Product Description

More intrigue, suspense, weirdness and laughs in the return of the cliff-hanging comedy thriller…

After the explosion at Ravenhill Hospital, Mr Jelly, Joy, David and Maureen Sowerbutts, Mr Lomax and Robert just want to get on with their twisted, mad and sad lives. But the shadowy, if technologically-deprived, Grace Andrews and the enigmatic detective Finney are tracking them down – one by one – in search of Nurse Kenchington’s locket.

Meanwhile, we meet some new but equally bizarre Psychoville characters: Jeremy Goode, a librarian tortured by a silent singer as he hunts for 50 Great Coastal Walks of the British Isles Volume 2; Peter Bishop, whose toy shop, Hoyti Toyti, has a very strange basement and a desperate and dateless overworked make-up artist, Hattie.
What could they all have to do with the mystery – and why is it truly a matter of life and death?

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply the best. 7 Jun 2011
By Amy
Format:DVD
A beautiful, tragic, hilarious, moving, creepy and almost magical piece of work. Absolutely stunning. I doubt we'll ever see a series like it again; incredibly unique and creative, beautifully written, acted, directed and scored. I don't think I could find a single fault.
Wasn't sure this could top series 1, but it has. It is far more tense and sinister than the first outing, and it's grown tremendously since the first series. A wonderful set of new character's alongside the older ones keeps it fresh, and the story telling and plot development are superb. A real inspirational piece of work.

I am holding out hope that the Beeb realise what an absolute gem they've got with this show and give the go ahead for a third.

5.0 out of 5 stars Under-rated genius 16 Jun 2011
By Reader
Format:DVD
I don't think 5 stars quite cover the genius that is Psychoville. In fact the BBC really should be ashamed of themselves as this show deserves far more credit and coverage than it's had. Psychoville is one of those brilliant shows that it doesn't matter how often you watch it, you'll notice something different each time. Even now, after watching series 1 again last night, I noticed little clues early on that I hadn't noticed before. Also with respect to Reece Shearsmith and Steve Pemberton's writing, watch out for the brilliantly subtle homages to films that they take their inspiration from.

Joining the cast for Series 2 is Imelda Staunton who, despite my initial reservations (I'd only seen her as the straight-laced Prof Umbridge in Harry Potter), has been a fantastic casting. She has authority, she has her minions to do her bidding (Kelvin and Finney) and she has her technology. Some of my favourite scenes/lines have come from her character Grace Andrews in this series. Grace wants to be all Minority Report with her technology, but in her words her technology is more akin to that of "a village post office". Grace's attempts to make the most of her expensive technology is one of my favourite long running jokes in this series.

I feel a special mention should also be said for Vilma Holingberry/Mrs Wren/Mrs Ladybird Face. Vilma completely steals the show as Mr Jelly's adopted assistant in this series. Her lines are fantastic (credit again to Mr Shearsmith and Mr Pemberton), but the comic timing of Vilma Holingberry is sheer brilliance. The interactions between Shearsmith's Mr Jelly and Mrs Ladybird Face is absolutely one of my favourite double acts on TV at the moment. They seem to have a fantastic charisma and bounce off each other in every scene they appear in.

5.0 out of 5 stars Disturbingly fantastic!! 13 Jun 2011
By Fiona
Format:DVD
What can I say that hasn't already been said in the previous reviews on here?! Pyschoville 2 is by far much more superior to the first series, although I still love the first series and was slightly disturbed, but higly amused by it when it was on the TV. Series 2 is cleverer, funnier and darker, with one or two of the original characters getting much more well deserved screen time, and some new characters appearing in the mix to either liven up the storyline (Hattie and Sharouz) or to add to the existing plot (Jeremey the obsessive librarian and his 'Silent Singer' hallucinations!).

I totally loved The League of Gentlemen, and was worried that the first series of Psychoville would just be a parade of characters that may not have made the cut for LoG, but how wrong I was! Both Psychoville series 1&2 have shown that, although the humour/genre is in the same vein as LoG, Reece Shearsmith and Steve Pemberton have unbelievable talent and great writing skills that have continued to evolve into far funnier, more complex heights and they can hopefully be guaranteed another series with the BBC.

And I challenge you not to love Mrs. Ladybirdface!!

5.0 out of 5 stars But she doesn't like tuna... 8 Jun 2011
Format:DVD
Last series of Psychoville left us asking a lot of questions. However, the answers are finally here, as we discover the importance of Nurse Kenchington's Locket, exactly why Oscar Lomax hates Tony Hancock, who died in the explosion, and what the surviving characters are now doing. However, the plot becomes even more intriguing this series, as we see just how much more complicated events surrounding Ravenhill Hospital are, and a host of new characters appear. For example, the mysterious woman Grace Andrews, who appeared at the end of the Halloween special, who is closely monintoring the lives of the Ravenhill patients. The sinister Detective Finney, who is searching for the locket-and employs some rather unorthodox methods of doing so. Peter Bishop, the owner of Hoyti Toyti's, a shop specialising in more than just toys. We also meet Hattie, a marriage-obsessed woman, who relishes the chance to achieve her dreams of matrimony, and Jeremy Goode, a meticulous Librarian, who never lets a book go unaccounted for, and is haunted by visions of the eerie "Silent Singer".
Returning to the fold are Oscar Lomax and Tealeaf, who must deal with the repercussions of Lomax's turbulent past life. Mr. Jelly is working alongside old Mrs. Wren, when he becomes entangled involved in the late Mr. Jolly's secret "sideline". Joy finally has someone to look after-although that someone is very different to Freddy Fruitcake. David's life is thrown into disarray with some distressing news about Maureen-but he also faces problems of his own. Robert is still stuck with Kerry and her Grandma, but can he escape?
With the danger mounting, can Kenchington's locket be retrieved? Who will survive? Who will perish? There is only one way to find out!
