Why do British TV series such as Abi Morgan's 1950s drama never allow characters any breathing space? By Ben Walsh

Tales From The Water Cooler: Mad Men range is not a good idea

One of the things that first drew viewers to Mad Men – before Don Draper's existential angst, Roger Sterling's dubious wit or Joan Holloway's "hillsides" (copyright: Roger Sterling) – was the clothes. The hit US drama, now approaching its fifth series, remains a long-overdue reminder that our grandparents once dressed pretty darn sharp, too. So there's a crushing inevitability to the news that its costume designer, Janie Bryant, has teamed up with Banana Republic to produce an "official Mad Men clothing range".

DVD: The Hour (15)

There's been a fair bit of low-level grumbling and sniping about Abi Morgan's Fifties-set drama, set in a bustling BBC TV newsroom. Touted, wrongly, as a "British Mad Men", The Hour bears much more resemblance to Paul Abbott's gripping political thriller State of Play. And it has been, by a country mile, the most enjoyable TV drama series this year.
