Here’s How UTOPIA, a Dark Comedy TV Series from 2013/2014, Perfectly Predicted the ‘Conspiracy Theorist’s’ Take on the COVID-19 Pandemic
Here’s an overview of how Utopia, Dennis Kelly’s dark comedy TV series that ran on Channel 4 in the UK in 2013 and 2014, predicted the “conspiracy theorist’s” take on what’s occurred with the COVID-19 saga. The show, which centers on four “normies” tangoing with a shadowy organization known only as “The Network,” features narrative elements including a global human sterilization campaign masquerading as a “vaccination” response to an outbreak of a flu virus; a powerful cabal of elites controlling government officials using intimidation tactics; and the idea that the same people who want to cull the global population are also hard at work weaponizing disease.

Was SARS-CoV-2 released from a lab or was it a zoonotic spillover? Did the virus spread rapidly around the world or did fraudulently interpreted PCR tests just make it look like that was the case? Are respiratory viruses even real? What’s actually inside of the injections being passed off as COVID “vaccines”? Was the response to the “pandemic” planned—and, if so, for how long, and by whom? And, most importantly: where is Jessica Hyde?
If you haven’t been sucked into the mass formation (hat tip to Mattias Desmet), chances are questions like the ones above have been swirling around in your mind for almost three years; bubbling to the surface any time a new piece of the—real—COVID-19 narrative either fits, or doesn’t fit from your point of view. But while the big COVID questions still (perhaps forever will) have vague answers at best, that last question is easy to answer: Jessica Hyde is a character from a 2013/2014 dark comedy series on the UK’s Channel 4 network dubbed Utopia. And it was a show that, despite only running for two six-episode seasons, perfectly predicted “the conspiracy theorist’s” take on the COVID-19 narrative. Including everything from the idea that there was never a novel virus to the “vaccines” being used as a tool for implementing a sterility agenda.
Like too many great television shows Utopia—a brief trailer for which is immediately above—was cancelled abruptly in 2014 when Channel 4 announced the show needed to end in order for the network “to commission [a] new drama.” Or, in other words—as Screen Rant noted in a September 2020 article—the show simply didn’t attract a large enough audience to keep its place on the network’s schedule. But it certainly should have. Especially considering how eerily good it was at predicting the essence of what has happened (again, according to “conspiracy theorists”) with the COVID crisis; seven years before it kicked off.
The exceptionally violent show—which sees many of its characters treat murder, and torture, like mindless household chores—centers on four members of an online forum dedicated to a graphic novel dubbed The Utopia Experiments, which conspiracy theorists (in the show) say is good at predicting future events on the world stage. Events such as the 1986 BSE (bovine spongiform encephalopathy) outbreak in the U.K. and the assassination of Indian Prime Minister Indira Ghandi in 1984.
The four main characters, including IT consultant Ian Johnson, post-grad student Becky (no last name given), survivalist conspiracy theorist “Wilson Wilson,” and 11-year-old latchkey kid and chronic liar Grant Leetham, are dropped into a blender of mystery, violence, nefarious actors, and spy games when a fifth member of their online group winds up dead in the pilot episode. That member, Bejan Chervo, is killed by two other recurring characters in the show—psychopathic assassin Piètre (a.k.a. “arby” or “raisin boy”) and his partner in crime “Lee”—when he claims to have in his possession a part two of the highly coveted graphic novel.
As Johnson, Becky, Wilson, and Leetham flee from Piètre and Lee—who are in hot pursuit of a woman by the name of Jessica Hyde—they unfold a grand conspiracy by a shadow organization known as The Network aimed at rendering the vast majority of the human population infertile. The Network, as we come to learn, believes what some of the most powerful people in the real world believe: that humanity is growing far too fast, and, to preserve Earth’s precious resources, its population must be controlled and diminished.
