Steve Pemberton and Reece Shearsmith's award-winning anthology series 'Inside No. 9' returns to BBC Two and BBC iPlayer this Christmas with a a special festive film.
In the episode, entitled 'The Bones Of St. Nicholas', they are joined by guest stars Shobna Gulati and Simon Callow, they serve up a disturbingly spooky Christmas story set in a mysterious church. 'Inside No. 9' will premiere on BBC Two and BBC iPlayer.
Dr. Jasper Parkway has booked an overnight stay in a reputedly haunted church on Christmas Eve. However, much to his dismay, he is soon joined by unwanted guests Pierce and Posy, who have even brought their own sleeping bags. Together with the eccentric warden Dick, it doesn’t look like Jasper is going to be lonely this Christmas. Even though sherry, biscuits and Yuletide phantoms are on offer, why is Jasper so keen to be left to his own devices?
'Inside No. 9' often dives into supernatural themes, with episodes revolving around a Victorian séance, witch trials, and even a pair of schoolgirls who find themselves babysitting the Devil. Not to mention the spooky 2018 Halloween special, a one-of-a-kind live broadcast.
The seventh series of the dark comedy show aired on the BBC back in the spring, but we haven't had a Christmas offering since 'The Devil Of Christmas' back in 2016. In the episode a director talked about his old horror film, in which the Devonshires arrive at the alpine chalet for a holiday in 1977. The caretaker, Klaus, tells them about a local legend of Krampus, the Devil of Christmas.
The BBC have also announced several other ghostly treats airing this Christmas including a trip to Button House where the 'Ghosts' are getting together for a special festive episode. Plus Mark Gatiss brings his latest ghost story for Christmas, 'Count Magnus', to the BBC. He also stars as Jacob Marley in a stage production of 'A Christmas Carol' in his own retelling of Dickens' classic winter ghost story.
'Inside No. 9' is produced by BBC Studios Comedy Productions for BBC Two and BBC iPlayer. It was written by Reece Shearsmith and Steve Pemberton, directed by George Kane and produced by Kim Crowther. The Commissioning Editor for the BBC is Gregor Sharp. The Executive Producers for BBC Studios are Adam Tandy and Josh Cole.
