The first season of the British comedy series The League Of Gentlemen, in which Mark Gatiss, Steve Pemberton, and Reece Shearsmith both wrote and portrayed the bizarre characters who populate the village of Royston Vasey, concluded with this episode. Edward and Tubbs make the startling discovery that the construction company attempting to put a new road right through their shop is run by their long lost son, David. Benjamin is forced by his Uncle Harvey and Auntie Val to clean the bathroom, which turns out to be no simple procedure in the Denton home. Pauline loses her position at the Job Centre when it's revealed that one of her students in the Job Training course is actually a government inspector. Veterinarian Mr. Chinnery is on hand to help a cow deliver a calf, with disastrous results. Bernice the Vicar shares her views on handicapped parking, and Geoff has a bit of a surprise for his friends as they plan a birthday party for him. And finally, Tubbs has decided to do the unthinkable -- she's leaving Royston Vasey and is moving to London with David, though getting out of town isn't as easy as one might imagine ... just ask Benjamin.
