These and other memorable townsfolk are ferried around by Barbara, a taxi driver half way through his sex change, and served by Mr Iingleby, who brings a whole new meaning to the term 'small shopkeeper'. Murderously funny and acutely observed, 'The League of Gentlemen's' highly acclaimed brand of comedy shows human nature at its most extreme - and most hilarious.
