Plus first look at stills from next week's episode

Here is the film poster image for next week's episode of Inside No 9 – as well as the first look at some stills from the programme.

The artwork has been created by comedian Poppy Hillstead, known for her podcast Poppy Hillstead Has Entered The Chat.  

The episode, the third in the current series, is entitled Lip Service and guest stars Fleabag's Sian Clifford as Iris, a professional lip-reader.

She has been hired by Steve Pemberton's character Felix to check up on his wife, who he fears is having an affair with her boss Dmitri. With the aid of Iris's powerful binoculars, the pair stake out a hotel bedroom and start to gather their evidence.
