Speaking at the Esquire Townhouse this weekend, Brooker and Jones divulged that the series will contain six episodes and is their "most ambitious to date".

Having already focused their sharp observational skills on topics such as social media status as currency, remembering the dead in the world of endless documentation and nostalgia therapy for the lonely, the new series takes on the scariest subject of all - modern dating.

One episode titled Hang the DJ will explore a man and woman (played by Georgina Campbell and Joe Cole) using the app and according to an interview Jones did with The Independent, will look at issues "pertinent to the contemporary dating scene" with "a lot of sex".

Touching on the episode whilst speaking to Esquire (otherwise know as: us), Brooker commented that the episode is "probably a more playful one" and is "as close as we get to a rom-com". Directing the episode is Tim Van Patten who has previously worked on Game of Thrones, The Sopranos and The Wire.

Elsewhere other episodes in the fourth series will explore issues such as helicopter parenting in 'ArkAngel' and imagine a world where our memories are public and can be dredged in 'Crocodile'.
