“I’m not a dwarf!”

This week we’re watching Series 2 of Steve Pemberton and Reece Shearsmith’s dark comedy anthology Inside No. 9, concentrating first on the wet-your-pants-scary “Séance Time” which had the emotionally available Rachael slamming her laptop shut in terror.

In the second half of the show we move on to discuss perhaps the most talked-about episode of series 2, “The 12 Days of Christine”, which has the team waxing lyrical about the outstanding class Sheriden Smith brings to this beautifully written and moving episode.

Later, Paul reveals how he once spent a lunch break stalking Reece Shearsmith through the streets of Nottingham, and the team are horrified by Andy’s revelation that he doesn’t find fart jokes funny!

Meanwhile, inspired by Inside No. 9’s claustrophobic settings, Andy takes a look at other TV shows which have attempted so-called “bottle episodes”, including Porridge, One Foot In The Grave, Seinfeld and Red Dwarf.

This week’s scale: Laugh or Scream
