BBC's 'The Hour' Cancelled; No Third Series Planned

Sad news for fans of 50's current-affairs drama 'The Hour'. 

The Ben Whishaw fronted program has been cancelled by BBC 2 after just two series. There are no plans for a third.

The official word:
"We loved the show but have to make hard choices to bring new shows through."

Despite awards and accolades and love from critics, 'The Hour' struggled in its second series to maintain an audience. The final episode notched up an overnight rating of just 1.17 million viewers in December 2012, down considerably on the 2.99 million who watched the program's debut the previous year.
