Well the lighter episode last week was in sharp contrast to this week's misery fest.
Can't wait for Morgana next week
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. 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.
I love it, such a clever series.
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.
They're doing to a live episode for Halloween (28th October).
This is on tonight.
I'm fucking livid at what's happened!
OMG at all this.
I've just been told, I kind of wish I was watching it now - is it not all an elaborate set-up though?
That was great.
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
I can't believe you fell for it either! 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'...
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"
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.
What, so the technical issue is part of it?! I watched it on iplayer and turned it off when that happened!
Which was always the risk they were going to take I guess...!!!
One of my top 5 episodes probably.
Season 5 currently filming.
With filming underway for the fifth series of the award-winning and critically-acclaimed Inside No. 9, a host of talented actors are set join masterminds Reece Shearsmith and Steve Pemberton as they create six brand new stand-alone stories which promise to bring more exceptionally twisted tales to BBC Two.
The new series follows last year’s live Hallowe’en special Dead Line, which has been cited by The Guardian’s TV reviewers as the best TV episode of 2018. Season five will stay true to the show’s anthology format, with each episode bringing an original story, a cast of new characters and surprising twists in the most unexpected of places. Combining horror, thriller, drama and comedy, Inside No. 9 never fails to amaze, delight, unnerve and amuse in equal measures, with series four treating audiences to an episode written entirely in iambic pentameter and a murder mystery told in reverse chronological order.
As ever, there will be a stellar cast joining Reece and Steve: the line-up includes Maxine Peake (Silk, Three Girls), Jenna Coleman (Doctor Who, Victoria), David Morrissey (The Missing), Dipo Ola (Baghdad Central), Phil Davis (Vera Drake, Whitechapel), Ralf Little (The Royle Family, Two Pints of Lager), Jill Halfpenny (Three Girls, In The Club), Steve Speirs (Star Wars, Upstart Crow), Tom Goodman-Hill (Ideal, Mr Selfridge), Fionn Whitehead (Dunkirk, Black Mirror: Bandersnatch), Kadiff Kirwan (Chewing Gum, Black Mirror: Nosedive), Debbie Rush (Coronation Street) and Ioanna Kimbook (recently cast opposite John Malkovich in the new David Mamet play Bitter Wheat).
Reece Shearsmith and Steve Pemberton say: “We’re delighted to announce a guest cast brimming with both emerging and established talent, all judiciously chosen to make us look a bit classier by association.”
Shane Allen, Controller, BBC Comedy Commissioning, says: “Reece and Steve consistently dazzle and delight with what is undoubtedly the most inventively prolific storytelling series on television. Their ability to subvert and surprise makes each show a unique experience for the viewers. It’s the antidote to a world of familiar cosy TV formats.”
Last year, Reece and Steve won the Writer: Comedy Bafta Award for The Bill (from series three), with series four winning the South Bank Show Award for Comedy. This year, Inside No. 9 scooped up two wins in the Comedy.co.uk Awards, Best Comedy Drama and Comedy of the Year for 2018, following on from the same double win the previous year and breaking records as the first time a show as had a double consecutive win in the award's 13 year history. These awards add to the growing list of wins that include the Writers’ Guild Award for the Best TV Situation Comedy in 2017, the Rose d’Or Television Comedy Award (2016), the RTS Programme Award for Comedy Performance (2015), and two major prizes at the Banff World Media Festival (2014).
One of the six new films in this series will be directed by Steve Pemberton, returning to the role after Cold Comfort and Nana’s Party from the 2015 series. Guillem Morales (Julia’s Eyes, Decline and Fall) returns to direct three further films, with the two remaining films directed by Matt Lipsey (Psychoville, Upstart Crow)
Inside No. 9 is a BBC Studios Comedy Production written by Reece Shearsmith and Steve Pemberton, commissioned by Shane Allen, Controller, BBC Comedy Commissioning and Gregor Sharp, Commissioning Editor for the BBC, executive produced by Jon Plowman (Absolutely Fabulous, W1A), and produced by Adam Tandy (The Thick Of It, Detectori
