Gentlemen of comedy are back
The League of Gentlemen, ABC Comedy, Tuesday at 10pm
MUCH-loved comedy The League of Gentlemen returns with three new episodes to celebrate the group’s 20th anniversary at the BBC.
Once again, the three performing members of the League – Reece Shearsmith, Steve Pemberton and Mark Gatiss (all pictured) – play a veritable host of bizarre and darkly comic characters inhabiting the fictional Northern town of Royston Vasey, in scripts written by themselves and co-creator Jeremy Dyson.
Royston Vasey is facing a threat more serious than anything it has faced before: dark rumours of boundary changes that could erase the town from the map forever.
The fight to save Royston Vasey from administrative annihilation will come from unexpected and surprising directions, all of them local.
