  • is that a crown you wear???

    one of the most classic episodes overall... this is the one from all those 100 greatest scary moments countdowns... the one with tubbs and edward's infamous satanic style ritual for the workmen. disturbing and extremely funny at the same time...

    we also meet the bitter rev bernice, one of the funniest characters...

  • Episode 2. The new road is coming to Royston vasey. But Tubbs and Edward have plans for the unsuspecting workmen.

    The road to Royston Vasey introduced more charchters and set up the new road storyline, which is mentioned thougout series 1. While a little darker in places (Tubbs and Edward are more evil now) There are moments of light relief (Judde and iris). My only dissapointment was the Pop sketch. It made me quite uncomfterble watching it. Prepare yourselve though for the Local Shop tortue scene. The first time i showed my frenid that scene he had a luck of "what the F(bleep)" for about an hour.moreless

    • Pauline: Okey cokey, pig in a pokey! Good morning, job seekers! Now before I begin, I know one of the best pens has gone missing. Can I have it back, please? [A pen flies through the air] Thank you. Now as you're aware, today we're going to be looking at your career options. Some of you like Ross here, will want to follow in your father's footsteps – but you can't sign on forever. So instead, we'll be looking at sales jobs. Namely, how to sell this… The Big Issue! Now, for those of you not in the know, The Big Issue is a magazine. It's a bit like Bunty but written by tramps. Inside it's got stories…and poems…and, look, Mickey, love, pictures!

    • Edward: Don't worry Tubbs. They won't get far!
