Who Hoo! League of Gentlemen Returns!

December 16, 2017

The BBC dark comedy series set in the town of Royston Vesey, where just about every character is a dysfunctional weirdo, sadist, or serial killer with some kind of bizarre fetish or obsession returns for three more episodes. It was last on our screens in 2002. It’s been fifteen years, but it shows that the show’s got a very dedicated audience, who share the League’s taste for black humour.

They considered making Royston Vesey even more grubby and shabby for the new series as a comment on Brexit, according to an article one of the League, Reece Shearsmith, gave to the I a few days ago. He stated that the show was never political, but that Brexit had meant that the rest of Britain had caught up with the xenophobic insularism of Royston Vesey.
