League of Gentlemen Christmas Special,
This review is from: The League of Gentlemen -- Christmas Special [DVD]  (DVD)
Those of you familiar with the League of Gentlemen, and even those who arent, will not be disappointed with the christmas special!
The story unfolds in a portmanteau style, focusing on three main plots all with a common theme. The unlikely Reverend Bernice is visited on Christmas Eve by Charlie who is haunted by a 'cheese dream' involving his wife Stella and some rather strange characters! The second of her visiters, a desperate and bedraggled character, recalls his past spent in Germany in 1975. He quickly learns it's more than just the choirmasters advances he must avoid! Finally, Dr Chinnery arrives after another unsucessful attempt at treating his patients. He exposes his Great Grandfather's legacy and we travel back to a time where "the name Chinnery is synonymous with excellence". How quickly things can change! A few strangley familiar faces appear as well!
The feature includes references to classic and future classic films and is inkeeping with League of Gentlemens own brand of dark humour. However, they never fail to keep things fresh and throw in a few surprises along the way!
