Steve Pemberton sells Plodding On script

Signed by LOADS of Inside No 9 guest stars

comedy Steve Pemberton is selling off his personal copy of the last ever Inside No 9 for charity – as well as the sculpted hare that was seen in the background of many episodes

The script is signed by himself, Reece Shearsmith, and most of the impressive list of guest stars who gathered on the set of Plodding On to say farewell to the series.

Proceeds of the sale will go to Pemberton’s chosen charity - Derian House Children's Hospice in Chorley, Lancashire – and bidding has already exceeded £2,300.

He wrote on X: ‘I collected signatures from that amazing room of talent on my ‘PloddingOn’ script and I’m auctioning it off for  @DerianHouse. To find out all the hidden Easter eggs bid here…’

Those who signed include Rula Lenska, Maxine Peake, Adrian Dunbar, Michele Dotrice, Paterson Joseph, Mark Bonnar, Zoe Wanamaker, Tamzin Outhwaite, David Morrissey, Alison Steadman, Jack Wolfe, Julie Hesmondhalgh, Rosie Cavaleiro, Katherine Parkinson, Susan Wokoma, Tamsin Greig, Nick Mohammed, Alice Lowe, Ralf Little, Bill Paterson, Conleth Hill, Kenneth Cranham, Claire Skinner, Ben Wilbond, Lyndsey Marshal, Robin Askwith and others.

Meanwhile, bidding on the seven-inch hare – also signed by Pemberton and Shearsmith – currently stands at £1,780.

Pemberton has sold many items of memorabilia in aid of the charity. The latest was the portrait Shearsmith’s character Drew  sketched during The Trolley Problem episode which was never seen on screen.  That fetched more than £2,000.
