The most underrated of British television shows: The Hour. Starring Skyfall’s Ben Whishaw, alongside The Wire’s Dominic West and Atonement’s Romola Garai, it's a seamless mix of drama, espionage, and suspense. Also, it’s set in late 1950s Britain, which just makes everything better.

Following a group of journalists producing a news magazine, The Hour focuses on their investigative journalism efforts, mostly revolved around major historical events. The show is packed with consistently great performances from its gigantic cast, not only from the aforementioned Whishaw, West, and Garai, but also co-stars Oona Chaplin, Peter Capaldi and Anna Chancellor.

After two seasons, the series was cancelled. Injustice!
