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.

Did You Know?
Many TV series include "bottle" episodes, where all the actions happen in one place or one set. The motivation is often to save money on one episode so more can be spent on others. However, the one linking aspect of this series is that ALL of the programs are "bottle" episodes - a single flat, or room, or a single piece of bedroom furniture. As a result, the original working title for the series was, apparently, "Message in a bottle". See more
