* ScrewedByTheNetwork: [[http://www.radiotimes.com/news/2013-02-12/the-hour-axed-by-bbc2 Cancelled]] by Creator/{{BBC}}2, citing a lack of resources for new shows, despite ending series 2 with the cliffhanger to end all cliffhangers, prompting viewers to [[http://cosmiccoz.tumblr.com/post/43060206933/save-the-hour-petition-contact-links protest]] and launch [[http://www.change.org/en-GB/petitions/the-bbc-please-commission-a-third-series-of-the-hour-savethehour a petition at Change.org]].
* SendingStuffToSaveTheShow: Fans organized a letter writing campaign sent to the BBC (or rather postcard writing, imitating postcards sent by Freddie to Bel between series 1 and 2) to protest the show's cancellation. They also have an online petition, a #savethehour twitter tag, a charity drive in the name of the cause, and have sent production company Kudos a yellow desk lamp having been informed that the BBC can't accept gifts.
