News: Inside No 9 Teams Up With Guardian for Cryptic Crossword Coup

The third episode of the current series of Inside No 9 pulled off a remarkable trick on the day of its transmission with the help of the Guardian.

The episode, The Riddle of the Sphinx, told the sinister story of cross and double cross and featured Steve Pemberton as a devious Cambridge Academic and crossword compiler known as Sphinx. As the programme panned out, successive answers were filled in on a giant crossword grid in his study.


TV Review: Inside No 9 – The Riddle of the Sphinx

Is The Riddle of the Sphinx the best-ever Inside No 9? It is certainly the cleverest. Too clever for words one could even say. How much you relish it may, however, depend on how much of a cruciverbalist you are.


TV Review: Inside No 9 - The Bill, 10pm, BBC2

It’s that time again. When critics try to wrestle with writing about the brilliant Inside No 9 without giving away any spoilers. And times are even harder now. In the past one could give reveals away after the broadcast as it would be hard to see the programme unless it was repeated. Now that a viewing is always only a click away even reviews should keep their lips sealed.

What appealed to you about Inside No.9?

First and foremost working with Reece and Steve.  I’d taken part in Psychoville in a previous incarnation - I’ve always loved their work and love working with them. The particular Inside No.9 that I did, The Bill, it’s like a beautifully constructed little play for television. It’s got a great mix of characters and surprising plots - all those things that they do so brilliantly. So that was what was attractive.
