Inside No. 9 Season 3 Episode 6 review

In such a small cast, it's a challenge to keep the mystery going, but there are enough misleads and meaningful glances to confuse everyone, and once the villain is revealed (slightly earlier than you might expect), it matters not.

Inside No. 9 Review: Series Three: 'Private View'

More than any other Inside No. 9 of series three, Private View features Pemberton & Shearsmith wearing an apparel of horror and thriller influences on their collaborative sleeve.

Inside No 9 review

Wicked murder mystery forms a fitting series finale.

Mark Butler, i Newspaper, 22nd March 2017

TV: Inside No 9, Episode 6, Private View

I've been a fan of Inside No. 9 since it started and it has maintained its high standards right through to this, the final show of the third series.

Bruce Dessau, Beyond The Joke, 22nd March 2017

TV Review: Inside No. 9 - Private View

The latest series of Reece Shearsmith and Steve Pemberton's dark comedy tales has come to a fantastically grisly end, with a star-studded episode full of mystery and murder.

Anneka Honeyball, The National Student, 22nd March 2017

Inside No 9 -  'Private View' review

The finale of Inside No. 9 series 3 was indebted to Agatha Christie classic And Then There Were None, and Theatre of Blood. Coming after lots of episodes that felt claustrophobic, "Private View" felt a little more expansive, despite everything taking place inside a modern art installation adorned with white mannequins.

Dan Owen, Dan's Media Digest, 22nd March 2017

It's the night of contemporary artist Elliot Quinn's valedictory show, Fragments. But why are those attending east London's Nine Gallery, including a humourless council official called Kenneth Williams and an airhead reality TV star, such a motley crew? And why have they been locked in? A gloriously nasty conclusion to the anthology comedy series from Steve Pemberton and Reece Shearsmith, whose distinctive style never gets dull.

Jonathan Wright, The Guardian, 21st March 2017

This is a gruesome and darkly comic episode. Just as you're laughing at a one-liner you'll start wincing at the next scene.

Julie McDowall, The National (Scotland), 21st March 2017

Preview - Inside No. 9: Private View

Who would have thought that the star of one of Britain's most famously loveable sitcoms would star in one of the darkest comedies around?

Ian Wolf, On The Box, 21st March 2017

Inside No. 9 series 3 episode 6 review: Private View

What I'm trying to say is that Inside No. 9 is remarkable. And series three has perhaps been its most remarkable series yet.
