The Coming Storm
QAnon and the plot to break reality. A year on from the Capitol Insurrection in Washington DC on 6 January 2021, Gabriel Gatehouse journeys into the dark undergrowth of modern America. He's looking for the origins of the story that drove the crowds to storm the heart of US democracy. From conspiracy-soaked barrooms in 1990s Arkansas, via spies in hotel rooms in the shadow of the Kremlin, to anarchic chatrooms on the early internet, this is a search for the answer to one big question: did this just happen, or is somebody trying to break reality?

"Gatehouse’s research is excellent. His weaving together of the narrative is compelling and his delivery self-effacing (he admits more than once to disappearing down rabbit holes and actually falling for some of the conspiracy theories he’s trying to debunk). Most of all it’s just really interesting and superbly pulled together...It’s excellent, it really is."

"I was initially sceptical about the series, expecting it to be another QAnon refresher course, but it tells the story well and makes unexpected connections, even if some pieces of the jigsaw take a while to slot into place. Gatehouse is a calm and thoughtful host who uses the series to dig deep into the roots of QAnon."
