Quote from: Kankurette on April 20, 2022, 10:32:23 PMOK, I get that Spoiler alertthe boatman was Charon, that's why Reece puked up a coin, cos the Greeks put coins in the mouths of the dead so they could pay the ferryman, but does that mean they were all dead all along? I'm assuming that was his wife he saw at the end?[close]Nice to see Gatiss finally appear as well, with his Jurgen Klopp glasses.
Quote from: ishantbekeepingit on April 20, 2022, 10:32:49 PMIIRC Spoiler alertin the Greek myths, if you weren't given the coin as part of the proper burial rites, your shade was doomed to wander on the near bank of the Styx forever. I'm assuming that they all died on that night, Laurence/Reece of hypothermia on the island, everyone else fell off the paedo, and that was his wife at the end.[close]
Quote from: Norton Canes on April 20, 2022, 10:40:17 PMI got the impression that Spoiler alertafter he died the others became invisible to him, like he was in the same place but on a different plane (on a boat)[close]

Quote from: JamesTC on April 20, 2022, 10:49:04 PMFelt very moving and personally resonant in a way that few Inside No 9 have up to this point.
Quote from: This isnt witty sorry on April 21, 2022, 12:01:17 AMAccording to the post show podcast (via someone on Reddit)Spoiler alertThe other three are still alive. The "twist" being that you're led to believe they died and he survived until they get to the riverbank. [close]
Quote from: Bigfella on April 21, 2022, 04:42:50 AMOne thing - can we please assume spoilers are moot after it's been broadcast on BBC2?
Quote from: idunnosomename on April 21, 2022, 12:08:54 AMit felt more like an ok afternoon play
Quote from: Bigfella on April 21, 2022, 04:42:50 AMImpressive Scottish accent by Mark Gattis, a lot of English actors can't quite get there!
Quote from: Ballad of Ballard Berkley on April 20, 2022, 10:57:31 PMThat was great, it really captured the utter futility of trying to recapture your youth. Yes, the symbolism of the stuck pedalo - you can never go back, you need to move on etc. - wasn't exactly subtle, but the dialogue and performances transcended that. I found it very sad, for various reasons.Spoiler alertThe supernatural River Styx ending wasn't really necessary, it felt a bit tacked on, but I must admit I was moved by Shearsmith's subtle non-verbal acting in that final shot.[close]
