We've been teased with snippets and photo's as part of the BBC's summer drama promotions but a full-blown trailer for The Hour appeared this week to coincide with the announcement that it is to begin airing the week beginning July 16.
It seems like such a long time ago that I saw a preview of the first episode but I'm not sure the trailer really does it justice. The opening clip with Ben Whishaw looking at the camera is how the episode starts and having seen it on a big screen, I'll never erase that image from my mind.
Of course the cast are in full promotion mode and interviews are starting to appear. The Guardian published an interview with Mr W this week in which he is candid about his dislike of interviews and how his family worry about him. What a delicate soul he is.
