Inside No.9 review: series three: 'Empty Orchestra'

'Empty Orchestra' is a very affecting piece. There are moments in it that stay with you and replay inside your head, such is the level of poignancy which builds within it, almost like a piece of music reaching a crescendo.

Inside No.9 season 3 episode 4 review: Empty Orchestra

It's a half hour with significantly more emotional heft, having on its playlist such old classics as betrayal, regret and unrequited love.

Emily Howlett on learning to 'sing'

I am Deaf. I can't hear my own voice. I have very little understanding of what constitutes music, and no idea at all about things like keys, pitch or melody - I even struggle with the concept of 'high' and 'low' sounds. But when Reece Shearsmith and Steve Pemberton ask you to sing, you're going to sing, godammit.

Inside No 9: Empty Orchestra review

Anyone who has taken part in a works' karaoke outing knows that it's an arena for bad singing, annoyingly good singing and professional tensions to surface unprofessionally. The latest episode of Inside No 9, Steve Pemberton and Reece Shearsmith's terrifically clever portmanteau series, exploited this to full effect to provide another 30-minute oddity that was bursting with ideas and left you with a feeling of deep unsettlement, like reading an MR James story and then remembering the denouement in your dreams and waking up in a cold sweat.
