The No 9 we visit this week is the flat of Tom (Reece Shearsmith), a primary school teacher whose disdain for hard work contrasts with his sunny, beautiful girlfriend Gerri (Gemma Arterton) and her efforts to make it as an actress. Tom keeps peeking scornfully out of the window at a homeless man in the street, until circumstance brings the vagrant, Migg (Steve Pemberton), into the flat while Gerri's away on a job. The gimmick of the show is that we never leave No 9, and maybe the persuasive Migg won't, either.
By halfway you'll have confidently announced where it's going, but Shearsmith and Pemberton give their story of how we're all one slip away from the gutter a chilling sense of rising dread. Nobody plays wicked games with the audience more skilfully.
Primary school teacher Tom tries to repay a good turn from a late-night caller, but 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 aspiring actress girlfriend Gerri. Steve Pemberton and Reece Shearsmith star, with Gemma Arterton (Quantum of Solace) and Conleth Hill (Game of Thrones).
