I enjoyed it very much. Like how they mix the genres and don't rely on unpleasantness all the time. Always inventive and always really well acted is what I really like about Inside No. 9 (though I do love a good bit of horror).

I'm not expecting every episode to be a bloodbath but I do expect something clever and unexpected to happen. The whole lyrics of the songs fitting with the character narratives thing was fine but totally obvious and not an interesting enough of an idea to hang a whole episode on. 

I did enjoy Pemberton's atrocious Brummie accent though.

I thought that was brilliant. One of my favourites from any series. I love the way they ramped up his obsession until it was clear that he wasn't well/something horrible had happened and the ambiguity of whose blood was on his hands after the "they should be together" line. Damn son.

Wow. That was a massive return to form. How much symmetry and identical / matching pairs were there? Incredible efforts.

Loved this shot.

Was the ending 100% clear? Part of me was thinking...was it Ted's blood... or his daughters... when he said "they should be together". Eek. :(

 

Edit: Actually, thinking about it - if the blood was still wet, it's unlikely to have been from Norfolk :(

Was distracted watching it:

So the daughter had a twin that died and was the blood at the end from him murdering the daughter to be with him?

The origin of the blood is not resolved.  It could be the daughter; it could be the fake, shoe owner; it could be both.

 

Whatever the answer the outcome is grim.

An excellent episode.

See, I didn't like this one either - I thought it developed too quickly and the absurdity / darkness balance was all over the place. Also (and without spoiling anything) I think it'd be pretty easy to parody the show now, thanks to episodes like this - it has clear parallels in the first two seasons.

 

I've not really been taken with any of this season's episodes, I've realised - the crossword one is my favourite so far, but even that seemed over-egged (which may have been the point).

 

I think maybe the show's become a little too over-confident and, as a result, a little less inventive - it's obviously well-crafted TV, but I feel like it's resting on its laurels this time round. Rather than surprising me, it's reminding me of what I enjoyed about the earlier seasons, which isn't enough. But the final episodes have been my favourites previously, so I'm going to keep going to the end.

Just started catching up on the third series and The Bill just didn't do it for me unfortunately. The main twist just flat out doesn't work and causes it all to come crashing down in a mess of implausibilities. A twist like that needs to be airtight and it simply wasn't. Disappointing, I expect a bit more from them.

I suppose. I thought it was too much of a leap. Definitely the weakest episode of the series. 

 

It's had some good moments, but I would easily say this has been the weakest series out of the three.

I enjoyed it.

Agree that the final twist was far fetched, but it was clearly implied that he was on the brink of escaping just before the injection, however the leap to then claim the body parts as his own art installation - plus the surgical skills to remove someone else's heart... lol - but it was fun TV. 

 

Personally, my favourite was Diddle Diddle Dumpling - i watched this one a second time, there's so much clever stuff in it.

I was probably expecting too much, but the story was at best just a very average slasher movie one. There was some foreshadowing in how he explained what 'collage' meant, but the twist didn't really feel like a twist at all, just unexplained. It also didn't feel sinister enough or horrific. And whilst I get that they were, to an extent, taking the piss out of pretentious art, the story was just tired and clichéd. 

 

Also, how did Peter Kaye's character fit into the grand scheme of things?
