Inside No. 9: Merrily Merrily review

New series of Inside No. 9 often kick off on a lightish tone, a gentle palate-cleanser for knottier or more chilling plots further down the line. But Merrily, Merrily strikes a melancholic note as three old university pals reunite after 30-odd years for a nostalgic trip on an eerily empty lake.

Inside No. 9 7.1 review: Merrily, Merrily

And we're back! Series seven of the UKs most original TV show returns with an uneven episode that nonetheless feels like we're reconnecting with an old friend, perhaps more than any other instalment.

Inside No. 9 review

It didn't disappoint. Well OK, the ending did a smidgin because I'd guessed the twist, but as a metaphor for Mark Gatiss, Reece Shearsmith and Steve Pemberton, who became a trio after meeting as students at Bretton Hall college in Yorkshire, it was exquisite.
