Got a question for Charlie Brooker? We want to hear it

Ahead of the third series of Black Mirror, Charlie is returning to the Guardian to answer readers’ questions

Charlie Brooker’s dystopian technology series Black Mirror comes to Netflix for its third series at the end of this month.

To celebrate, Charlie is returning to the Guardian – home of Screen Burn and his beloved G2 column – to answers questions from readers. They could be about how it feels to see elements of Black Mirror playing out in real life. They could be about hanging around in the green room with Screen Wipe’s Barry Shitpeas and Philomena Cunk.

Charlie Brooker answers your questions: 'I get angry to amuse myself'

What's the worst TV programme ever made? What's going on with your hair? And what do you think of Guardian commenters? Charlie Brooker answers your questions. Grudgingly

What's up with your hair? @OnAgathasBehalf

People go on about it as if some big makeover decision was taken or that I looked through a catalogue of haircuts designed to enrage fanbases – which would be a brilliant catalogue. But no, what actually happened is that I stopped cutting my hair. Basically, my hair is very thick and it grows really fast. Nobody ever knows what to do with it.