The broad strokes of the show’s narrative align perfectly with those of a conspiracy theorist’s outline of what has happened with the COVID-19 saga. Ask conspiracy nuts like former Pfizer Vice President Michael Yeadon, immunologist Dr. Dolores Cahill, Errol Musk (Elon Musk’s father), and Dr. Francis Boyle, for example, and they’ll tell you there is indeed a powerful cabal that wants to wipe billions of humans off the face of the planet as soon as possible. Just as The Network—manifesting in the show through characters like MI5 agent Milner, the acting CEO of the biosciences company Corvadt, the CEO of the Rochane Foundation (an NGO), et al.—aims to dwindle the population down through infertility, so too do people like, say, Klaus Schwab and Bill Gates. At least, according to conspiracy theorists anyway.
Utopia doesn’t only paint a picture that’s broadly familiar for many either. The devil in the show is not only in the pages of the centerpiece graphic novel, but also in the series’ details.
Right off the bat, in season one episode one, for example, a man speaking for Corvadt’s CEO Conran Letts tells the UK Minister of Health and his private secretary Michael Dugdale about PCR testing; specifically noting it can be used to extract sequences of DNA from ill patients. The man speaking for Letts goes on to note that “according to [Corvadt’s] research the H1N1 pathogen in this new strain [of Russian flu] is about to mutate, and we’ll have potential for mortality rates in the hundreds of thousands.”
That—scare—of a mutated strain of the Russian flu (which was a variant of H1N1 that hit in the 1970s and may have been the result of a lab leak), is what kicks off a mass “vaccination” effort in the show; with a vaccine aimed at sterilizing 90 to 95% of the human race. In the first season’s fourth episode Becky, Johnson, and Wilson confront Letts from Corvadt who lays out The Network’s reason for its sterilization efforts after they capture him at their temporary hideout.
“We’ve now passed seven billion people on this planet. When I was born it was a little over two. Food prices are rising, oil is ending. When our resources end in 20 years, given everything that we know of our species, do you really think we are going to just share?” Letts says to Becky et al. as they have him tied to a chair. Letts goes on to note that “Janus,” an engineered protein and amino acid pair, which if combined, stops cellular reproduction in the body related to fertility, “affects 90 to 95% of the population, leaving only 1 in 20 fertile.” Letts adds the Network predicts “that the population will plateau at 500 million in just under 100 years… [and by] then, normal breeding rates [will] resume. But on a planet that will feel empty.”
A conspiracy theorist—again, like former Pfizer VP Michael Yeadon or the father of one of the wealthiest men in the world—could point to the data now presenting in the literature after the rollout of the wildly dangerous COVID-19 “vaccines” and say that our real-world novel injections, just like the ones in Utopia, appear to be highly detrimental to people’s fertility. An overwhelming amount of evidence has already cropped up revealing profound effects the novel injections are having on women’s menstrual cycles, for example. There has even been a peer-reviewed study showing that Pfizer-BioNTech’s COVID-19 “vaccines” cause a persistent decline of approximately 16% in sperm concentration and about 20% in total motile count at the six-month mark after injection. (Read more about both of those “vaccine”-induced phenomena in the posts embedded above.)
Further connecting that aspect of Utopia‘s plot to real life are data coming out of half-a-dozen European countries indicating a significant drop in birthrate nine months after the initial COVID-19 rollout occurred. Those data, which have been analyzed by mathematician and computer scientist Igor Chudov, also reveal a distinct pattern: the higher the COVID “vaccination” rate amongst a given population, the sharper the birthrate decline it has experienced. (Learn more about that via the post embedded immediately below.)
Along with its salient narrative points on the theory of a depopulation-via-“vaccination” agenda spawned by a powerful “network” of people, Utopia also incorporates the idea that there is no novel flu providing an impetus for the sterility “vaccines.” On the contrary, in the show it’s only the fear of a deadly flu pandemic that kicks off the global “vaccination” campaign.
“I was in Hong Kong when SARS hit. They kept it locked down, but I thought ‘Fuck that, I’m special.’ So I went in, had a look, and found out it didn’t exist,” sketchy scientist Christian Donaldson tells Dugsdale in the fourth episode of the first season. “The whole thing was just a series of unconnected respiratory infections; took me under an hour to discover there was no causal link,” Donaldson adds.
