Inside No. 9 - BBC

As an anthology series, Sheridan only appeared in one episode of BBC's celebrated quirky series, but what an episode it was. The 12 Days of Christine sees Sheridan as Christine, a young woman who seems to be randomly skipping through moments of her life, much to the bemusement of her and the audience. To say anymore would be to give it away, but do not sleep on this amazing performance.
