Humans series 2: Watch a touching new scene from episode 2

Gemma Chan’s Mia meets a woman with dementia in an exclusive clip from the upcoming edition of the Channel 4 sci-fi drama


The new series of Channel 4’s Humans began last Sunday, and it was good to see its patented mix of high-concept sci-fi and grounded human drama back on our screens as the Hawkins family adjusted to their new life, Niska sought justice and Leo tried to help other newly-conscious androids.


Now, can exclusively reveal what’s to come next for the synth family in this touching clip from Sunday’s upcoming episode, which sees Mia (Gemma Chan) meet the mother (Anastasia Hille) of her employer Ed as she struggles with dementia.

Moved by Diane’s struggles, Mia breaks her synth “character” to comfort her, and overall the whole scene is a good reminder of Humans’ strengths: science fiction and human emotion, all mixed together.


Humans continues on Channel 4 this Sunday 6th November at 9.00pm
