In The Assassin, Derren Brown, a master of hypnosis, investigates if someone could be hypnotised into killing a celebrity. Is this really possible? And which celeb will it be?

His first show appeared in 2000, Derren Brown: Mind Control, and followed with Trick of the Mind, Trick or Treat and a series of Specials including the controversial Russian Roulette and the hugely popular Events.
In this Show, Derren will attempts to explore the darker side of what makes us tick as human beings and, in one show, teach us how to completely change our fortunes.
