are acted by equally extraordinary talents, Romola Garai, Ben Whishaw and Dominic West. If you like period pieces, you'll love this, but there is also a wider appeal to it. Even if you just enjoy watching how relationships are made, broken and fixed, you'll be absolutely hooked.
