BBC's DANCING ON THE EDGE 2-Night Premiere, Ratings HoldThe new five-part BBC2 period drama series DANCING ON The Edge premiered this week, kicking off with a splashy two-hour premiere, with a second episode following it up to generally strong reviews and holding generally strong in the ratings (1.84m/8%). The 1930s-set, music-heavy jazz age series stars Chiwetel Ejiofor, John Goodman, Matthew Goode and Janet Montgomery and was created by Stephen Poliakoff.

Set in London, the series juxtaposes the rough and tumble world of nightclubs and its denizens with the artistocratic heirarchy and how the two interact in the ever-changing world of the 1930s. The remaining three episodes are scheduled to run over the next few weeks, with Episode 3 airing on January 11 in the UK. A second season has not yet been confirmed.

BBC2 bills the series: "An explosive 1930s drama following a jazz band in London at a time of huge change."
