Call her a mentalist; call her a psychological illusionist. Either way, she’s making a big name for herself in the UK’s burgeoning magic telly genre, and this new series, commissioned for UKTV’s Watch channel, should go some way to extending her reach internationally. In addition to her love of magic, Mills also studied psychology and sociology, and in this series she uses group experiments to reveal how we are subconsciously influenced by the world around us, and how that influence impacts our decisions and interactions. Fun and thought-provoking.
