Inside No. 9: The Devil Of Christmas review
Years pass and the reign of the imposter emperor continues. No one knows where Yoshi is, and the few that do keep silent. The river-people prove useful in harbouring not just the rightful emperor and Kiyoyori's daughter, Hina, but also, Akihime and Shikanoko's son, Take. But trouble starts when Kiku, one of Lady Tora's sons, grows restless. Merry Christmas!

Finally, having Rula Lenksa, whose voice is so redolent of these kinds of upper middle-class teleplays, added yet more verisimilitude. Who better to poke fun at seventies television than one of its stars? Not forgetting the multiple episodes directed by Graeme Harper.
This lurid tale was packed with treats for TV nerds. The nasty final revelation may not have been sold quite as convincingly as the seventies send-up, but in the moment, it did the job of adding a chill, malevolent edge to a expertly made half-hour.
