There are some zingy funny lines early on, otherwise this edition leads us far away from comedy. The Riddle of the Sphinx is a gripping, at times horrific, tale of revenge, with hints of Anthony Schaffer’s play Sleuth and much to admire for lovers of fiendish crosswords.
One stormy night Professor Squires (Steve Pemberton, swish in a silk dressing gown) is visited in his college rooms by a strange young woman (No Offence’s Alexandra Roach). Squires is an award-winning crossword setter known as the Sphinx – but for once he doesn’t have the answer to the riddle.
Nina thinks Professor Squires has all the answers when, actually, neither has a clue what the future holds. With deadly intent, they commence a battle of wits to solve the puzzle and reveal the guardian of their fate. Darkly comic tale, starring Alexandra Roach, Steve Pemberton and Reece Shearsmith.
