Product description

Product Description

All eight episodes from the second season of the BBC drama series set in the luxury five-star hotel industry, a place where money not only talks but can buy you just about anything you desire. Behind the 'Staff Only' doors we meet glamorous General Manager Rebecca (Tamsin Outhwaite) who is excellent at running a business but can't stop her marriage crumbling; Tony (Dexter Fletcher) the concierge who can get you anything, from anywhere; beautiful receptionist Anna (Emma Pierson) with an eye for a wealthy and eligible guest; Head of Housekeeping Jackie (Natalie Mendoza), whose chambermaids have seen it all; and Charlie (Max Beesley), on the way up but with a shady past that could see him crash down even faster. As self-indulgent rock stars, foreign millionaires, hotel inspectors, long-stay eccentrics, high-class hookers and competition winners fill the luxury suites, these are the staff who drive their rollercoaster of hedonism and excess around the clock - always with the utmost discretion.


Series two of Hotel Babylon picks up and quickly adopts the style of the popular preceding season. Once again following the things you never see at a luxury hotel--along with what the staff get up to when you’re not looking--it’s hardly classic television, but you can’t deny its irresistible mix of entertainment.

So, with a cast led by Tamzin Outhwaite and Max Beesley, and with a few surprising star guests, Hotel Babylon soon gets down to business. Across this second series there’s the arrival of a Premiership football team, for instance, along with a bit of politics and a few gangsters too. All of these sit side-by-side with the antics of the staff themselves, who aren’t short of a few scandals to keep the entertainment factor powering along.

What sets Hotel Babylon aside from many of the shows that seem to quickly come and go is the sheer sense of fun. It’s an ideal show to switch on and relax to, rarely requiring you to engage your brain, but not falling short when it comes to outright enjoyment.

Based around the book by Imogen Edwards-Jones, Hotel Babylon enjoys good performances, zippy direction and plenty going on. And, crucially, it works as a happily diverting piece of television, with a giddy sense of soap opera about it. --Jon Foster
