Inside No.9 is a new set of darkly comic tales from Steve Pemberton and Reece Shearsmith, best known for The League Of Gentlemen and Psychoville. For six weeks, you are invited into six very different No.9s, where the ordinary and mundane rub shoulders with the extraordinary and macabre.
From a grand country house where an innocent game of Sardines leads to some chilling revelations, to a blood-soaked actor’s dressing room in London’s West End, or the one-bedroom flat of an apparently happy primary school teacher – these unpredictable tales feature high comedy, unexpected twists, and claustrophobic horror by turns.
In Sardines, it is the day of Rebecca and Jeremy’s engagement party, and everyone (well, nearly everyone) has turned up to the old house to wish them well. Except that one of the bedrooms – the one with all the old baggage in it – has been left unlocked…
