Summary

Modern technology is terrifying. The average smartphone carries out 3.36 billion instructions per second. The average person can carry out only one instruction in that time. Stop and think about that for a second. Sorry, that’s two instructions; you won’t be able to do that.

But what if modern technology was...literally terrifying? What if there really was a ghost in the machine? Travel through the bad gateway in this modern ghost story as award-winning writer and performer Tom Neenan discovers what horrors may lurk in our apps and gadgets.... 

In the first episode of the first series, Tom tries out a dating app that seems to find people who may not quite be compatible in terms of age, location...or century....

In show 2, Tom has acquired a healthy new lifestyle, a shiny new fridge and a terrifying new problem.

In the first episode of series 2, Tom records a podcast - with an unwanted guest....

In the next episode Tom downloads a taxi app which offers some unexpected destinations....

...and in the final episode Tom attracts the attention of a very persistent vlogger.... 

This show comes from Pozzitive, proud producers of Cabin Pressure, John Finnemore’s Double Acts, Thanks a Lot, Milton Jones!, Agendum, Armando Iannucci’s Charm Offensive and Kevin Eldon Will See You Now....

Great little show

Really enjoyed this drama. Hope more will be produced. The mix of comedy with spooky elements is really my jam. 5 stars 🤣
