"I love those characters and I'm really excited to create more characters, so fundamentally, I'd love to see it develop and grow," Morgan told Assignment X.

Series star Romola Garai (Bel Rowley) previously told Digital Spy that any potential third series of The Hour would depend on the viewer response to series two.

"If [viewers] don't turn it on, then you have to be honest with yourself and go, 'OK, let's move on' - but I'd love to feel there's still life in it," Morgan explained.

She continued: "I've got a lot more stories I want to tell. There are loads more years of periods of history I want to get into, so yeah, I'd love to be in the '60s."

The Hour - which also stars Dominic West and Ben Whishaw - returned to figures of 1.68m earlier this month. Series two's fourth episode airs this Wednesday (December 5).
