Summary Black Mirror is a new austere, darkly comic series of three different dramas set in various dystopian versions of future reality. Over the last ten years, technology has transformed almost every aspect of society before anyone has stopped to question it. In every home, on every desk, in every person's palm is a plasma screen, a monitor, a smartphone - a black mirror of our 21st Century existence. A twisted parable for the Twitter age, Black Mirror taps into our collective unease about the modern world. These three stand-alone dramas are sharp, suspenseful, satirical tales that are equal parts clever, shocking and disturbing.The first episode is a political thriller in which fictional Prime Minister Michael Callow faces a huge and shocking dilemma when Princess Susannah, a much-loved member of the Royal Family, is kidnapped. The sole ransom demand is for the Prime Minister to have sex with a pig live on television. Stars Rory Kinnear, Lindsay Duncan and Lydia Wilson.
