Inside No. 9: series 6 episode 6 review

It's only the arrival of Inside No. 9's first overtly political episode that marks out how apolitical the show has been until now. Of all the uncomfortable places it's ventured, the state of the nation has stayed largely unexplored territory.

TV review: Inside No 9 - Last Night Of The Proms

Interestingly on social media some people have been saying this is the best epsiode ever, some people saying it is the worst. Which if nothing lese shows that this anthology series continues to arouse strong feelings. One thing is for certain, even a less than brilliant episode of Inside No 9 is better than most of the unimaginative tosh that passes for TV these days.

Inside No 9: Last Night Of The Proms review

This series of Inside No 9 ends with probably its weakest link, even though it's always fascinating to see what Steve Pemberton and Reece Shearsmith come up with.

Inside No. 9 finishes its sixth series with 'aplomb'

On BBC Sounds' Inside Inside No. 9 podcast, Shearsmith remembers the fractured experience of filming The Last Night of the Proms (which began in March 2020, and finally concluded in January 2021), pinpointing the moment in the episode which marks the actors having returned to filming.

Reece Shearsmith interview

The actor-writer talks to James Mottram about spending two weeks in a secluded forest for the new Ben Wheatley film, the snobbery around sketch shows, and why it was 'horrifying'hat people thought the character of Papa Lazarou was racially inspired.

Inside No. 9: How Do You Plead? review

With strong performances (again), jet-black humour (again) and disquieting tone of foreboding (again), How Do You Plead? continues Inside No. 9's enviable track record of suspenseful, out-of-the-ordinary television. No wonder they won the Bafta last night...

Inside No. 9 6.5 review: How Do You Plead?

I generally try to avoid spoilers when talking about Inside No. 9. I never want to take away that incredible feeling of having the rug pulled out from under you. That being said, it's difficult to talk about the latest episode without revealing some pretty important details so I'm just going to say right off the bat...

Inside No. 9 review: How Do You Plead?

Guilty or not guilty? Sir Derek Jacobi is a wonderful guest star in a terrific episode about a damned tricky legal case...

Review: How Do You Plead? one of No. 9's creepiest eps

Given this is Inside No. 9, nothing in How Do You Plead? is as clear-cut as it seems and everyone has something to hide.
