Inside No. 9: Series 4, Episode 6: Tempting Fate review

This episode is truly creepy. The atmosphere is genuinely disturbing. Due to the darkness of the surroundings and huge piles of boxes all over the place, it feels really claustrophobic. Although there are episodes set in much smaller spaces, the whole tone of the show makes you feel that you are trapped, in the same way the characters are trapped by the wishes of the hare.

Speaking as QI's official "Advanced Pedant", I also happen to know of at least one thing in this show that is wrong. It seems that Alan is slightly mistaken about the reasons why Pike Dad's Army failed to get into the army.
