The fictional world of Royston Vasey is familiar to the countless fans of award-winning TV comedy series "The League of Gentlemen". But something has gone disastrously wrong in the nightmarish town as a series of dark omens appear foretelling its doom. Royston Vasey is facing apocalypse and the locals realise that the only way to avert disaster is for a small rescue party to find a way into the real world and confront their creators.
Fugitive butcher Hilary Briss and his two hostages, German exchange master Herr Lipp and businessman Geoff Tipps accidentally make it through to the real world. There they meet fellow characters Edward, Tubbs and Papa Lazarou who explain that everyone and everything in Royston Vasey has actually been written by comedy group The League Of Gentlemen. Now that these creators have decided not to write any more Royston Vasey, the town and its inhabitants are all facing destruction. Hilary, Herr Lipp and Geoff are told they must travel to London and make the writers return their attention to Royston Vasey, otherwise everyone will perish. But they soon find out that The League of Gentlemen have already started writing their new creation, a 17th Century demonic drama called "The King's Evil"...
From present day Soho to the fictional world of the 17th Century, the locals must overcome countless bizarre obstacles in their adventure to return Royston Vasey to safety.
