Darkling Beetle, Lagria hirta

Can anyone ID this small beetle for me please; I had two of them in the bathroom today. Total length about 1cm. Brown of the elytra has come out slightly redder here than in vivo. Nearest I can get is the Powder-Post Beetle, Lyctus fuscus, but the antennae should be clubbed in this species. Location is Greenford, west London, UK.
