Described by Channel 4 as a ‘twisted parable for the Twitter age,’ the programme cheap viagra pills plays on our unease with the modern world through its techno-paranoia thrills and suspense’s.

For the Christmas special we can expect to see three interwoven tales, all of a Yuletide narrative and all of a sharp and enthralling description that has been described as the most chilling and mind-bending Black Mirror to date. “I’m delighted that we have a Black Mirror Special this Christmas,” says Channel 4’s Head of Comedy Phil Clarke. “Charlie Brooker has penned a dystopian future festive tale, that intertwines three stories to deliver a dramatic and thrilling twist.
