Things just keep getting stranger in the village of Royston Vasey in this episode of the British comedy series The League Of Gentlemen, written by Mark Gatiss, Steve Pemberton, and Reece Shearsmith, who also play nearly all the roles themselves. An unfortunate man from the roads commission has to break the bad news to Tubbs and Edward that their shop will have to be moved to make room for a new highway, only to discover Tubbs isn't aware that there's a world outside Royston Vasey. Veterinarian Mr. Chinnery tries an unorthodox treatment on a sick tortoise, with disastrous results. Benjamin's breakfast is spoiled when Uncle Harvey and Auntie Val decide to share with him their quaint habit of drinking their own urine. Pauline has a tough day at the employment center when she tries to show how to behave at a job interview. Mike announces he and his girlfriend Cheryl, leading to a battle royale between his friends Geoff and Brian over who gets to be best man. And Bernice Woodall, the village's female vicar, wonders to herself what sort of undesirables would be attracted to Royston Vasey should a protest be organized against the new highway.
