Inside No. 9 The Bill series 3
The anthology format continues as before, each film being set in a different location, the style and tone changing each week, combining a different mix of horror, thriller, drama and comedy, always aiming to surprise, delight, unnerve and amuse in equal measure. With ambitious production values and screenplays that tell original stories in ways which most sitcom and drama series do not attempt, the third series will continue to celebrate the craft of the stand-alone comedy drama.
New settings for the series include a restaurant after closing time, an art gallery, a karaoke booth and even the doors of some very ordinary-seeming houses reveal some of the best and most intriguing stories because once you’re inside number nine, anything can happen.
Philip and Jason Watkins star in this first of five films.
A night out with your friends at a local restaurant, some tapas and a few drinks after the badminton – sounds like a lot of fun. But ultimately, of course, somebody has to pay. Tuesday 21st February 22.00 BBC Two
