Reece Shearsmith, Mark Gatiss and Steve Pemberton tie up some loose ends in this series' last visit to Royston Vasey

COMEDY The League of Gentlemen 10.00pm BBC2
This latest series of The League of Gentlemen, which finishes tonight, has been somewhat overshadowed by The Office, which has won most of the column inches and high-profile raves.
But The League of Gentlemen retains a special place in the hearts of anyone who loves anything that is black, bizarre and completely out of the mainstream. The third series has seen the Gents - Reece Shearsmith, Steve Pemberton, Mark Gatiss and (the non-acting) Jeremy Dyson - develop familiar characters, frequently leading them into dark alleyways, and brought us glimpses of new Royston Vasey inhabitants we can only hope to see again. Tonight we meet tragically terrible magician Dean Tavalouris (Shearsmith), who, with his cod-American accent, waylays passers-by with his awful tricks.
Then there's the diminutive Kenny Harris (Gatiss), owner of the town's dog cinema, which, naturally enough, shows films only about dogs. This week, he has to face up to the arrival of his nemesis, Dougal Siepp (special guest Christopher Eccleston), who has a similar obsession, though with cats.
We also meet the handsome, charming and rather mysterious Keith Drop (Shearsmith), who arrives to work in the local charity shop with the carrier-bag-obsessed Reenie (Pemberton). And we're reacquainted with a deeply sinister face from the past.
Anyone who has followed the series will learn tonight how the various strands left during previous episodes are tied up. And for me, tonight's episode contains one of the series' finest moments - the appearance, in the Royston Vasey Players' production of The Diary of Anne Frank, of Pam Doove, the world's most incomprehensible actress.
Later, over on BBC Choice, a special documentary, The Making of The League of Gentlemen, visits the cast and crew in the "real" Royston Vasey. Alison Graham

About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time - not those of today.

Welcome to BBC Genome

Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in programmes, online etc.

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers, images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
