Elec­tric Dreams The Hood Maker Sun­day Chan­nel pm

He’s the vi­sion­ary writer who gave the world Blade Run­ner, To­tal Re­call and Mi­nor­ity Re­port. So you’d ex­pect a series based on Philip K Dick’s short sto­ries to be a tour de force of the imag­i­na­tion – and the fever­ishly unpredictable sci­ence-fic­tion tales of Elec­tric Dreams do not dis­ap­point. The show is a labour of love for its pro­ducer, Break­ing Bad star Bryan Cranston, who has drawn to­gether a phe­nom­e­nal ar­ray of tal­ent. Up­com­ing episodes fea­ture Os­car-win­ner Anna Paquin as a po­lice­woman of the fu­ture and Ti­mothy Spall play­ing a rail­way guard whose com­muter train goes each day to a non-ex­is­tent town. Cranston him­self ap­pears in the story of a cru­elly unlov­ing hus­band who’s mirac­u­lously trans­formed overnight, while next week Jack Reynor stars as an in­ter­plan­e­tary tour guide in search of Earth. But first, fresh from her tri­umphant role in BBC1 hit series Strike, Hol­l­i­day Grainger is a telepath in a world tee­ter­ing on the brink of war be­tween mu­tants and or­di­nary hu­mans. Look into the fu­ture and you’ll know ex­actly where to be for the next few Sun­day nights.
