Synopsis by Mark Deming
The brave citizens of the village of Royston Vasey -- nearly all of them played by Mark Gatiss, Steve Pemberton, and Reece Shearsmith -- once again mount a hard-fought battle against progress in this episode from the British comedy series. As construction of the new road comes to a halt, veterinarian Mr. Chinnery is ordered to identify an odd creature found dead near the building site. Mr. Foot attempts to befriend a blind man without realizing just how rude he's being. The children of Royston Vasey receive seriously mixed messages when the Vicar stops by to give them the straight scoop on their future in Hell, while the educational theater troupe Legz Akimbo present an "instructional" program on coming to terms with one's homosexuality. Chloe and Radclyffe Denton, the twin daughters of Uncle Harvey and Auntie Val, have an unfortunate encounter with a scarecrow, and later lead one of Harvey's prized toads to a grim fate while being watched over by Benjamin.
