The suspension of the kiss is always the thing that’s most exciting…I played with that not happening, but because we had reached that peak in series one — Was he ever going to express his feelings for her?
RIP The Hour.  Haven’t posted it here (possibly because I was busy, probably because I was in denial), but by now everyone’s heard that BBC has canceled The Hour.  Not going to lie, it’s not a shocker.  I’m a pretty firm believer in the fact that most hits are manufactured, and BBC did next to NOTHING to promote the series, gain an audience, and make it a hit.
So I’m celebrating its brief run with some of my favorite images from the show.  Also, if you want to show BBC that there is, indeed, an audience for this series, you can sign this petition here.  We can all dream, right?

Further technological experiments but fingers crossed this is the Peter Capaldi specific excerpt from the Hour ‘Behind The Scenes’ feature.

THE HOUR Returns All New NOV 28 BBC AMERICA (by BBCAmericaTV)

This is almost the same trailer they’re showing on the channel with a few things missing. Still, it’s new so HERE YA GO!

Whishaw has a whimsical, meandering way of talking, and a tendency to start stories that don’t go anywhere. (On clothes: “I once had a pair of jeans I really liked. I loved them, they were perfect! And then they fell apart and, um, well I didn’t buy another pair.”) His ideal day off, he says, would be wandering around the markets and flower markets in east London, where he lives. “I like to sort of drift about.”

A great feature on The Hour in The Guardian

Also check out Cult Box’s preview for The Hour’s second series.  It’s coommmiiinnng!! (finally)

The Hour Series 2 Press Materials

BBC America has released some press materials for series 2 of The Hour.  I haven’t seen a UK air date yet, but BBC America has November 2012 as a date for US folks!  Also, last week some folks from the production, including Abi Morgan, Dominic West, and Romola Garai took part in the TCA press work introducing the second series, see here and here.

BBC America’s got an overview, a few episode synopses, and then a bunch of old interviews from last year, so not much new. 

But oh, they casually drop this bomb (spoilers, I guess; though it’s a press release, so not really?):

"Bel bristles as newlyweds, Freddie and Camille steal the limelight at a party hosted by Hector and Marnie."

So who the hell is Camille??!  Don’t think we’ve seen her at all yet.  I haven’t turned up any information on this character other than the fact that she’s part of a racially-motivated attack.  Guess we’ll have to wait and see!

UPDATE: Just kidding, apparently you can’t embed this one, so go watch it here.
