Publisher's Summary

Welcome to Spent, an isolated and rather odd town somewhere in the North. Its singular inhabitants lead blackly comic lives, from Dr Chinnery, the lethally incompetent vet and Pauline, the monstrous Restart Officer at the Job Centre, to the hideously exacting Dentons who impose their disturbing habits and pet toads upon their visiting nephew Ben. These and other memorable townsfolk are ferried around by Barbara, a taxi driver half way through his sex change, and served by Mr Iingleby, who brings a whole new meaning to the term 'small shopkeeper'. Murderously funny and actuely observed, The League of Gentlemen's highly acclaimed brand of comedy shows human nature at its most extreme, and most hilarious.

A fantastically dark and fully realised world.

I'm a huge and oldschool fan of the TV show, this is sufficiently different to be both funny and insightful. While not as dark as the TV show, great voice acting and exceptionally tight scripts make it stand out.
