Be invited into some very different No. 9s, where the ordinary and mundane rub shoulders with the extraordinary and macabre. From a grand country house where a game of 'sardines' leads to some chilling revelations in a wardrobe; to a very oddly haunted house; to a blood-soaked actor's dressing room in London's West End; to the flat of an apparently happy primary school teacher who becomes the victim of a good deed; these unpredictable tales feature high comedy and claustrophobic horror by turns.

A long, long time ago I didn't like The League Of Gentlemen. A friend tried to introduce me to it as season two started up, and I wasn't impressed. Thankfully, I gave it another chance, and I started with the very first episode.

From then on, I was a fan of all involved. Steve Pemberton and Reece Shearsmith, AND the whole league (to be fair), have given fans some glorious TV over the years. Inside No. 9 is another fine slice of pitch black comedy that often borders on the horrific. Which is what they do best.

Linked by the titular location, although it'a different location in each episode it is always a Number 9, these six episodes are all fantastic short films, and all quite different.

Tom & Gerri may be the best episode of UK television I've seen in some time, and I won't say any more about it, for fear of spoiling anything. The fact that it comes after the enjoyable first episode, Sardines, and the cracking second episode, A Quiet Night In, may leave viewers feeling that things dip from there, but Last Gasp, The Understudy and The Harrowing are almost as good. In fact, The Harrowing would make for a cracking tale to watch on Halloween night.

Director David Kerr handles everything capably, but this is all about the brilliant, warped minds of Shearsmith and Pemberton, and I hope they give us even more tales from behind closed doors soon. Because I'll always look forward to whatever they do.
