Did Ben Whishaw's Character in "The Hour" Live or Die? We Will Never Know

By Dustin Rowles | Trade News | February 12, 2013 | Comments ()


This doesn't make any damn sense to me. BBC's The Hour, which also airs on BBC America, and is one of the best shows that you haven't been watching (FOR SHAME), has been axed by BBC, despite expectations that the series would air three seasons.

In fact, those expectations were so high that season two ended on a crushing, devastating cliffhanger, in which Freddie Lyon's life hung in the balance. My fear was that The Hour would ultimately kill off the character because of Whishaw's sudden popularity -- he's Q in Skyfall and was brilliant in Cloud Atlas. But Whishaw has had that choice taken away from him by the cancellation of the series, which will also mean less Romola Garai in our lives, and I don't like living in a world with less Romola Garai.


First "Psych," and now this? I am sad all over the place. Is it too early for watered-down whiskey?

Woody Allen has "so moved on" from his daughter's accusations and says he never even thinks about it. He equates her words about him to a bad review he won't read and comments on how wacky it is that Mia Farrow is his mother-in-law. He is the worst. (Celebitchy)

Not The Worst but still very gross: Leonardo DiCaprio and his Pussy Posse Wolf Pack were on the douche prowl in NYC. (Lainey)

Here are 5 under-the-radar shows. I had never even heard of the first two. (Uproxx)
