Fantastic ! as always, loved the prop spotting and love letter to the bizarre. If you haven’t seen it yet you won’t be disappointed.

I belly-laughed hard when proto-Andy Nymans' first instinct was to murderously bosh him in the nut, rather than peek his secrets!

You two are so good are creating and portraying these vile and tragic characters. The look on Mr. Pemberton's face at the crack of the whisky bottle cap, oh man.

I had not seen anything of this new programme before, but had enjoyed your "The League of Gentlemen". I will be watching more now.

Thoroughly recommended.

There is a lot of magic to Inside No. 9. The writing is extraordinary. It is quite a trick to maintain this level of interesting, absorbing scripts over an anthology, and the talent they keep pulling out of the hat (in addition to Steve & Reece) is just astonishing: from Felicity Kendall and Fiona Shaw to Derek Jacobi and David Bamber (in a role that will surprise!) I am treating myself to one episode each day and, sad to say, I'm nearing the end of the fifth series. The least episode is quite worthwhile, most are simply superb, and two are among the best things I have seen in a very long time indeed. And, if you are looking for more straight-up magic, with a hook, do keep an eye out for Mr Jelly.

This is excellent viewing.

Massive congratulations to you and your wicked crew, Papa L.

It’s not a golden hare, but a BAFTA’s still alright.

Looking forward to catching up when your new season hits BritBox!

Bizarre Regards,
Perkins

Another superb season, Reece, every tale different but sublime in its own special way. All are superb, but three deserve special mention...

'Last Night of the Proms' opens far more cans of worms than a first viewing might suggest, with many dark trails for the mind to follow.

I am sure 'How Do You Plead?' will be a favourite here. Its premise immediately suggests a bizarre scenario which should be evident and usable to every visitor to this forum.

For me personally, the highlight was one which people will probably love or hate, depending upon personal tastes: 'Wuthering Heist' I adore it! Why? Maybe it's my love for masks and clowning. Maybe it's my love of razor sharp word play. Or maybe it's because Gemma Whelan, our narrator, has me drooling...

But a magnificent collection all round.

Ah thanks so much! Yes - if there was an episode that this forum should watch first - it would have to be “How Do You Plead” I guess…. probably my favourite from series six. So glad you enjoyed “Wuthering Heist” though! Was great fun to film, and “Last Night of the Proms” is the truly horrific one of the series!

Perfect! Enjoy the spoils and thanks for the heads up. Also, really been enjoying the Inside Inside No. 9 podcast. Great insight. Now on can get caught up on both.

Headed back inside…

Thank you Kotah! The Witchfinder’s episode is probably my favourite of them all.
