The BBC has released the first clip from the upcoming festive episode of Inside No. 9.
Written by and starring Reece Shearsmith and Steve Pemberton, BBC Two’s anthology comedy series launched in February 2014 and is returning for a third season this winter.
‘The Devil Of Christmas’ will air at 10pm on Tuesday 27 December on BBC Two and appears to be shot in the 4:3 videotape style of an ’80s episode of Tales of the Unexpected.
Watch the clip, in which Julien (Pemberton) dismisses Klaus’ (Shearsmith) warning, but Kathy (guest star Jessica Raine) isn’t so sure….
The official synopsis for ‘The Devil Of Christmas’ reads: “It is Austria, Krampusnacht, December 1977. Julian Devonshire (Steve Pemberton), his pregnant wife Kathy (Jessica Raine), their son Toby and mother in law Celia (Rula Lenska) arrive at the alpine chalet for a family holiday.
“They are shown around by Klaus (Reece Shearsmith) who tells the family about the local legend of The Devil Of Christmas. All the good children are given gifts by St. Nicholas, and all the bad ones are punished by the demonic Krampus. But who has been good, and who has been bad?”
