Look out for a spoiler-free episode review from us coming soon.
As for the rest of the new series, the episode ‘Bernie Clifton’s Dressing Room’ is about an old comedy double act reuniting for one last show after 30 years apart and ‘Once, Removed’ is related to moving house. The titles of the remaining episodes are listed as ‘Tempting Fate’, ‘To Have and To Hold’ and ‘And the Winner Is…’ and little is known about these so far.
Here’s an image from ‘Tempting Fate’ though…
If you’d like to watch any past episodes in the meantime, the BBC is putting Inside No. 9 series 1, 2 and 3 on iPlayer from 16th December. And of course, Reece and Steve can be seen in new episodes of The League of Gentlemen airing on 18th, 19th and 20th December.
