In The Devil Of Christmas Steve Pemberton and Reece Shearsmith return with a seasonally-twisted special of their often downright scary anthology comedy, Inside No.9. It also marks the start of a whole new series with another five episodes to come after this.
It is Austria, Krampusnacht, December 1977. Julian Devonshire (Steve Pemberton), his pregnant wife Kathy (Jessica Raine), their son Toby and mother-in-law Celia (Rula Lenska) arrive at the alpine chalet for a family holiday.
They are shown around by Klaus (Reece Shearsmith) who tells the family about the local legend of The Devil of Christmas. All the good children are given gifts by St. Nicholas, and all the bad ones are punished by the demonic Krampus. But who has been good, and who has been bad?
Inside No 9: The Devil of Christmas airs BBC Two on 27 December, 2016 from 10.00pm to 10.30pm.
