‘The Hour’: Series 2 Episode 2 teasers

The second series of BBC Two’s 1950s newsroom drama The Hour continues next week and Hector and Marnie host a gathering of friends at their apartment. Racial tension is on the rise across London, a response to the influx of immigrants from the Commonwealth who bring new culture to Britain’s streets, but also division.

Series 2 Episode 2 airs at 9pm on Wednesday 21 November 2012 on BBC Two. To whet your appetite, here are ten teasing lines of dialogue from the episode…

» ‘Cocktail dress? Have I missed the party?’

» ‘It’s ridiculous. Two sane, beautiful women wasted on you! Aren’t you ashamed?’

» ‘A man who folds his own napkins and you don’t keep track of your own investments?’

» ‘Hatred festers if it is ignored.’

» ‘You wouldn’t believe what some of these important men get up to in their private time.’

» ‘The good do bad things, and the bad are sometimes kind to their mothers.’

» ‘I’ll come in today. I will do your interview.’

» ‘You’re giving airtime to a fascist?’

» ‘Head of News and no idea what news I’m head of?’

» ‘You don’t love me!  You love your stupid Hour!’
