If you enjoy Brooker’s brand of wordy, sneering, supercilious, clever-clever diatribes — and I know I do — his family of “wipe” series here takes a new twist. The brief is simple: to look at the events of the week in politics, TV and the online world and mock mercilessly. In other words, it may pick up where what Brooker and others did on Channel 4’s ill-fated 10 O’Clock Live left off, but hopefully with less padding and more of the lovingly researched and ludicrous clips his BBC4 shows have. Here’s hoping.
New series. The writer and broadcaster offers a satirical look at the latest news from politics, the media and the internet, casting a critical eye over trends in TV, cinema, computer games and social media. Charlie will be joined in the studio each week by guests and there will be regular contributions from American comedian Doug Stanhope.
