Rejoining The Hour a year on in 1957, the team are still striving to broadcast the stories they believe in, grappling with the disturbing threat of the Cold War and a country in the grip of unsettling, rapid change. Bel (Romola Garai) is still single and determined not to get involved with another married man, but finds herself taking on her adversary Bill Kendall (Tom Burke), an ITV producer whose magnetic charm she can't help but find irresistible. Hector (Dominic West) has risen to the status of a national celebrity and, drawn into the seductive glamour of Soho nightclub El Paradis, falls under the spell of the beautiful and seductive Kiki (Hannah Tointon). No longer happy at The Hour under Randall's (Peter Capaldi) new regime, he is tempted by offers from ITV, but when a night at the club goes badly wrong, scandal threatens and Hector must try and stop a news story that could destroy his marriage and his career. Investigative reporter Freddie (Ben Whishaw) makes an unexpected return to uncover and tackle police corruption within the world of Soho crime and vice.

I absolutely love this series. However the delay in providing the next episode is just unacceptable.
Aaron Sorkin's 'The Newsroom' with Mad Men's style
Easily the best series on British TV, showing an era famed for its excitement and courtesies while exposing the dark sides of racism and puritanical morality rose-tinted glasses tend to overlook. Get the first series, get this series and you won't regret it.
Where is ep 5?
And ep 6?
Itunes! Get a move on please!
