Royston Vasey, an isolated hamlet in the North of England, is home to some of the countries most eccentric, darkly tragic and disturbing inhabitants. Take for example Barbara the hairy transexual with the fashion sense of Lilley Savage and a voice like Bernard Manning or Pauline the vindictive restart officer who is more interested in her pens than helping anyone find a job...

The first series of The League of Gentlemen has received huge critical acclaim and it's not hard to see why. The three talented actors play over 60 characters between them and it is a tribute to the make-up artist that it is not possible on first viewing to work out who is playing which part.

There is plenty of material on the DVD to keep fans of the series happy for hours. There are audio commentary for every episode as well as a good selection of cut scenes which are worth a look.

If you have £20 to blow you could do a lot worse than this.
