Black Mirror: Bandersnatch was very good wasn’t it? It got everyone talking about multiple endings and made people think about how television could evolve, plus we all just wanted to give poor Stefan a hug.

It was a hell of a lot of work though, what with Black Mirror co-creators Charlie Brooker and Annabel Jones trying to plot out the story. And we can’t even begin to imagine all of the headaches trying to organise a production schedule and then put all the footage together in the right places.

We wouldn’t be surprised if they would never want to do something like that again, but they’ve actually admitted they’re totally up for it. The crazy people.

“By the end I was saying, ‘Oh I’ve got an idea.’ It’s definitely something I would do again and I think there are lots of ways to tackle it.

“The biggest challenge is narratively. It would have to justify being interactive otherwise, why put yourself through that?” he added.
