The se­ries is packed with a wealth of tal­ent, both in front of and be­hind the cam­era (its ex­ec­u­tive pro­ducer is Break­ing Bad star Bryan Cranston), with dif­fer­ent writ­ers and di­rec­tors bring­ing their vi­sions to the screen over ten sto­ries. The first is The Hood Maker, writ­ten by Matthew Gra­ham (Life On Mars), a fu­tur­is­tic tale about the war be­tween nor­mal hu­man be­ings and a race of tele­pathic mu­tants. Hol­l­i­day Grainger and Richard Mad­den (above) lead the cast. To­mor­row, 9pm, Chan­nel 4.
