Black Mirror: White Christmas (2014 Christmas Special) (2014)
Tv Season Info
Much about this episode is fed by things we've seen in previous Black Mirrors, particularly the use of technology, but overall it's a damning indictment of the callousness of humans; what a lovely Christmassy subject!
I realise this all sounds profoundly depressing, and it is. Yet White Christmas is presented with a great deal of mischief and wit and humour, all of which prevent it from being the greatest advertisement the Samaritans have ever had.
White Christmas' nightmarish tales of isolation might be dark, but they show sage concern about the kind of world we're building for ourselves.
Anyone looking for a feel-good trip into the near-future can turn away now, because Black Mirror's Christmas special is as absorbing, off-putting, and ultimately devastating in its singular significance as any episode that's come before.
