REVIEW 'How do you Plead?' is one of Inside No.9's creepiest episodes.

 Having previously appeared (via audio only) in series 3 episode The Devil of Christmas, Derek Jacobi becomes the first guest star to make a second voyage Inside No. 9. This weeks instalment, How Do You Plead? takes place in a lavish penthouse apartment, where a seriously ill man fears that hes approaching the end of his time on earth. 

At the outset of the episode, agitated Webster (Jacobi) has just brought his own birthday party to an abrupt end, rudely dismissed his guests and summoned his trusted nurse, Bedford (Reece Shearsmith), to his side. Apparently, he has been babbling about his old cases and telling everyone that Bedford is the only one who can help him in this time of need. What unfolds is a gripping story of morality, good and evil, with some unexpected twists and turns in its tail.

How Do You Plead? is for the most part a two-hander between Jacobi and Shearsmith, and the dynamic between their characters brings to mind The Dresser  a play (which starred Shearsmith around five years ago) about an ageing actor and his long-suffering assistant. We learn that Webster is a former barrister, known as the lion of the Bailey in his prime, with a winning streak of 45+ years and a mysterious talent for getting even the most obviously guilty individuals off scot-free. Now in palliative care, hes spluttering, swearing and demanding fentanyl, a long way from his glory days. Has he urgently called for his nurse due to some sort of deathbed revelation?

Bedford is around the thirtieth nurse that Webster has got through, and he stands out from his predecessors because he is relatively unphased by his patients bad temper. He is upbeat and unafraid of teasing Webster (at one point telling him that he enjoys taking his temperature as it keeps him quiet for a few seconds) while Webster is in awe of his nurses kindness and ability to keep his cool. I have been known to blurt out fiddlesticks in moments of crisis Bedford responds to an observation that he rarely swears.

 


On the night we meet them, Bedford has cancelled plans at the last minute to attend a friends concert at the Royal Albert Hall so that he can tend to Webster. Youre a better man than me the lift attendant (Steve Pemberton) remarks knowingly as they make their way up to the old mans apartment.

Given this is Inside No. 9, nothing in How Do You Plead? is as clear-cut as it seems and everyone has something to hide. At this stage, Shearsmith and Pemberton know what viewers have come to expect from the show, and theres a nice moment where Bedford, after opening Websters filing cabinet of old case notes, claims that theres a human head inside. Of course its nothing so gruesome, but something from Websters past will be catching up with him before the night is done Theres also mention of a harrowing incident for Bedford which has left him haunted by the image of a choking schoolboy. This gives rise to a scene that puts this episode up there with The Harrowing and Séance Time as one of Inside No. 9s creepiest.

  Inside No.9 Concludes Monday at 9.30pm on BBC Two

How To Get Your Ex Lover/Partner/Boyfriend/Girlfriend/Wife Or Husband Back

I was married for 16 years to a loving mother and wife. We had 2 children together who are now 11 & 13. I reconnected with an old girlfriend from college on Facebook and we began an affair and I left my wife. The woman I had an affair with is a wonderful woman and I love her too and our kids had begun accepting the situation and my wife has kind of moved on, but not in love with the man she is seeing. I thought I fell out of love with my wife and I felt terrible about what I did to her - she is a good woman and I don't know what came over me. I decided to try and get her back and I was recommended to Lord Zakuza for help to get reunited with my wife and within 48 hours after I made contact with Lord Zakuza my wife decided to work things out with me and now we are back together with our children living as one happy family. I really don't know the words to use in appreciation of what Lord Zakuza did for me but I will say thank you sir for reuniting I and my family back. For those in trying times with their marriages or relationship can communicate with LORD ZAKUZA through the below information's.

