Charlie Brooker’s fables of the near future return. It was one of the most disturbing and oddly hilarious dramas of last year, but repeating the trick is harder. Shock value in this new instalment comes from the premise that we might soon be able to re-create a dead loved one using their online history.
When a tragic accident robs Martha (Hayley Atwell) of her boyfriend Ash, she is tempted to try a cutting-edge internet service — and a virtual Ash returns to her in an unsettling parable about grief. It’s an intriguing idea, chillingly realised.
Darkly satirical drama by Charlie Brooker, the first of three. Martha and Ash relocate to a remote cottage, but the following day he is killed while returning the hire van. At the funeral, Martha's friend Sarah tells her about a service that lets people stay in touch with the deceased - by using all of his past social media profiles, a new `Ash' can be created. Hayley Atwell, Domhnall Gleeson and Sinead Matthews star.
