DIANNE BUT­LER OUT OF THE BOX

Herald Sun - Switched On - - Gadgets - THE HOUR ABC1, 9pm

SEA­SON two and the writ­ers seem to have got a grip and turned the fo­cus in­wards, where it al­ways should’ve been, on the main characters. Es­pe­cially The Hour’s pre­sen­ter Hec­tor Mad­den (Do­minic West) who’s gone off the rails some­what and is hang­ing out all the time at a club in Soho and get­ting his photo taken. Hard to care about too much though, when it’s 1957 and the government’s get­ting ev­ery­one in a flap about the bomb. Of course, the real crime is much closer to home. But don’t ex­am­ine the plot too closely. Just en­joy be­ing al­lowed to smoke at your desk.
