Now joined by the new eccentric Head of News, Randall Brown (Peter Capaldi, The Thick of It), the sequel - set in late 1957 - will see the personal meet the professional as the characters become deeply embroiled in cover-ups, corruption, love affairs, sexual intrigues and the resurgence of Mosley's fascism. Welcome to the end of the '50s ... The Hour premieres Wednesday, November 28, 9:00pm ET/PT as part of BBC AMERICA's Dramaville. Twitter: #TheHour
