Victoria wakes with a head-ache and bandaged wrists,pills spilled on the floor. A strange sign is flickering on the television but she can remember nothing. Outside she meets Jem, a young woman who explains that the signal on the television set comes from the White Bear transmitter. It has turned most of the population into voyeurs who do nothing but watch and sometimes film as a deadly elite known as the hunters kill those unaffected by the signal,such as Jem and Victoria. Escaping from a hunter they reach the White Bear transmitter,which they intend to destroy. However the White Bear set-up is not what it first appears and nor is Victoria. Written by don @ minifie-1

Did You Know?


The original draft of the script was a straightforward survival story, according to Charlie Brooker. It wasn't until he was shown the filming locations that he came up with the twist ending. See more »


Victoria Skillane: I woke up in this house. I don't even know if it was my house. I don't even know who I am.
Jem: You must know something.
Victoria Skillane: [Victoria shakes her head. Then pulls out a photo of a little girl from her pocket] I think this is my daughter.

Mediocre at best
29 December 2017 | by See all my reviews

This episode has 10 minutes of irrelevant filler storytelling, it should of been like 12 minutes shorter, some reviews elevate this episode because of its meaning, well, unfortunately is not a difficult message to get, this is not Mullholand Dr. It is a very straightforward story, with clear social criticism, you do not need to overthink the meaning, is pretty dumb. Overall the story could of been fine if it was not over explicative at the third act. Most boring episode so far.
