Actress Alexandra Moen has revealed the BBC drama series Hotel Babylon has been axed by the corporation.
Actress Alexandra Moen has revealed that Hotel Babylon won’t be returning for another series as it has been axed by the BBC. The actress revealed the shows fate during an interview with SFX magazine in which she was discussing her forthcoming return to Doctor Who as Lucy Saxon. When asked about the fate of the glitzy BBC drama Moen revealed it wouldn’t be coming back.
“No there is not another series. It has been axed. It’s a real shame isn’t it?” Alexandra Moen in SFX
The actress played PR Manager Emily James since the show’s third season. Hotel Babylon was loosely based on the book by Imogen Edwards-Jones who also penned Fashion Babylon which is currently being developed by the corporation as another drama series. Tazmin Outhwaite and Max Beasley were amongst the original cast of the drama but Outwaite left at the end of the second season while Beasley left after the third season but briefly returned during the show’s recent fourth year.
Over the four seasons a wealth of guest-stars have appeared in the glitzy drama such as Bonnie Langford, John Barrowman, Susie Amy, Anthony Head, Chris Moyles, Danny Dyer, Kacey Ainsworth, Paula Abdul, Joan Collins and Honor Blackman. The fourth season struggled in the ratings with less than four million viewers tuning in which may be the reason behind the BBC not renewing the drama for a fifth year. ATV News contacted the BBC regarding the show’s axe but the corporation had not replied by the time of publication.
