3 hours 1 minute
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? Prepare to travel through the bad gateway as acclaimed actor, writer and comedian Tom Neenan (The Mash Report) finds out what horrors may be lurking in our apps and gadgets. From a dating app with paranormal parameters to a sinister smart fridge, a petrifying Peloton, a nightmarish NFT and a word game that turns n*sty, tech blogger Tom discovers the dark side of our beloved devices - with hair-raising results...

This box set includes every series of the humorously horrifying anthology/sitcom - including Series 4, which has never previously been released on audio. Jenny Bede co-stars as Tom's friend Heidi, and special guests include Frances Barber, Nicola Walker, Julian Rhind-Tutt, Andy Nyman, Martin Jarvis, Lewis MacLeod, Joanna Lumley and Peter Davison. The show comes from Pozzitive, proud producers of Cabin Pressure, John Finnemore's Double Acts, Thanks a Lot, Milton Jones!, Armando Iannucci's Charm Offensive and Kevin Eldon Will See You Now.
