A superb second instalment of the brilliant comedy series
on 21 October 2001
The inhabitants of Royston Vasey are back - and this time it's more weird and surreal than the first series. After the first series' plot line of a new road being built through the town (which has evidently not happened!) this time the town is held in the grip of a strange epidemic of nose bleeds. As you'd expect from the League Of Gentlemen lads, there are new characters in this series including the scarily funny Papa Lazarou, the mayor (superbly played by Roy Chubby Brown) and two old ladies who run the charity shop, obsessed by 'special marks' and bags. The series' really hots up in the last episode (i can't reveal what happens, because it would spoil it). If you're new to this show, it might not be your cup of tea, but even so, you'd be a fool to give it a miss - comedy like this unfortunately comes along too rarely. It's also a double DVD set, including fantastic extras like cast commentary, deleted scenes, photo gallery, character biographies, a behind the scenes documentary, and even a selection of music from the series. As it is, this will keep fans glued to their TV's for a long time to come - brilliant!
