I TALK TO Steve Pemberton & Reece Shearsmith

After a tease at Christmas with a spectacular episode, Inside No. 9 is returning to BBC Two for the rest of series three, so I caught up with writers, creators, actors (and my personal comedy heroes) Steve Pemberton and Reece Shearsmith to find out more.

With ambitious production values and screenplays that tell original stories in ways which most sitcom and drama series do not attempt, the third series of Inside No. 9 will continue to celebrate the craft of the stand-alone comedy drama.


The anthology format continues as before, each film being set in a different location, the style and tone changing each week, combining a different mix of horror, thriller, drama and comedy, always aiming to surprise, delight, unnerve and amuse in equal measure.
