The first episode we can expect to see is entitled ‘The Bill’ and centres around a group of friends arguing over who is going to pay the bill at a restaurant. It stars Philip Glenister and Jason Watkins alongside series writers/creators Reece Shearsmith and Steve Pemberton.

Following ‘The Bill’ there will be four more episodes (as festive special ‘The Devil of Christmas’ counted as episode 1 of the new series) and in typical Inside No. 9 style, not a lot has been revealed about them so far.

What we do know is that one episode revolves around solving a cryptic crossword in the office of a university academic and features Hunderby‘s Alexandra Roach; another is about a man who finds a shoe and becomes obsessed with finding out who it belongs to; and the other two take place at a karaoke party and in an art gallery after dark. TVO regulars appearing across the series include Mat Baynton and Morgana Robinson.

Here’s a picture of Keeley Hawes in what we think must be the shoe-related episode:
