Inside No 9 (BBC Two series)

Jason will guest star. I have never seen this, but from the awards it has won, it looks like it's quite good.

I have watched this and it is an amazing comedy programme. The premise is that each stand alone episode is based around somwhere that is labled No 9 (a house, a dressing room et al). David Morrissey was amaing in the one of the corrupt football referee, and Jane Horrocks was in the episode that was the most scariest piece of UK tv I have ever seen, based around a call centre and spent the rest of the night with the light on.

This is something that Jason will revel in.

Here are links to some clips.

You will get a feel for the show.

Thanks for the info and clips, Annie. :hug It has never been aired in Norway. But I saw that the DVDs are available, so I hope the new season will be available for me to get hold of too. :D

Me too; It is a wonderful mix of humour and horror which I think Jason and us will enjoy.

It's a very good series. If you have ever heard of the League of Gentlemen (a comedy group and show from some time ago on BBC TV and radio), the writers of Inside No. 9 are two of them, Reece Shearsmith and Steve Pemberton. The League of Gentlemen was famous for its black humour.

The best Inside No. 9 episode for me was one starring Denis Lawson in a house almost entirely made of glass, called A Quiet Night In. It's a silent movie about a break-in, with perfect timing as the participants all avoid each other.

It will be great to see Jason in one of these!

I have never seen that episode with Dennis Lawson. One other thing, The League of Gentleman was phenominal and Mark Gatiss was the third member of the team (he went on to Sherlock and Dr Who) In fact all three were in Dr Who. Shearsmith was also great in A Field in England.

I am so excited by this news though.

The David Morrissey episode called The Referee's A W***** is a surreal funny episode. Do not watch Cold Comfort as the first one as it scared the hell out of me.
