Inside No. 9
Former League Of Gentlemen cohorts Steve Pemberton and Reece Shearsmith team up for their finest work since the League called it a day with this anthology series of six standalone stories. Though tone and character shift dramatically from episode to episode all are united in their embrace of ultra dark comedy and the simple fact that all occur in a location branded Number 9, whether that be a house number, apartment number or other such thing. If you've only got time to check out one of these make it episode two, a comedic tour de force featuring Pemberton and Shearsmith as burglars in a story that plays out almost entirely without dialogue.