Indeed, Dugsdale, who goes as far as to collect a finger from a dead person who supposedly had been infected and killed by the novel strain of Russian flu first mentioned by Corvadt’s CEO, finds out later in the same episode that the dead Russian-flu victim had actually been killed via “chromic potassium sulphate” poisoning. (Chromium potassium sulphate is a toxic chemical widely used in the dying and textile industry.)
Putting an even finer point on the nocebo pandemic, in the sixth episode of the second season Wilson—after opening his mind up to some of the upsides of depopulation—tells Dugsdale that “you don’t need a pandemic for people to take the vaccine. You just need the fear of a pandemic.” At the same point in the same episode Wilson offers up the idea of releasing a real virus in a remote village as a way to kick off another fake pandemic in the future.
Incidentally, when the COVID-19 crisis kicked off, the World Health Organization (WHO) declared a “Public Health Emergency of International Concern.” The acronym for that declaration of emergency is PHEIC and it is literally pronounced “fake.” (Hear experts verifying that fact via the post immediately above.)
There are numerous other details from Utopia that make one’s ears (especially a conspiracy theorist’s ears) perk up. A news report—on the television in the background of a scene between Hyde and Leetham—from episode three of season one, for example, features the following dialog made unintelligible at points due to the characters’ foreground discussion:
“quarantine… been infected by… –teen are now confirmed dead… as armed services struggle to deliver medical supplies… Initial reports had indicated that everyone who died had an underlying health problem. However, three apparently healthy men in their 20s are now known to have died.”
In this background tidbit we again see alignment between the real COVID-19 “pandemic” and the one in the show. “Quarantine” is mentioned several times in the show (which, to be fair, is a common term in this context, but still…) and the idea of a struggle to deliver medical supplies mirrors the whole “we don’t have enough PPE” crisis in the first half of 2020. Anybody who’s looked at the CDC statistics also knows that 95% of COVID-19 deaths were in people who already had, on average, four (4) additional comorbidities.
In episode three of season one Milner also notes that Jessica Hyde’s father, Philip Carvel, “wrote a paper called The Survival of the Genome in which he advocated a human cull.” The MI5 agent, speaking to Becky, et al. adds that “This is the same man who became involved with weaponizing disease.” Of course, this immediately brings to mind “Dr.” Anthony Fauci and his unequivocal funding of gain-of-function (GOF) research that allowed scientists to make naturally occurring viruses more pathogenic. Just as interestingly, it also brings to mind an essay sci-fi author H.G. wells penned for the so-called Committee of 300, in which he outlined, in part, the need to get the human population down to one billion people in total. (Read more about that via the post embedded immediately below.)
Incredibly, Utopia even nailed the idea of a “cold storage chain” network for delivering the infertility inducing “vaccines.” In episode two of season two Leah Gorsand—the CEO of the Rochane Foundation, an NGO funding the Russian flu vaccine campaign, underwriting the cost for countries that cannot afford it—tells UK Health Minister Geoff Lawson that “It’s all about transport with the vaccines.” The NGO CEO adds that “The cold chain must remain uninterrupted. And this means refrigerated trucks, ships… [because] these places [the vaccines are going to] are remote… .” (Even this tidbit of the show’s script could be connected easily to what has happened with the WHO and the COVID injections on the island nation of Vanuatu.)
Of course a big highlight of the rollout of the COVID mRNA “vaccines” (from Pfizer-BioNTech, Moderna, etc.) has been the necessary use of cold-chain distribution. For the Pfizer-BioNTech injections, for example, the CDC says “ultra-cold freezers” must be used, which are kept at somewhere between -90°C and -60°C. Incidentally, Canadian ER doctor Daniel Nagase, who has looked at the contents of Pfizer-BioNTech’s COVID injections with an electron microscope, says the temperature at which the “vaccines” must be kept is bizarre; he notes that biological organisms only need to be kept at (at max) temperatures of around -20°C to have their reactions halted. He adds that only “advanced chemistry” requires those kinds of frigid temperatures. (Read more about Nagase’s findings via the post embedded immediately below.)
