Black Mirror: The Waldo Moment – behind the scenes video

Watch a five minute clip featuring stars Daniel Rigby and Jason Flemyng discussing Charlie Brooker's upcoming political satire

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.
