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.

TV Preview: Inside No. 9 – The Trial of Elizabeth Gadge, BBC2

Another dramatic tonal gear change in this fantastic series this week. And also a change of period, with writers Reece Shearsmith and Steve Pemberton taking centre stage in The Trial of Elizabeth Gedge, set during the witch trials of the 17th Century.

Shearsmith and Pemberton play Warren and Clarke (decide for yourselves if that’s a homage to the late actor), who are called in to oversee a trial in the village of Little Happens. Is Elizabeth Gadge (Ruth Sheen) a sorceress in league with the devil or just a smutty old hag?

TV Preview: Inside No. 9 – The Twelve Days Of Christine, BBC2

The co-star of this week’s Inside No. 9, Tom Riley, recently tweeted that it was “maybe the greatest half hour of TV I’ve ever been lucky enough to be in”. Actors are not unfamiliar with the art of hyperbole, so perhaps we should take that with a wheelbarrow full of salt. On the other hand I think he might just be right.

After being harshly overlooked in numerous end-of-year awards thingies, it’s been nice to see the first series of Inside No 9 finally picking up some accolades this week. The series of six self-contained playlets by Reece Shearsmith and Steve Pemberton picked up prizes at the Chortle Awards and the Royal Television Society Awards and now returns for six new comic chillers with a twist. No pressure then.

Preview: Inside No 9: The Understudy, BBC2

A striking return to form for Inside No 9 this week with The Understudy, which is not set in a house for once, but in dressing room number 9. Steve Pemberton very much takes centre stage at the start as Tony Warner, a grand, egocentric Shakespearean actor trying to stay off the wagon while starring in Macbeth. Reece Shearsmith is his understudy, biding his time quietly for his big break.
