The eight-part series Humans (starring William Hurt, Rebecca Front and Katherine Parkinson) centres on the contemporary consumer; except this is within a parallel universe where you can purchase a synth – a cutting-edge robotic servant. Designed to assist with household chores, childcare and even personal training; synths are THE accessory for a busy family.
