BBC AMERICA heats up with new and returning series this winter!
Don't miss all new episodes of THE HOUR, plus the premieres of the DOCTOR WHO CHRISTMAS SPECIAL, RIPPER STREET, WILD THINGS WITH DOMINIC MONAGHAN and SPIES OF WARSAW, only on BBC America.
*** New Episodes Return Wednesday Nov 28 at 9/8c ***
From Emmy®-nominated writer and creator ABI MORGAN (The Iron Lady, Shame), the sequel sees the return of the highly competitive, sharp-witted and passionate news trio of Freddie (BEN WHISHAW, Skyfall, Cloud Atlas), Bel (ROMOLA GARAI, The Crimson Petal and the White) and Hector (DOMINIC WEST, The Wire) -- still striving to broadcast stories they believe in. Now joined by the new eccentric Head of News, Randall Brown (PETER CAPALDI, The Thick of It), the sequel -- set in late 1957 -- will see the personal meet the professional as the characters become deeply embroiled in cover-ups, corruption, love affairs, sexual intrigues and the resurgence of Mosley's fascism. Welcome to the end of the '50s...
DOCTOR WHO Christmas Special

Haunted by the failure to catch London's most notorious killer Jack the Ripper, the drama centers on the notorious H Division -- the toughest police district in the East End -- headed by Inspector Edmund Reid (MATTHEW MACFADYEN, MI-5, Pride and Prejudice).
