"Black Museum" is the sixth episode of Black Mirror's fourth season. It will star Douglas Hodge, Letitia Wright, and Babs Olusanmokun.


Co-creator Annabel Jones disclosed the following information about the episode: "Black Museum is absolute popcorn. It’s three stories in one – a portmanteau-type thing – but absolutely full of ideas that whip along and before you know it you’re at the end of a 90-minute film and you’re like, ‘Oh my God, can you please stop? This is horrendous – stop throwing me these things!” It’s just unrelenting. It was the last we did in terms of shooting."

  • Dr. Peter Dawson's story was based on an unreleased short story by Penn Jillette.[1]
  • The Black Museum contains several artefacts from previous episodes.
  • The refueling station next to the museum is called BRB Connect, which is a likely reference to the episode Be Right Back.
  • At one point Jack is seen reading the the plot of Fifteen Million Merits (here titled '15M Merits) in comic book form.
  • Rolo Haynes' test rats are named Kenny and Hector, after the characters from Shut Up and Dance.
  • The news network seen in this episode is USN, presumably an American counterpart to the often-seen UKN.
  • Rolo Haynes mentions the elderly being downloaded into the cloud which may reference the plot of San Junipero.
    • He also calls the hospital where the first two stories take place "St. Juniper", English for San Junipero, possibly the in-universe inspiration for the simulation's name.
  • While discussing the monkey which houses Carrie, Haynes refers to a UN ruling regarding the humane treatment of human consciousnesses as "human rights for cookies"; this might be a reference to the cookies (simulated human personalities) featured in White Christmas.
