No.'s up (for an award)

I've been saving up episodes of the fourth series of Inside No. 9 as a treat - so it seems fitting to have finally decided to indulge myself on the day that, unbeknownst to me, the series was named Comedy Of The Year 2017. That's despite the fact that it's been screened entirely in 2018, and that not all of the episodes have even aired yet  - but, to be honest, if the whole series is as good as 'Zanzibar', then it's on course to be Comedy Of The Century.

Congratulations to the show's creators Steve Pemberton and Reece Shearsmith, who you might have feared would be out of inspiration after masterminding the long-awaited pre-Christmas return of The League Of Gentlemen. We needn't have worried.

I'm assuming it relates to series 3 which if memory serves was broadcast last March. The fact that they've had two series of this and League in the past year - you've got to admire the work-rate and high standards.

And I personally think Bernie Clifton's Dressing Room is one of their best ever. Preferred to Zanzibar, but both great.

Ah, yes - third series. That would explain it!
