Product Description

Product Description

The third series of the BAFTA Award-winning comedy finds a terrible, tragic accident bringing a conclusion to the stories of some of the strange inhabitants of Royston Vasey. Also featuring the return of transsexual cab driver Barbara and Legz Akimbo.

Contains all six episodes from Series Three:

  • The Lesbian and the Monkey
    Pauline is released from potting pinks at HMP Clitclink, with dreams of opening a pen shop called ‘Her Nibs’.
  • The One-Armed Man is King
    Joke shop owner Lance has an illicit operation to graft on a new arm, but it has a mind of its own.
  • Turn Again Geoff Tipps
    Dismissed from his job, Geoff goes to London to make his fortune as a stand-up comedian. Soon his face – well, an identikit picture – is on prime-time TV.
  • The Medusa Touch
    As ‘sexplorers’ try out a new sex aid at Alvin and Sunny Steele’s B&B, Alvin escapes to the garden centre in search of more than compost bins …
  • Beauty and the Beast or Come Into My Parlour
    Handyman Charlie Hull is a great help at Judee Levenson’s new beauty parlour Spit ‘n’ Polish. Especially since he’s started providing special extras …
  • How the Elephant Got Its Trunk
    There’s a new volunteer at the charity shop – amateur dramatics enthusiast Keith Drop. Meanwhile, Dog Cinema boss Kenny Harris is confronted by his arch-enemy, cat crazy Dougal Siepp.

From Amazon.co.uk

The third series of The League of Gentlemen takes the portmanteau horror approach of their Christmas Special and extends it daringly across the entire six episodes. Here, each half-hour instalment is a self-contained story featuring various familiar and less well-known inhabitants of Britain's most accursed town, Royston Vasey. But each individual tale leads--horribly, inevitably--towards a single shocking event, the full circumstances of which are only realised in a final, macabre twist. It's all far too bleak to be called comedy, just too damn funny to be anything else. This is a team who have always defined their own rules, nowhere more boldly than here.

Opening with a funky new theme tune, the six episodes feature--among others--ex-con Pauline and Mickey in a touching tale of transvestisism; Lance the one-armed comedy shop owner yearning for a new limb; foul-tempered Geoff Tipps trying to make it as a stand-up comic in "Lundun"; some eye-popping fetishist behaviour at the local B&B; seedy goings-on in the massage parlour; and, most horrendously of all, the dreaded return of Papa Lazarou. It all proved too much for some viewers--too grotesque, too offbeat, too surreal. Packed with knowing references to obscure movies and filled with the most unpleasant characters ever to grace a "sitcom", this is certainly an uncompromising series, and one that invites fascinated speculation on what dark delights await in their upcoming movie.

On the DVD: The League of Gentlemen, Series 3 two-disc set maintains the high standard of extra features established by the previous series. Here there's more raucous "Local Gossip" with the four gents on the first disc, plus a second disc of insightful background material including: a 30-minute making of documentary by Adam Buxton (of Adam and Joe); a candid video diary from Steve Pemberton; a truly dire magic tutorial from Dean Tavalouris (Reece Shearsmith); Joby Talbot's music score; an interview with costume designer Yves Barre; outtakes and deleted scenes; plus a Mike King Enterprises editing suite, enabling you to muck about with the ending sequence and ruin it completely. --Mark Walker

The 3rd series of the League wasn't received too well when first broadcast, as I remember.
Boring, no sketches, too surreal, too sick, no Tubbs and Edward.
Just a few of the initial criticisms the show faced. Maybe people weren't ready, or maybe the weeklong gap between each episode was too much to notice the links and references between each story.
Either way, I half-heartedly bought it, and I'm very glad indeed. Far surpassing purely comedy, the 3rd series also scares, disgusts, confuses, and even touches you with the variety of the stories being told, more so than the previous efforts.
In summary, if you liked the first two series for their irreverant take on comedy, then you may be interested to see the direction theyve taken. If you're a sketch show person, its probably not for you.
Personally, I hadn't lived until I saw Ross and Pauline (Oh god, its true), the Debt Collectors, Charlie providing 'extras' and the oh-so-camp Keith Drop.

This third series aired in 2002 and focuses on a differing central character each episode, all the episodes culminating in an accident involving a white van, but each seen from the different characters viewpoint, but as with series two, it’s the later episodes that are the best.
The first disc carries the episodes and some commentary features, the second disc has a whole host of features such as making of, characters, out-takes, SFX footage etc..
The humour is darker, more perverse, more observant and takes you to dark depths featuring amongst other things stealing body parts, illegal operations, terrorist bombings, the asphyxiation evenings at the Windemere and no local shop! What’s it all coming too?
It is the only series that does not include a laugh track. Personally I hate ‘canned’ laughter, but this does suffer for the lack of it, unless you’re watching with others. This doesn’t really work if watching on your own as a lot of the humour is seeing other peoples reaction to it all.

I, like so many, am a dedicated fan of The League Of Gentlemen & have been since the radio series. The first two series of the televison show were hilariously funny & gained an even bigger legion of fans. However, I've come across many people who find this 3rd series to be a disappointment. Believe me, this is not the case.
Granted, The League have done something different. They're far to innovative to want to just do more of the same & instead opted to do this - an ultra-dark, intelligent, inspiring, hilarious & original comedy series.
Each episode follows a main plot & has two smaller plots running along side it. It all happens over the same time period & ends in the same place. Every episode exposes a little bit more of the climax & you're treated to many twists & turns on the way.
Gone are the days of the laughter-track which results in the whole experience feeling a lot darker & at times horrific. The stories themselves cover three catorgories; hilarious (Geoff Tipps), dramatic (Puline/Mickey/Ross) & sheer horror (Papa Lazarou).
The DVD itself is packed full of extras & features the ever-present Local Gossip (commentary) which is as entertaining as the show itself! There's also a few easter-eggs hidden away which I'd recommend you finding because they're well worth it.
Perhaps with the exception of the Christmas Special, this is the best thing The League Of Gentlemen have ever produced. The word 'genius' gets used to often & is usually aimed at undeserving targets (Little Britain anyone?) but Mark Gatiss, Reece Shearsmith, Steve Pemberton & Jeremy Dyson are truly deserving of the title - Geniuses. Superb!

Imagine the scene: You are a highly successful and original comedy group with two critically acclaimed and award-winning series, a similarly lauded Christmas Special and a sell-out national tour under your collective belt. You know what your audience like and will best respond to. It's time to start work on a third series. Buoyed up by these successes, especially the unprecented triumph of your recent tour, you have perhaps three options:
A) Stick to the formula that has worked extremely well for you so far and produce more of the same. After all, it's probably the easiest option and you know your fans will lap it up.
B) Dumb it down a little - tone down the more grotesque elements and obscure references and go for a more mainstream approach. After all, this will probably appeal to a wider audience and may even get you moved over to BBC1.
C) Take a risk and shake things up a little. After all, tempting as it may be to stick to familiar territory and creatively tread water, you're mindful of other shows which have done this and gone off the boil. You're not too concerned with belly laughs - they're no benchmark for real quality, and quality is what you're keen to maintain. To this end, you have a possible new direction in mind.
Go for option C. You may alienate some of your audience, but if they're going to moan about you trying something different then you're probably better off without them anyway. Who needs a laughter track? It's just annoying and slightly patronising - I don't want to be told when to laugh. I don't want a "THIS IS A JOKE" reminder. I'm intelligent enough to work that out for myself and laugh if I feel the need.
