Channel 4

Electric Dreams

Honestly, you wait years for a new Philip K. Dick adaptation and two come along at once. As well as the forthcoming sequel to ‘Blade Runner’, (the original of which was based on Dick’s ‘Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep’), Channel 4 are enlivening Autumn with a sci-fi anthology series of 10 epic, standalone episodes based on his short stories. Electric Dreams features an all-star roster of a cast featuring the likes of Steve Buscemi, Julia Davis, Timothy Spall and Bryan Cranston heading up these journeys into the far reaches of imagination.

If you are of a certain age, however, we’re willing to bet you will find it hard to hear the title of the series without this going off in your head where it will happily remain for the rest of the day…
