British black comedy at its very best

Following on from their two multi-award-winning series, we rejoin the twisted characters of Royston Vasey for this outrageous Christmas Special. Guest starring Liza Tarbuck as the vengeful wife of a cheating line-dancer, this feature length special expands on the winning formula of the bizarre meets the macabre. Old friends such as Herr Lipp, Bernice the vicar, Stella and Tony, and Dr. Chinnery join up for an unforgettable Xmas treat.
A Gothic-comedy masterpiece, The League of Gentlemen Christmas Special is a horrific anthology of three related stories, all set in Royston Vasey, which takes its inspiration as much from the writings of M.R. James and Edgar Allan Poe as the low-budget Hammer and Amicus shockers that the team parodies so affectionately. The stories are all linked by the Dickensian device of Reverend Bernice receiving unexpected guests on Christmas Eve: the first concerns troubled married couple Charlie and Stella becoming unwittingly involved in voodoo and witchcraft; the second features the horrendous Herr Lipp in a Nosferatu skit that reveals the terrible truth about what really goes on in Duisburg; while the third, and best, tells of the horrible hereditary curse that afflicted Dr Chinnery's great-grandfather. This one-off special distils all the League's penchant for disturbing, twisted characterization and macabre humor into a single hour; the result is one of the most daring "comedies" ever seen on British TV. –Mark Walker (source)
