‘Black Mirror’, pretty much the best slice of British sci-fi since forever, is coming back this Christmas, and to mark the quasi-occasion, I’ve decided to share the dark secret that runs through the whole series; every episode happens in the same unified universe. But how do they link together exactly?
‘Black Mirror’ uses the medium of television to stage ideas that are unraveled but never concluded. As a result you are left feeling generally satisfied with the window of the particular worlds that are presented but always hungry for more. Now that the second series draws to close, it seems to the perfect time to discuss and draw out general themes from the wholes series.
