SCIENCE FIC­TION

Elec­tric Dreams: The Hood Maker, 9pm, Ch4

Irish Daily Mail - - Gardening -

BASED on the short sto­ries of sci-fi mas­ter Philip K. Dick, this ten-part an­thol­ogy se­ries of stand­alone dra­mas be­gins with a creepy tale set in a strangely old-fash­ioned city, some­time in the fu­ture. A me­teor shower has de­stroyed much of tech­nol­ogy and the in­ter­net, leav­ing be­hind an ar­chaic, ana­logue world. Hol­l­i­day Grainger stars as a tele­pathic mu­tant, a new breed that was cre­ated by the Great Shower, and is both revered and re­viled by the Nor­mals. Can she stop the war threat­en­ing hu­man­ity? The se­ries in­cludes turns from the likes of Bryan Cranston and Richard Mad­den.
