Give The Hour more time to prove itself

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.
