BBC 2 newsroom drama The Hour will not return for a third series.

The acclaimed series starred Romola Garai, Dominic West and Ben Whishaw as journalists working on a fictitious weekly news programme for the BBC in the late 1950s.

A spokesperson for the BBC said "We loved the show but have to make hard choices to bring new shows through."

Chief Executive of producers Kudos Film and Television Jane Featherstone said she was "sad and disappointed" by the decision.
