Inside No. 9 puts a twist on the police procedural

It feels strange now to think that the first series of Inside No. 9 included one episode without Shearsmith among the cast and another without Pemberton because they were worried that viewers might get sick of the sight of them. Five series in and fans do really seem to watch the show for them, rather than for whoever the guest stars of the week might be, and their longstanding chemistry is put to good use in this two-hander episode.