If Utopia is a fictional story that did indeed perfectly predict real history years before it happened the natural question becomes: Who created the show? Because that person must have some special insight into what’s gone on with the COVID-19 saga; if not because of connections to real authorities with insider knowledge, then at least because of intimate connections to the most popular conspiracy theorists who were well known at the time of the show’s writing, such as David Icke. (Who Donaldson mentions by name in the fourth episode of season one.) However, the show’s creator, writer Dennis Kelly, says that he is actually not a conspiracy theorist. In general, anyway.
In the interview immediately below with Kelly, as well as the show’s main cast, the show’s creator outlines what the general idea of the “population growth problem” is. As espoused by, say, Bill Gates in his 2010 “Innovating to Zero!” TED talk.
“There is a big question that we are facing and that we don’t really know what to do about and that is overpopulation in our future,” Kelly says in the interview. “How do we continue on this planet?” the writer asks rhetorically. “We’re in an unsustainable position. And even if you don’t believe in things like global warming, even just… fish is a problem. And by the year 2050 it’s very likely there won’t be any seafood.”
Kelly goes on to note that “this year we passed seven billion [people] on the planet, which is a big milestone.” And while he’s “not suggesting what we do is we go out and we sterilize people” he does note there are questions about the problem that need to be answered. (Kelly seems to be unaware, unfortunately, of the fact that population collapse is the biggest threat that faces humankind, not population growth.)
In regards to conspiracy theories more broadly, Kelly says “there are tons of them out there,” but he doesn’t believe them “generally” himself. Anecdotally, he notes that he told a friend of his about Utopia as the show was in an infancy, and she brought up the idea of the Swine flu vaccine being used as a covert sterilization tool. Kelly says he “thought Christ, that’s exactly what I’ve just made up.” Despite Kelly’s incredulity, however, it’s interesting to note that a peer-reviewed study from 2017 showed—in great detail—how the WHO had deployed a “vaccine” in Kenya that was ostensibly supposed to inoculate against Tetanus, but instead worked as a sterilization agent. The authors of the study, which included Kenyan doctors who had first-hand knowledge of the matter, said it was clear the WHO—specifically using money from Bill Gates—was deliberately deploying the sterilization shots under the guise of their being tetanus vaccines. (Read more about that via the post embedded immediately above.)
Confirming Kelly’s own description of himself as a non “conspiracy theorist” has been his reaction to the COVID narrative—at least, according to online interviews—since the 2020 “pandemic” broke out. Rather than screaming from the rooftops—Hey everyone! I called it! I freakin’ called it!—which would be more than reasonable, Kelly seems to have been doing his best to continue on with business as usual. Interviews he’s given since 2020 don’t seem to include the show’s creator going off about how Utopia was so prescient, nor what may be coming next.
On the contrary, Kelly wrote a made-for-TV movie in 2021 called Together. That film—based on its trailer (immediately above)—is an occasionally dramatic rom-com about a couple stuck inside their home with each other during the so-called COVID-19 pandemic “lockdowns.” It apparently includes absolutely nothing about any of the conspiratorial aspects of COVID-19. (According to the information about the film that’s available online, anyway.)
Just because Kelly doesn’t generally believe in conspiracy theories, however, it should be noted that he was not actually the prime mover for the series’ creation. According to a Channel 4 interview from 2012 Kelly said that Kudos—a British film and television production company owned by an international television production and distribution company known as the Shine Group—“came to [him] with [the] idea.” Kelly goes on to say that “it was about a conspiracy hidden inside a graphic novel. It was very embryonic, and a bit more comic-book… the conspiracy was quite ‘illuminati.'” Kelly says in the same interview that he didn’t want to make the show “superheroic or sci-fi,” but rather “ground it in quite a real world… .” Which he nailed, of course. (According to conspiracy theorists… .)
Of course, the fact that Kudos brought the source idea—the seed!—for Utopia to Kelly means that it must’ve originated from some other person’s mind. Wikipedia credits Huw Kennair-Jones, Mark Aldridge, and Clare McDonald for that kernel of inspiration, and all three are credited with the show’s “original idea” on IMDB (although it’s unclear if they did any actual writing on the show). But a cursory look online reveals little information about the trio. Which is a dead-end that could make a conspiracy theorist wonder… Where exactly did the idea for Utopia come from? And if there’s a real-life inspiration for Jessica Hyde, where is she?
