Dominic West - Dominic West's Time On The Hour Is Up As Show Is Scrapped

Dominic West and Ben Whishaw's British drama The Hour has been axed by Tv bosses in the U.K.

The Bbc show, set in a 1950s newsroom, was nominated for a Best Mini-Series or Tv Movie Golden Globe earlier this year (13), but that wasn't enough to save the series - and executives have decided not to bring the drama back for a third season.

A representative for the network says, "We loved the show but have to make hard choices to bring new shows through."

West won't be away from the Bbc for long - he's set to play Richard Burton alongside Helena Bonham Carter's Elizabeth Taylor in an upcoming Tv movie about the fiery pair later this year (13).
