    People call Black Mirror the 21st century's Twilight Zone. That's certainly high praise, but the show ultra-eerie third season lives up to that promise. [21/28 Oct 2016, p.95]

    We can confirm that it boasts a string of crackerjack performances from the likes of Stephen Rea as a hangdog spy, Janet McTeer as his spook boss, Lubna Azabal as the housekeeper of Nessa's brother (Andrew Buchan), and Gyllenhaal herself. [25 Jul/1 Aug 2014, p.105]
