Then again, on the other hand, one must not even come close to giving away spoilers where Inside No. 9 is concerned.

TV: Inside No. 9: The Referee's A W***er

I was lucky enough to see the first episode in the fifth series of Inside No. 9 at a special screening at the BFI in London last month. I didn't take any notes for a few reasons.

TV Review: The South Bank Show – Reece Shearsmith & Steve Pemberton

Receiving the full-length documentary treatment is certainly an accolade for Inside No 9 creators Reece Shearsmith and Steve Pemberton. The challenge for Melvyn Bragg and the makers is how to condense what is now a pretty lengthy career into a single one-hour (including ads) programme.
