Inside No. 9 series 6 episode 2 review: Simon Says

Inside No. 9 explores the dark side of the creator-fan relationship in a malevolent story of entitlement, arrogance and obsession. Spoilers.

Review: Inside No 9 takes a look at the power of fans

Rather like Misdirection from last series, Simon Says has an initial twist that regular Inside No. 9 viewers will possibly expect. However, Shearsmith and Pemberton still know how to surprise us, so the story goes on to deliver further twists and turns that will keep even the most seasoned viewers on their toes. The result is a thrilling episode that ranks up there with the show's very best.

Inside No. 9 review: Simon Says

Simon Says is another strong episode, and if the intention is to kick off a discussion on Creators Vs Fandoms then it succeeds as the episode never conclusively comes down on either side.

Inside No. 9 review

The whole tale was so arch it was bent double. But no one has said 'bomb' in such a silly accent since the Pink Panther movies. I defy you not to snigger.

Inside No. 9 review

The prospect of a new series of Inside No. 9 is delicious. Reece Shearsmith and Steve Pemberton are surely now at national treasure status. So it pains me to say that I didn't much enjoy last night's offering, which Gemma Whelan explained to camera was a cross between commedia dell'arte and a heist movie, but felt to me largely like a drama students' circle jerk.

Inside No 9: Wuthering Heist review

Wuthering Heist is another ambitious episode, bringing back Inside No 9 with a bang that should satisfy all the fans who have been eagerly awaiting it. Even, maybe, those on internet fan boards...

TV: Inside No 9, Wuthering Heist, BBC Two

Last week I was mildly mocked on social media for describing a programme that some people didn;t like the sound of as "eagerly anticipated". I think it is fair, however, to describe the new series of Inside No. 9 as eagerly anticipated without risking a big lawsuit landing in my inbox with a virtual thwack.

Inside No. 9 review

Anthology series Inside No. 9 only gets weirder and takes more risks the longer it goes on. Three cheers for an audacious return.

Inside No. 9 review

A bewildering and dramatic amuse-bouche.
