Spoilers ahoy as synopses and casting details are released for Black Mirror's second series...

Last night saw the BFI premiere of the first episode in Black Mirror’s second series, which means that a Channel Four broadcast date won’t be too far behind.

We’ll bring you a spoiler-free review of the series opener soon, but in the meantime, the following plot and casting details have been revealed for the three fifty-minute episodes.

(We're posting the details as sparingly as possible for those interested, and as ever, have kept the major spoilers out, but with a series as smart and surprising as Black Mirror, why not step away from the screen now and go in completely cold? Given the choice, it’s what we’d do.)

Episode one: Be Right Back

Cast: Domhnall Gleeson, Hayley Atwell and Sinead Matthews

Premise: What if we could stay in touch with the dead via their social media profiles?


Episode two: The Waldo Moment

Cast: Daniel Rigby, Jason Flemyng, Tobias Menzies.

Premise: Could a kids’ TV show mascot, introduced into a political race as a stunt, muster the popular support to win?


Episode three: White Bear

Cast: Lenora Crichlow, Tuppence Middleton, Ian Bonar

Premise: How has the majority of the population been quelled into a state of mindless voyeurism? And can our protagonist stop the people responsible?
