Black Mirror

Series 1 - 3. Black Mirror: The Entire History of You

Review by:
David Butcher

Imagine if memories weren’t foggy, unreliable things. Imagine if your every moment was logged by a little device implanted behind your ear and wired into your brain. Imagine if you could then view each day, each scene of your life at will and pore over it to the point of obsession. Jesse Armstrong has imagined just that in loving detail for the third of
Channel 4’s techno-fables.

A sick and sinuous story unfolds of a young lawyer who has an unsatisfactory appraisal meeting, then goes to a dinner where his wife is meeting old friends. Something in her body language bothers him and as he examines and re-examines it, he stirs up a storm of jealousy that can’t end well.

About this programme

3/3. Horror, written by Peep Show co-creator Jesse Armstrong, set in a near-future where memory implants record everything people see, do and hear. However, though this technological advance means no-one need ever forget a face again, it also has some very worrying drawbacks. Starring Toby Kebbell, Jodie Whittaker and Tom Cullen. Last in the series.
