Black Mirror is arguably one of the most creative and daring TV shows of recent years. The series, in which each standalone episode examines the ways in which seemingly positive or benign technology can have unanticipated and undesirable consequences, was created by Charlie Brooker and has received very positive reviews.

In the debut episode, The National Anthem, Prime Minister Michael Callow faces a shocking dilemma when Princess Susannah, a much-loved member of the Royal Family, is kidnapped.
