Product Description

About the Author

The League of Gentlemen was formed in 1995 by Jeremy Dyson, Mark Gatiss, Steve Pemberton and Reece Shearsmith. A series of live shows in London and Edinburgh led to them winning the coveted Perrier Award in 1997. Their radio series On The Town with The League of Gentlemen was broadcast on Radio 4 in 1997 and won a Sony Silver Award for Best Comedy. Three television series (1999, 2000, 2002) and a Christmas Special (2000) followed, winning the BAFTA, Royal Television Society, Golden Rose of Montreux and South Bank Show awards. A sell-out tour (2000/01), including six weeks at the Theatre Royal, Drury Lane, was nominated for an Olivier Award for Best Entertainment. A Local Book for Local People was published by 4th Estate in 2000.

A rather weighty and excellent compilation of the scripts from the first three series and the Christmas special. You can just open this book up at any page and find a memorable scene from any of the series. There's also lots of original pictures and drawings of just what the Gents originally planned (the drawing of the elephant from the last episode of series 3 is strange as it didn't end up like that!) and these are just as interesting for fans as the scripts themselves. So, if you're a fan, buy the book, it really is excellent. Once within the pages YOU'LL NEVER LEAVE! (Yes, I know, GROAN!)

Script books from TV comedy series are too often just shoddily put together as a quick cash-in on a briefly popular cultural phenomenon - printed on cheap paper, a middle section offering a few derisory pages of stills from the relevant show & encased in a dreary cover. All too often brought as christmas presents, to be read once before taking a one-way trip to the local charity shop...
Not so with The League of Gentlemen's Scripts and That. Its a lovingly put together scripts book of every episode of the Gents' three TV series & Christmas Special. Its the League's bible that no discerning fan would want to be without.
A 600 page tome printed on quality paper, the book contains each script as broadcast but also the parts they cut out or moved to another episode. Not only that, but there are plenty of on-set photos taken by the Gents or a member of the production team, reproduced handwritten script annotations, suggestions & amendments by a member of the League, plus the Gents' drawings & sketches of their numerous characters. These goodies are not just scattered across a few pages either, but are on practically EVERY SINGLE PAGE of a 600 page book!
Comprehensive & full of attention to detail, the book is a reflection of the high production standards that one has come to expect from TLoG.
It is an indispensable companion to the League's television output (so far). If you're new to the Gents, 'Scripts and That' is a brilliant introduction to their unique genius. If you're a fan, this League 'bible' would make the perfect companion piece to their Complete Collection on DVD. In fact its just the ideal thing to read after a marathon TLoG viewing session!
(And it has the best cover of any scripts book I have ever seen!)
Don't delay, just buy a copy!

If you love "The League of Gentlemen" and are interested in some background information of the show, the development and scripts in general this book is ideal for you. It contains the scripts of season 1, 2 and 3 and the Christmas Special, partially including the bits that are now part of the "Deleted Scenes" on the DVDs, notes of the gents, first drafts of some of the scenes, pictures of their make-up and costumes, drawings and sketches, copies of announcements, schedules, props, and so on...

A 'must have' for every true fan of "The League of Gentlemen".

The artwork on the cover makes it worth the money alone. A great insight into the brain function of TLOG.
