  • Telly: PSYCHOVILLE – double u tee eff?

September 7, 2016

Pschoville is very reminiscent of A League of Gentlemen – not the movie, but its dark and twisted telly cousin. I love it.

Psychoville is weird, humorous, silly, serious and still scary but funny and sometimes disturbing…. confused enough? I sure was. The Clown is pure genius. The Silent Dancer is somehow super scarey. The blind old man, serial killers, porno dwarves and crazy nurse make this satirical comedy series something very special indeed. Pour yourself a stiff glass of WTF and enjoy it.

After creating the kind of northern town nightmares are made of, The League Of Gentlemen’s Reece Shearsmith and Steve Pemberton are looking for a new place to settle down… welcome to Psychoville.

Written by the Leagsters for BBC Two, Psychoville is a dark character comedy mystery featuring characters from all over the UK, who each receive a mysterious letter.

They include a blind man with a curious collection, a midwife with a very odd child, a dwarf who’s in love with his panto Snow White and a one-handed clown and children’s entertainer with a hook.

Yet despite having different backgrounds, different interests, and coming from different parts of the country, every one has been sent an anonymous, black-edged card which reads: “I know what you did…”

If you dont get it then just dont watch it… but if you like dark humour and can imagine a cross between a monty-python, the shining, Stephen Kings IT and days of our lives then you might just enjoy it. Or if you are a confirmed nut-job then you will deffo enjoy it.
