What is BBC Two's Devs about?

The latest episode is out on Wednesday

Speaking about the series, creator Alex Garland explained: "[It] started with two things. One was getting my head around this principle of determinism, which basically says everything that happens in the world is based on cause and effect. That has all kinds of implications of us: it takes away free will. And if you had a computer powerful enough, you could predict the future and understand the past." 

Is the Devs soundtrack available?

Fans have praised the season one soundtrack, which is a mixture of original music by Ben Salisbury and Geoff Burrow as well as plenty of songs that already exist. While there is yet to be an official soundtrack, one or two fans have put together the tunes on Spotify playlists for your listening enjoyment!
