As casts go they don’t come much more impressive than this with sweetheart Ben Whishaw, The Wire’s Dominic West and Romola Garai, who was brilliant in Atonement and as Sugar in The Crimson Petal and the White. And that’s pretty much all you need to know. They’re all in The Hour, a quality BBC2 drama set in the cut-throat world of broadcast journalism back in the glory days of the ’50s when Alexandra Palace was where it was at. The producers are saying, ‘Please don’t call it the British Mad Men’ quite a lot, which means they probably want you to think of it as the British Mad Men. Should be worth a watch. It’s on BBC2 on Tuesday 19th at 9pm.
