A festive one-off episode of Charlie Brooker's Black Mirror is coming to Channel 4 this Christmas...

Excellent news for anyone who prefers a dash of something tart in the cloyingly sweet cocktail of Christmas TV: there's going to be a festive episode of Black Mirror.

As an alternative to soap slaughter and the hairy bikers wrapping baubles in puff pastry, we'll be able to enjoy a one-off Black Mirror special. The as-yet-untitled December episode has been described by Channel 4 as "a dystopian future festive tale that intertwines three stories".

Writer Charlie Brooker said of the special, "I always enjoy a good ghost story at Christmas, and I'm a sucker for the Amicus compendium horror movies of the 70s. Our aim is to create the Black Mirror equivalent of that."

A full series of three further episodes is rumoured to be the plan for Black Mirror 2015.
