Inside No 9
BBC Two, 10pm
Fans of cryptic crosswords will revel in this fiendishly clever episode of Steve Pemberton and Reece Shearsmith’s twisted comedy anthology. Alexandra Roach plays a woman who breaks into the residence of an eminent Oxford professor (Pemberton), who sets the student paper’s cryptic crossword. She claims to feel intellectually inferior to her boyfriend, so wants some pointers in solving the puzzle to impress him. He offers to teach her a few tricks, but, of course, it’s not as simple as that. Kudos too for cramming in more jokes than the average sitcom. “I teach wild creature without hospital building (12).” Any thoughts?