OMG!! This is certainly a shocking and a genuine Testimony..I visited a forum here on the internet on the 20TH, And i saw a marvelous testimony of this powerful and great Man called Robinson.buckler on the forum..I never believed it, because i never heard nor learnt anything about spiritual powers before.. Not a soul would have been able to influence me about it, not until Robinson.buckler did it for me and restored my marriage and brought my spouse back to me in the same 24 hours..i was truly astonished and shocked when my husband knelt down begging for forgiveness and for me to accept him back.. I am really short of expressions, and i don't know how much to convey my appreciation to you Robinson.buckler, you are a God sent to me and my entire family.. And now i am a joyful woman once again.. here is his: Email:(Robinson.buckler [@] yahoo com) from England City............🌺🌿🌷🌸❤️ 🍀🌹🌼🌻💐

DR. JOROMI IS TRULY A POWERFUL MAN. Contacting Dr Joromi is the best thing that has ever happened to me. My husband left me for another woman for the reason which i know nothing about. I tried every means to get him back but to no avail, all my efforts proved abortive. I was even contemplating suicide. On a lucky day when i was browsing the internet, i came across some amazing testimonies about Dr. Joromi on how he has helped a lot of people with his powerful love spells. I contacted him and explained all my problems to him and he assured me that he will help me. He told me what to do and assured me that my man will be back in 12 hours. I obeyed him and followed the instructions and to my Greatest surprise, my man called me in 12 hours time just as Dr. Joromi said. Thank you Dr Joromi. May the good God continue to bless you.

I’m Bella from New York, United States. I lost my job a few months back after my divorce with my wife. I tried everything positive to make sure I took good care of my kids but all failed, and I was in debt which makes everything worse. I was kicked out of my home and i had to live with my neighbor after pleading with her to allow me to stay with her for some days while I figured out how to get a home which she agreed to, but no one was willing to help anymore. I bumped into this page from google and I was excited about this, then I contacted the hackersBill Dean. I had just $200, so I pleaded with them to help me because of my condition but they never accepted. I believed in this, so I managed to pawn a few things and got $500. I ordered the $10,000 card and I got my card delivered to me by Ups 4 days later. I never believed my eyes! I was excited and upset as well, I managed to withdraw $2000 on the ATM and $2500 the second day. I went to Walmart and a grocery store and bought a couple of things for $3000. The card got blocked the third day and I contacted them and I was told it's a mistake from my end. I’m so happy, I have started all over again and have a good apartment with my kids you can contact him through is via email (officialhackingcompany@gmail.com)Visit there wesbite:https://officialhackingcom.wixsite.com/official

Getting your ex-lover back is very easy when you are working with a real spell caster.
I am not sure I could have done it without you. I contacted a real spell caster that helped me change my husband’s heart to love and want me again, and he really did and now we are very happy together. My husband left me for another woman, This was just 3 years of our marriage. The most painful thing is that I was pregnant with our second baby. I wanted him back. I did everything within my reach to bring him back but all was in vain, I wanted him back so badly because of the love I had for him, I begged him with everything, I made promises but he refused. I explained my problem to my friend and she suggested that I should rather contact a spell caster that could help me cast a spell to bring him back , I had no choice than to try it. I messaged the spell caster called dr unity, and he assured me there was no problem and that everything will be okay before 11 hours. He cast the spell and surprisingly 11 hours later my husband called me. I was so surprised, I answered the call and all he said was that he was so sorry for everything that had happened He wanted me to return to him. He also said he loved me so much. I was so happy and went to him that was how we started living together happily again.thanks to dr unity . if you are here and your Lover is turning you down, or your husband moved to another woman, do not cry anymore, contact Dr.Unity for help now..

Hi everyone... Am so excited to share my testimony of a real spell caster who brought my husband back to me. My husband and I have been married for about 6 years now. We were happily married with two kids, a boy and a girl. 3 months ago, I started to notice some strange behavior from him and a few weeks later I found out that my husband is seeing someone else. He started coming home late from work, he hardly cared about me or the kids anymore, Sometimes he goes out and doesn't even come back home for about 2-3 days. I did all I could to rectify this problem but all to no avail. I became very worried and needed help. As I was browsing through the Internet one day, I came across a website that suggested that Dr. Wale can help solve marital problems, restore broken relationships and so on. So, I felt I should give him a try. I contacted him and told him my problems and he told me what to do and I did it and he did a spell for me. 48 hours later, my husband came to me and apologized for the wrongs he did and promised never to do it again. Ever since then, everything has returned back to normal. My family is living together happily again.. All thanks to Dr. Wale If you have any problem contact him and I guarantee you that he will help you. He will not disappoint you. you can WhatsApp him +1(978) 406-9575 or Email him at : everlastingspellcast@gmail.com or view his website for more review https://everlastingspellcaster.website2.me/contact
