Fans of delightfully macabre TV will be thrilled to know that Reece Shearsmith and Steve Pemberton are back with another instalment of Inside No. 9, the BAFTA-winning series. Below we explain how you can watch Inside No. 9 season 7 online now, and 100% FREE on BBC iPlayer.
Debuting in 2014, Inside No. 9 is an anthology series, and – as we’ve come to expect from the duo responsible for The League of Gentlemen – it’s perversely funny, full of twists that will blind-side even the most media-savvy viewer.
Only the number 9 links each episode; otherwise, there’s a different cast, setting, and story. Past instalments featured Helen McCrory in a gothic mansion, David Morrissey in a football locker room, and Killing Eve’s Fiona Shaw enjoying a Private View at a swanky gallery.
This season, expect to see Mark Gatiss in a story about four old friends boating on an isolated lake – great fun until old resentments start to bubble up. Other guest actors will include the brilliant Jessica Hynes (Spaced), Jason Isaacs, and Sophie Okonedo.
Ready for six terrifically taut tales? Then read our guide below for how to watch Inside No. 9 season 7 online from anywhere now.
