Inside No 9

Series 1 - 2. A Quiet Night In

Radio Times
Review by:
Jack Seale

Reece Shearsmith and Steve Pemberton are superb comic actors and ace gag-writers, but what makes them precious is their willingness to attempt difficult concepts, because they know that if it works they'll have something really special.

Last week we spent half the episode inside a wardrobe; this one-off story roams around the house of the week, a glass-walled millionaire mansion. Denis Lawson is at home, arguing with his wife (Oona Chaplin) and oblivious to the presence of two inept cat-burglars (Shearsmith and Pemberton). As they try to steal from him, there are near misses, pratfalls, murder and farce, all beautifully choreographed. But no dialogue.

About this programme

2/6. Gerald and Sabrina's modernist home has lots of beautiful things in it of extremely high value. So 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 who live there - to get their hands on a priceless painting. Starring Denis Lawson and Oona Chaplin.
