Mark Gatiss, Steve Pemberton and Reece Shearsmith serve up laughs and shocks aplenty in the surreal BBC black comedy THE LEAGUE OF GENTLEMEN.

"Welcome to Royston Vasey" - Ben Denton has just arrived in town and is looking forward to a hiking holiday with his friend Martin, as well as catching up with his Auntie Val and Uncle Harvey. At the local job center, restart officer Pauline is furious when Mickey, one of her slower students, lands a job interview without her 'help'.

"The Road to Royston Vasey" - The new road is a real boon for everyone except Edward and Tubbs Tattsyrup, the peculiar owners of the Local Shop. In this episode we also meet 'video hounds' Henry and Ally, as well as the truly-terrifying Reverend Bernice.

"Nightmare in Royston Vasey" - Tubbs sees a map and realises that Edward has hidden the outside world from her. Pauline cracks during a lesson about interview techniques and a strange creature is unearthed by the construction crew.

"The Beast of Royston Vasey" - Mr Chinnery is called upon to investigate the strange beast found by the road-crew. The Legz Akimbo Theatre Company makes it's annual visit to the town. Ben babysits the Denton's weird twin daughters Chloe and Radclyffe.

"Love Comes to Royston Vasey" - Mike gets married with the disgruntled Geoff acting as the best man. The Dentons mourn the passing of their prized toads Sonny and Cher.

"Escape From Royston Vasey" - Tubbs and Edward have an unexpected visit from their son David. Things are getting dire for poor Ben who longs to escape the Denton's clutches and it's Operation Day for Babs.

The DVD includes audio commentary, character profiles and deleted/extended scenes. (Single-sided, dual-layer disc).

Highly-recommended.
