Hello Dave BBC Two

Wanna buy some pegs? Well, you may just be in luck, with official confirmation that The League Of Gentlemen will be returning to the Beeb for three new special episodes, with all four original members - Mark Gatiss, Steve Pemberton, Reece Shearsmith and the non-performing Jeremy Dyson - coming together to contribute. Presumably, then, no one else has upset Shearsmith by damning the original series with the label "kooky".

As is always the way with such announcements (including the news that Alan Partridge will also be returning to the channel), it's been met with a large dose of excitement but also a measure of concern that the new episodes might struggle to live up to the heights of their predecessors. Only time will tell, but the consistent quality of Shearsmith and Pemberton's Inside No. 9 certainly gives cause for optimism.
