    Good.
    I was rather happy the recent Dracula had a cabin number 9 central to the plot.

    I was rather happy the recent Dracula had a cabin number 9 central to the plot.

    The crapness of Dracula (and Martin’s Close, adapted by Gatiss at Xmas) has made me start to think about the writers’ inputs. I watched the stage version of TLOG last night and noticed how many of the good characters were Steve Pemberton and how few were Gatiss. Be interested to know how much he contributes to Inside No9.

    Inside No9 is Pemberton & Shearsmith. Gatiss is not involved, but there are nods etc.

    Personally I prefer Inside No9 to TLOG, but suffice to say I think Steve Pemberton is one of the best character actors around at the moment, and I love the broad sweep of writing and genres that they cover in Inside No9. One of my favourites is ‘Bernie Clifton’s Dressing Room’

    Can’t wait for this – Inside No.9 has given us some superb one off programmes.

    The “The 12 Days of Christine” being a stand-out episode for me. So much drama and emotion in 30 minutes.

    That episode is just pure brilliance.

    I watched it again a few weeks ago and it’s still had me in awe, I then put it on for the Mrs and spotted some very clever clues with the music and sounds that I’d completed missed.

    A genius series. Every episode is absolute genius.

    It’s on sky/now TV at the moment I think if you’re after past episodes

    Cool, can do Netflix.

    Cheers

    First episode (Sardines) is mildly amusing.

    Second episode (A Quiet Night In) is absolute slapstick brilliance.

    Thanks – I should have just googled it! 🙄

    Watched the first 4 episodes (S1) last night. I realised then that Id watched the tramp ep before.

    Agree. Like a modern day Laurel & Hardy sketch but menacing & darker.

    Just a bit of nerd triv. An ornament of a Hare appears in every episode.

    Just a bit of nerd triv – you say that in every Inside No9 thread. 😀
