Cult British comedy series League of Gentlemen, or LoG, hits the big screen for the first time with this feature comedy revolving around the fictional town of Royston Valley.

When vicar Bernice reads the writing on the wall- a prophecy of apocalypse- some Valley residents cross a portal into the real world to convince their creators to keep writing about Royston Valley or else their world may very well disappear. First she sends Tubbs and Edward Tattsyrup along with Papa Lazarou who manage only to accidentally kill one of the creators (Michael Sheen). Quick to follow are: murderous butcher Hilary Briss (Mark Gatiss), embittered businessman Geoff Tipps (Shearsmith) and sinister pederast Herr Lipp (Steve Pemberton) who confront their creators in an effort to force them to continue writing about Royston Vasey. But the LoG seem more interested in their new creation, a historical-era horror called 'The King's Evil' in which a group of Catholics work together with a black magician called Dr. Pea (David Warner) in order to kill the Protestant King William III (Bernard Hill) and Queen Mary II (Victoria Wood) using a poisonous monster called a "Homunculus"(Rachel Rath).

Finally the big crescendo erupts as all 3 worlds and their characters meet in Royston Valley- a world they hope to save...
