If you’re champing at the bit for more Black Mirror after last night’s nightmarish White Bear, here’s a behind-the-scenes featurette about next week’s episode to tide you over.

Season finale The Waldo Moment is a political satire about failed comedian Jamie, played by Eric & Ernie star Daniel Rigby (who you may also recognise from the current BT Broadband ads). Jamie voices an acerbic animated bear, Waldo, who interviews real-life politicians on a topical TV comedy show.

When the bear’s popularity with viewers starts mushrooming, the show’s bosses hit on the idea of having him stand as a candidate in an upcoming by-election and Jamie's life quickly spirals out of control.

The five-minute clip features Rigby and co-stars Jason Flemyng and Michael Shaeffer talking about the episode, their characters and the concepts that Black Mirror explores.

Black Mirror: The Waldo Moment will air on Monday 23 February at 10pm on Channel 4.
