‘Inside No. 9’ episode guide

Posted Filed under

For six weeks, you are invited into six very different No. 9s, where the ordinary and mundane rub shoulders with the extraordinary and macabre. From a grand country house where an innocent game of Sardines leads to some chilling revelations, to a blood-soaked actor’s dressing room in London’s West End, or the one-bedroom flat of an apparently happy primary school teacher – these unpredictable tales feature high comedy, unexpected twists, and claustrophobic horror by turns.

> Buy Inside No. 9 on DVD on Amazon.

Inside No. 9‘s cast includes Gemma Arterton, Conleth Hill, Katherine Parkinson, Anna Chancellor, Anne Reid, Tamsin Grieg, Julian Rhind-Tutt, Marc Wootton and Sophie Thompson.

It is the day of Rebecca and Jeremy’s engagement party, and everyone (well, nearly everyone) has turned up to the old house to wish them well. Except that one of the bedrooms – the one with all the old baggage in it – has been left unlocked…


Episode 2: ‘A Quiet Night In’

Wednesday 12 February 2014, 10pm

In this silent farce, we enter the beautiful, modernist home of Gerald & Sabrina… a beautiful home with lots of beautiful things in it. Beautiful things of extreme value. The kind of things that might just become the target of an audacious criminal enterprise.

When cat-burglars Ray and Eddie decide to break into the luxury house, they have to dodge all manner of obstacles – including the warring couple that live there – to get their hands on a priceless painting.


Episode 3: ‘Tom & Gerri’

Tom is a primary school teacher with ambitious ideas of becoming an author. When he tries to repay a good turn from a late-night caller, he gradually becomes the victim of his own generosity.

As time passes, his new friend – Migg – becomes an increasingly dominant part of Tom’s life, threatening his relationship with his aspiring actress girlfriend, Gerri.

This week, we arrive at an unassuming suburban house on an unassuming suburban street. Tamsin is an extremely unwell little girl, so Jan and Graham have asked children’s charity WishmakerUK to brighten up their daughter’s birthday.

The charity is bringing along a very special guest indeed: none other than the legendary singer – and Jan’s personal favourite – Frankie J Parsons! But events at the party soon take a sudden turn for the worse.


Episode 5: ‘The Understudy’

Successful West End actor Tony Warner’s tour-de-force performance as Macbeth is the toast of The Duke Of Cambridge Theatre, but his overbearing personality makes life hell for those he works with.

It would be very bad luck indeed if he was suddenly indisposed in some way – although not for Jim, his ever-hopeful understudy, of course…


Episode 6: ‘The Harrowing’

This week, we knock at our darkest door, where brother and sister Hector and Tabitha never go out and have to live in a carefully refrigerated gothic mansion. But tonight they have an event so special that a babysitter is required.

For Katy, the offer of £88 in the hand is too good to turn down. And, what could be so difficult about baby-sitting Andras, Hector and Tabitha’s bedridden, disabled, elderly brother, whose bedroom is up on the top floor of the house?
