Returning to screens shortly after a four-year hiatus, Charlie Brooker is back to challenge the Covid-19 pandemic tonight – so read on to find out how to watch Antiviral Wipe online and get a healthy dose of sardonic satire no matter where you are in the world.
Charlie Brooker's Anti-Viral Wipe – Checklist
The lockout special airs on Thursday May 14 at 9:00 p.m. BST on BBC Two in the UK. It will be available to watch on iPlayer shortly after the broadcast.
After winning a Bafta Award for Screenwipe in 2016, Brooker put the show on the ice, choosing instead to focus on the highly successful dystopian science fiction anthology, Black Mirror.
But being quarantined has drawn Charlie back to what promises to be a bitter look at locked-out life. In addition to targeting the political fallout from the epidemic, it will also examine what we did to deal with it during the crisis.
Alongside Brooker, there is also the welcome return of collaborators Barry Shitpeas and the divinely impassive Philomena Clunk (played by Diane Morgan). This is a show no self-respecting comedy fan will want to miss – so here's how to watch Charlie Brooker's Antiviral Wipe online tonight, no matter where you are in the world.
