Inside No. 9

Ear Candy: Inside Inside No. 9

So, if ever the fans of a TV series might have pleaded for a podcast that deconstructs each episode, Inside Inside No. 9 answers that call.

Becoming even more granular than the series itself, the two creators and stars, Reece Shearsmith and Steve Pemberton, dissect each episode after it has aired.

Every week, the masters of mis­direction are joined by a different member of the Inside No. 9 team to talk about the making of the programmes.

Cast announced for sixth series of Inside No. 9

The cast for the upcoming six-part anthology series will include Sian Clifford (Fleabag), Adrian Dunbar (Line of Duty), Paterson Joseph (Peep Show), Lindsay Duncan (A Discovery of Witches), Kevin Bishop (Porridge), Nick Mohammed (Intelligence), Bhavna Limbachia (Coronation Street), Sarah Parish (W1A), and Gemma Whelan (The End of the F***ing World), with more names to be confirmed.

Inside No. 9 renewed for two more series

Creators Reece Shearsmith and Steve Pemberton will stick to their award-winning formula of six stand-alone half hour films, full of twists, turns and genre bends.

They said: “Little did we know when we started Inside No. 9 in 2014 that we would end up with as many episodes of it as Countryfile.

“We are delighted and exhausted in equal measure at the prospect of two more series-worth of tall tales and fearsome fables.”
