Rated TBC by the BBFC


Box set featuring the feature film and two specials from the cult TV programme. The town of Royston Vasey is populated by many strange and eccentric individuals. 'The League Of Gentlemen's Apocalypse' (2004) is the big screen version of the programme in which misanthropic vicar Bernice (Reece Shearsmith) discovers a prophecy that warns of the destruction of Royston Vasey. The locals then discover that they are in fact fictional creations of the 'League of Gentlemen' comedy troupe. Making their way through a mysterious portal into the real world, murderous butcher Hilary Briss (Mark Gatiss), embittered businessman Geoff Tipps (Shearsmith) and sinister pederast Herr Lipp (Steve Pemberton) confront their creators in an effort to force them to continue writing about Royston Vasey. 'League Of Gentlemen At Drury Lane'(2001) is the live stage adaptation of the popular TV series. In 'The League Of Gentlemen Are Behind You' (2006) the tradition of the great British panto is lampooned by the crackpot crew. The annual panto in Royston Vasey is at least as creepy and wacky as you'd expect.
