Channel 4’s Utopia AKA The best British Drama this century

Spoilers…maybe? I guess…for a nearly 4 year old show.

It’s still available on demand via Channel 4 now.  Go watch it.

“When a small group of people find themselves in possession of a manuscript of cult graphic novel Utopia, their lives are knocked out of kilter by explosive events. Targeted by a shadowy organisation known only as The Network, they are left with one option if they want to survive: they have to run.”

A visceral drama about a conspiracy and a group of regular people pulled into its web. A dystopian, speculative fiction brought to life in vivid colour and cinematographic style.

Big Pharma, eugenics, politics, mass fast food manufacture, subterfuge, violence, inhumane testing and torture. The ideas of good people and bad people are tested, blurred and broken as the plot twists and turns with every episode.
