A chilling message that draws five seemingly disparate characters into a dark tale of blackmail and desire. A blind recluse with an unusual hobby, a love-struck telekinetic dwarf, an embittered hook-handed clown, a murder - obsessed man-child, and a deranged but caring midwife all receive the same ominous message sending their already bizarre lives into turmoil. All are affected in different ways by the letters and as more chilling messages are received the five are forced to confront their past and the secret that binds them together. From the team behind cult classic The League of Gentlemen this cliff-hanging comedy thriller weaves a tale of intrigue, mystery and suspense.

For those that missed Psychoville's brief 7 episode run on BBC2,here's your opportunity to see what all the fuss was about. Born out of the ashes of the classic League of Gentlemen, Psychoville offers a unique mix of characters, each with their own dark secret. Slowly the forces bring the original cast together, leaving you wanting more. Dawn French is particularly menacing as a nurse fostering a doll as if it was alive. Too often TV is criticised for churning our bland shows or rehashing American ideas, Psychoville is an example of original British talent.
