Inside No 9, Nine Lives Kat, review: too clever by half

  • Inside No 9 (BBC Two) is the TV show that dares to be clever. It’s certainly earned the right to aim high – six series of self-contained, half-hour Tales of the Unexpected-style plays have yielded some of the best TV of the last decade. What’s more, in an age ruled by big budget dystopian sci-fi or men on horses with swords, Inside No 9 remains wonderfully idiosyncratic. There’s nothing else like it.
