If, like us, you’ve enjoyed having your mind poked by Charlie Brooker’s latest series of Black Mirror, you may have noticed an interesting postscript in the final episode.
At the end of ‘The Waldo Moment’ viewers were treated to the following intriguing message: “Based on an original idea for Nathan Barley by Chris Morris and Charlie Brooker.” This particular episode followed the story of an anarchic CGI bear who ends up standing as a candidate in the local elections. We’d love to know how the storyline would have been woven into Nathan Barley…and why it wasn’t!
For anyone reading this who isn’t familiar with the ultra TVO-centric Nathan Barley (what??), you can get your hands on the series for only £7.50 via The Velvet Onion amazon store. You won’t regret it!
You can watch the three episodes of Brooker’s Black Mirror on 4oD here.
