If you’re wondering why we’re not billing this as a comedy, that’s because there’s almost nothing funny here. Instead, it’s an utterly superb piece of drama, imbued with an increasing sense of dread – with the almost unguessable sting in the tail that this series delivers so well.
Little should be said about the plot other than that The 12 Days of Christine is set in flat No 9 of a tower block and it begins with a woman dressed as a nun and a man in fireman gear tumbling onto a settee after copping off at a fancy dress party. Hunky Tom Riley is Adam and Sheridan Smith gives another multi-faceted, stunning performance as the troubled Christine. Sitcom legend Michele Dotrice plays her mum.
Writers Steve Pemberton and Reece Shearsmith pop up in minor but telling roles. And Pemberton deploys Con te partiro on the soundtrack, as he once did in Benidorm – but with devastating effect.
Christine Clarke brings a man back to her flat from a New Year's Eve party and her life immediately starts to unravel. Who is the terrifying stranger who keeps appearing in the apartment at night? Darkly comic tale by Steve Pemberton and Reece Shearsmith, starring Sheridan Smith, Tom Riley and Michele Dotrice.
