    Well the lighter episode last week was in sharp contrast to this week's misery fest.

    I liked the style of the episode and the Vivaldi.

    I didn't get the end of it though - the bit where the zoomed in on the shoe in the picture, and the CCTV in the credits.

    Well the last episode was the best for a long while... Loved Fiona Shaw and Felicity Kendall in particular. :D Great stuff.

    Didn't like the final twist though - totally unnecessary.

    It was his shoe all along and he'd planted it there. Not sure what he was trying to achieve though, an obsession to divert from his grief?

    The week's was great, albeit quite Saw.

    Anyone bothered with the new series?

    The first one I found clever if a little grating, the second one with the washed-up entertainers utterly predictable, the third one with the removal man brilliant, the fourth with the wedding photographer also excellent and the most recent with the awards jury again utterly predictable but enjoyable.

    I hope this runs forever, they work so well as half hour episodes and although I think we're probably guessing the twists more easily now it's still one of the best shows on TV.

    Loved the last episode of this series, that final twist was brilliant.

    I liked every episode, but thought Episode 5 was a little TOO obvious from the beginning. Guessed the twist about 2 minutes in.

    Loved the episode with the 10 minutes earlier thing... and the last episode. Also loved the iambic pentameter opener.

    So three really excellent episodes, two good and one that was watchable enough. Always worth watching.

    I did not guess episode 5 twist at all. The 10 minutes earlier one was brilliant. The last episode was great, but not the best, although the girl was FAF.

    Yes 10 minutes earlier was definitely my favourite.

    I've just been told, I kind of wish I was watching it now - is it not all an elaborate set-up though?

    I can't believe I fell for it! Should have realised it wouldn't have been straightforward. My mum had never seen the show before and was utterly confused :D

    I can't believe you fell for it either! :D In fairness, I watched it on Dailymotion as I'm in America and did think 'oh for fuck's sake, they must have cut some sound so they could get it up on Dailymotion for copyright'... but as soon as it went to continuity announcer I thought 'nah... this is Inside No.9'... :D

    I thought the second half was a bit of a mess to be honest and they didn't seem to know what they wanted to do with it, but there were a couple of really scary bits.

    The second half was a bit of a mess, but it worked. It was super meta.

    "we should have got Pam Ferris"
    "no that's Black Mirror"

    :D

    It took me until the demons appeared in the series 1 episode. But I already had my suspicions.

    This definitely lost something being watched on catch up but I still enjoyed it! It really was all over the place in a delicious wtf kind of way.

    Couldn't be arsed to switch over from BBC Four so I watched a random episode of this (the suicide hotline one). How have I never seen it before?! It's so good.

    One of my top 5 episodes probably.
