I caught an episode called Cold Comfort last night. It's billed a black humour but it I just found it very disturbing (though brilliant).
Should I watch the rest of them? I hadn't heard of this series before.

Yes! They are brilliant. Some are better than others but they're all well worth watching. Very very dark and very clever.

I've only seen 2 of them and will catch up with the rest very slowly - I don't think it's something I could binge watch without nightmares!
The first episode is good - Sardines I think it's called. Now that really is disturbing. It's brilliantly written and acted and the last 5 minutes will really stick with you.

Some are definitely better than others first one I saw was Private View which I lol'd hard at perfect black humour. The 12 days of Christine was just sad to me.

Half, I didn't get the end of Private View. SPOILER!!!

Did he kill the killer dinnerlady? How? What did it mean –did he just do it out of self-defence or was he also a killer already?

HalfShellHero Wed 05-Apr-17 13:26:08

He killed her out of self defence I assume and put her heart in the display..that's how I interpret it i.e heartless critic.

SapphireStrange Wed 05-Apr-17 13:28:02

Ah, I see. I'd forgotten/missed the 'heartless critic' bit.

HalfShellHero Wed 05-Apr-17 13:53:17

I loved peter kay, I've spilt' mi' ritz ! grin

DrAbbyYates Wed 05-Apr-17 15:06:02

They are brilliant. The writing is superb.

The 12 Days of Christine is on iplayer at the moment and is one of the very best ones IMHO. Incredibly moving.

Yes, I love Inside Number 9. They have put the first two series up on Netflix (along with League of Gentlemen and Pyschoville, hurrah!!), we rewatched them the other day. Excellent writing and cast. 12 days of Christine is a stand out episode. It makes me cry every time.

SapphireStrange Wed 05-Apr-17 16:08:21

Psychoville is wonderful. I've never forgiven the great British public for not watching it, causing it to be dropped.

The one with Sheridan smith is so powerful. It played on my mind for a long time afterwards, watched again the other night, still fantastic.

Tenementfunster Wed 05-Apr-17 16:19:11

The 12 days of Christine absolutely did me in. I cried buckets.
The silent/mime episode is great

SapphireStrange Wed 05-Apr-17 16:23:00

The silent/mime episode is great Yes! Absolute genius.

DrAbbyYates Wed 05-Apr-17 16:30:55

12 Days of Christine is the Sheridan Smith one. It's wonderful.

HalfShellHero Wed 05-Apr-17 20:40:08

The shoe one is wierd , how I did laugh hard at the questions he asked the 'shoe owner' can you identify the tread! A b and c grin ...very dark good ending though. The karaoke was a bit meh, ...

DrAbbyYates Wed 05-Apr-17 21:24:23

I watched the shoe one for a second time as DH hadn't seen it, and it is so very cleverly put together on a second watch. The house is full of pairs of things, and the shots were really carefully composed to make the pairs frame the characters.

ILookedintheWater Thu 06-Apr-17 09:58:50

We watched 'A private view' last night.
Will seek out 12 Days of Christine

SapphireStrange Thu 06-Apr-17 10:16:23

I just rememberd the one about the crossword setter. Really intricate, dark and clever.

cheesydoesit Thu 06-Apr-17 14:18:17

Ooh yes, that one is great!

RitaMills Thu 06-Apr-17 15:44:06

I absolutely love this, so clever and I always look forward to the twist at the end.

12 Days of Christine is very good, I welled up a little at the end of that one.

Lottapianos Thu 06-Apr-17 15:50:02

Cold Comfort is my favourite episode. It's very disturbing and gets under your skin. Theres a real sense of dread all the way through it despite some very funny dialogue. The final twist is only revealed in the last few seconds and i think i actually screamed out loud when i watched it for the first time. Truly brilliant stuff

The silent episode from series 1 is brilliant too

I would imagine that Inside No 9 is something you either absolutely love or absolutely hate

IvankaTrudeau Thu 06-Apr-17 15:56:14

I rewatched Cold Comfort last night. They're definitely something you can rewatch to get all the bits you missed the first time.

Did you see the xmas special one? I was very shockshock at the end of that. They're all dark but that one in particular.

I also liked the birthday party one? From the 1st/2nd series? What was the name of that?

Lottapianos Thu 06-Apr-17 15:59:16

Yes Ivanka, the Xmas special one had a horrible reveal at the end. Took me ages to get to sleep after watching it

I need to rewatch series 1

CrumpettyTree Thu 06-Apr-17 16:01:53

I loved Sardines and Twelve Days of Christine was brilliant. I don't know if i can bring myself to watch it again though. It's a bit scary/harrowing. Brilliant though.
