Steve Pemberton and Reece Shearsmith return. If their last macabre comedy drama, Psychoville, was slightly weighed down by servicing a tricky overarching storyline, there's no such problem here since this is a series of one-offs, set in a variety of homes that all happen to be number nine on their street.
The opener is confined not just to a house, but to one room in a fusty old family mansion. And mostly, we're in the wardrobe: two grown-up siblings who used to live here (Pemberton and Katherine Parkinson) are celebrating her engagement with a party – and a game of sardines. As more guests squeeze in, everyone gets less and less comfortable, until the bickering turns to bile.
It's a vicious little one-act, one-room play, deftly staged and superbly acted by a cast that also includes Anne Reid, Anna Chancellor, Timothy West and Tim Key.
Anthology of darkly comic tales written by and starring Steve Pemberton and Reece Shearsmith, with each exploring what is going on behind the door of a different residence. The guests arrive for Rebecca and Jeremy's engagement party, but one of the bedrooms - the one with all their old baggage in it - has been left unlocked. With Katherine Parkinson, Timothy West, Anne Reid, Anna Chancellor and Julian Rhind-Tutt.
