    BBC Two can confirm that the much-loved and critically-acclaimed comedy The League Of Gentlemen will be back on screen later this year for three special episodes, to commemorate the twentieth anniversary since their debut on BBC Radio. Their career launched with the BBC in the same year they won the Perrier Award for Comedy at the 1997 Edinburgh Fringe Festival. Mark Gatiss, Steve Pemberton, Reece Shearsmith and Jeremy Dyson will be reuniting for a return to Royston Vasey. The League Of Gentlemen ran for three series on BBC Two and won the Rose D’Or and the BAFTA for Best Comedy Series in 2000.

    The specials are commissioned by Patrick Holland and Shane Allen, Controller BBC Comedy, and they will be produced by BBC Studios. Executive producer is Jon Plowman, the producer is Adam Tandy, and the director is Steve Bendelack.

    Radio series was on the iPlayer recently, still fantastic.
    🙂

    I liked the TV series too, it was interesting to contrast the image I’d built up in my head with how the writers imagined it.

    Looking forward to it.

    Someone had written ‘Dave’ underneath.

    The local shop was based on their experience in The Flood chemist in Rottingdean when spending a day in Brighton. Sadly the chemists is no more and it’s now a branch of Fox & Son’s estate agents.

    Will they be playing any Creme Brulee?

    How did the end of that forgettable film leave the characters? Didn’t the town blow up or something

    I liked the film. It left a few dead characters and all the actors dead. Jeremy in a Coma, and everyone had tails.
