Inside No. 9 renewed for series 5

Louisa Mellor Feb 6, 2018

BBC Two has renewed its excellent anthology Inside No. 9 for a fifth series. Top work all round...

Inside No. 9 is stunning television. It's ever surprising, clever and inventive, and to judge by its excellent fourth series, which concludes tonight at 10pm on BBC Two, it's only getting better.

Knowing a good thing when it has one, the BBC has renewed the anthology show for a fifth series, six new episodes of which are due to air in 2019. Tremendous news.

The official press bumf promises that series five will "stay true to the show's anthology format, with each episode bringing an original story, a new raft of characters and surprising twists" with yet more top-notch guest stars. Adam Tandy will once again produce.

Here's what series creators Steve Pemberton and Reece Shearsmith had to say on the renewal:

4.5 And The Winner Is…

“What’s more important, awards or a massive audience?” I asked Inside No. 9’s creators in 2017. Simultaneously, without missing a beat, “Awards!” they answered to a chorus of laughs. “Can’t put an audience on your shelf!” said Pemberton.

However serious that answer, it’s not a stretch to see why TV awards-giving might be ripe for satire here. Inside No. 9 has won a number of prizes (Rose d’Or, Rts, Writers’ Guild, Banff Rockies, comedy.co.uk…), but there’s still a baffling gap where a Bafta might be. It’s a matter of genre, Reece Shearsmith suggested. As a dramatic comedy/comedic drama, Inside No. 9

In series one’s The Understudy, Inside No. 9 gave us an updated take on Macbeth. Here, Reece Shearsmith and Steve Pemberton put their own twist on Shakespearean comedy with an episode set entirely in a hotel corridor and written entirely in iambic pentameter, the clever sods. Regular brilliance clearly wasn’t presenting these two enough of a challenge.

It’s a challenge they pull off with relish. The writing’s smart and self-aware (“Like this iambic foot, I’m stressed, you’re not”) while the gags are a bawdy delight. Shakespeare never rhymed ‘bum’ with ‘Magnus Magnusson’, but you know he would have done,

“I didn’t come here to make peace. I came here to make trouble.”

This is one of those instances that after a period of intense action, Vikings wisely steps away and takes a moment to breathe as each of the major players reevaluate their individual situations and make plans to strike out in new directions. While the overall intent of the story arcs remains the same, The Plan sets out to remind viewers that these are men and women of action, and once again manages to provide a reasonable amount of attention to each.

The Black Hood is dead. Long live the Black Hood.

With Riverdale not returning until the middle of next month, the mid-season finale was seemingly custom-made to keep people talking in the interim. Mission accomplished then, as there is a lot to chew on here. The biggest revelation was that Joseph Conway/Mr. Svenson was himself the Black Hood, punishing the town for their sins to restore the cosmic justice that he unbalanced after causing a lynch mob to bury an innocent man alive years earlier.

Or is he?

Louisa Mellor Dec 13, 2017

We’ve taken a highlighter to this year’s Christmas and New Year TV schedules and circled what we’ll be watching this festive season…

Amid the cosy repeats and cranberry-stuffed cookery shows on TV over the next few weeks are a few gems. There’s no Sherlock or Charlie Brooker’s TV Wipe this year, but there are plenty of treats, not least the return of The League Of Gentlemen for a three-part anniversary series and Peter Capaldi’s last hurrah in the Tardis in the Doctor Who Christmas episode.

8 ways The Twilight Zone influenced modern TV and film

Louisa Mellor Nov 25, 2017

The Twilight Zone casts a long shadow over today’s film and TV. We salute the legacy left by Rod Serling’s seminal series…

“Damn near immortal” is how Stephen King described The Twilight Zone in his 1981 study of creepy fiction Danse Macabre, and who could argue with that. Like any decent horror monster, Rod Serling’s 1960s anthology series keeps coming back from the grave. Only last week it was announced that CBS is planning to resurrect its award-winning show once again. The new series will be the latest of several revivals over the decades, including an upcoming stage production set to enjoy its world premiere at London’s Almeida Theatre this December.

Johnny English 3 begins production

Back in May it was announced that Rowan Atkinson would be returning to the role of Johnny English for a third movie in the spy comedy series, and now Working Title has officially announced that production is underway with David Kerr (Inside No. 9, A Midsummer Night’s Dream) directing.

A spoof of James Bond, Johnny English began life as a character called Richard Latham in a series of Barclaycard adverts in the 1990s. Atkinson would reprise the role on the big screen in 2003, with a sequel Johnny English Reborn following in 2011. Both proved successful at the box office, grossing a combined $320 million worldwide.

Johnny English 3 is slated for a UK release in October 2018.

Movie Review – The Dark Tapes (2017)

The Dark Tapes, 2017.

Directed by Vincent J. Gustini and Michael McQuown.

Starring Emilia Ares Zoryan, Danielle Baez, Katelyn Bailey, and David Banks.

Synopsis:

Science fiction and the supernatural interchange and interlock in a dark anthology of mystery, superstition, psychopaths, demons and horror.

I’ve probably said this before but I’m not a fan of the found footage horror sub-genre. Despite the occasional few good ones, such as Creep and The Bay (both of which I reviewed in my October Horror series last year) I find most of them to be incredibly dull and repetitive haunted house door slam fests.

However, the sub-genre that I do love in my horror films is when they go down the anthology route, allowing film-makers to tell a variety of different stories, perhaps using different styles and just generally allowing for a greater degree of creativity and variety.

My love of the format has
