Abstract

Charlie Brooker’s Black Mirror (2011–2016) provides a timely commentary upon digital technologies that increasingly mediate human relationships. Its fantasy elements—which more often than not feel also like a prophesy—prompt reflection upon our own agency and how it is modified and filtered through devices that, more than simply enabling communication, to a large extent determine the nature and even the ethics of our interactions.
