    Re: what tv show have you been watching.

    Been watching at least two episodes of Inside No. 9 from the start.

    Absolutely brilliant! Like a rather sinister and darkly comic twist on Tales of the Unexpected.

    Trespass, Nursery Cryme, Foxtrot and Selling England (and bits of TLLDOB) all still feature regularly on my playlist.
