Much about this episode is fed by things we've seen in previous Black Mirrors, particularly the use of technology, but overall it's a damning indictment of the callousness of humans; what a lovely Christmassy subject!
If the all-too-plausible predictions didn't chill you to the bone, there was more; an eternity soundtracked by Wizzard's "I Wish It Could Be Christmas Everyday". Please God, nooooo!
For newcomers, "White Christmas" can be a welcome shock, a purgative guaranteed to counteract overdoses of holiday cheer.
I realise this all sounds profoundly depressing, and it is. Yet White Christmas is presented with a great deal of mischief and wit and humour, all of which prevent it from being the greatest advertisement the Samaritans have ever had.
Black Mirror is here to remind you that even empathetic people can ruin lives, and taking the moral high ground in an argument can't fix the world. Oh, and if a Don Draper type tries to charm you? Run.
