Charlie Brooker's Black Mirror

Season 1 (2011)

Channel 4 drama series written by Charlie Brooker which explores the role of technology in modern society, in particular the potential dark side of humanity's gadget addiction. Each of the episodes is a stand-alone piece and is set in a slightly different world. 'The National Anthem' follows the attempts of the British Prime Minister, Michael Callow (Rory Kinnear), to negotiate the release of a royal princess (Lydia Wilson), while faced with an outrageous ransom request and a titillated media. 'Fifteen Million Merits' is set in a grim, gadget-dominated world where the only chance of individual glory is a game show called Hot Shot, where contestants will be assessed by Judge Hope (Rupert Everett) and Judge Charity (Julia Davis). Finally, 'The Entire History of You' imagines a world in which it is possible to record your own memories and play them back at will. Toby Kebbell and Jodie Whittaker star.

Season 2 (2013)

Second mini-series of the Channel 4 drama written by Charlie Brooker which explores the role of technology in modern society in three stand-alone episodes. In 'Be Right Back', Martha (Hayley Atwell) connects with her recently deceased partner, Ash (Domhnall Gleeson), through a service which uses social media to clone him. But even as Martha becomes attached to the artificial Ash, she begins to realise that he cannot replace the real one. In 'White Bear', Victoria (Lenora Crichlow) wakes up to discover that she has lost her memory. When she goes outside she finds a number of people recording her on their phones and soon after she is chased by a masked gunman. Confused and frightened, she encounters Jem (Tuppence Middleton), who tells her that a transmitter known as White Bear is responsible for transforming the majority of the population into mindless voyeurs. Victoria joins Jem in her effort to destroy the transmitter but comes to learn that not everything is as it seems... In 'The Waldo Moment', Jamie (Daniel Rigby) is a depressed, struggling comedian who, through motion capture, interviews politicians as a cartoon bear called Waldo. As Waldo becomes increasingly popular, Jamie is convinced by TV producer Jack Napier (Jason Flemyng) to stand in the town's by-election against politicians Liam Monroe (Tobias Menzies) and Gwendolyn Harris (Chloe Pirrie). Despite his popularity with the public, Jamie ruffles one too many feathers which sends him on a downward spiral.
