Steve Pemberton and Reece Shearsmith return for a special edition of the comic anthology.

It’s special because not only because it is the 25th episode, and that this dark comedy will be especially scary for Halloween, but it is being filmed live, so if anything does go wrong, you will know. Not surprisingly, little is known of the plot. What we do know is that the story follows a man named Arthur Flitwick (Pemberton), who finds an abandoned mobile phone in a graveyard, and mistakenly tries to contact the original owner. Shearsmith plays a vicar, while there is also a guest performance from Stephanie Cole.

Inside No. 9 is on BBC Two at 22.00.
