Thursday saw the start of series 2 of Psychoville here in the UK, from Reece Shearsmith and Steve Pemberton. All the usual dysfunctional, amoral characters are there, from the blind toy collector Lomax, hook-handed clown Mr Jelly, derranged nurse Joy, to the best (in my opinion) characters the serial-killer obssesed David Sowerbutts and his mother.
It's a new character that was the most interesting though, the Silent Singer,
Seen only by Shearsmith's librarian character (with an anguished plea of "Not now, Silent Singer!") he/she moves about jerkily singing into a walking stick, as you guessed, silently.
There's more than a touch of David Lynch at work here. The (presumably) backwards filmed movements and menacing air of the Silent Singer reminded me of Bob in Twin Peaks. Just something dangerous only glimpsed from the corner of your eye, and then it's gone.
Some of it was a little over the top, but that's not a legitimate criticism of the guys who brought the visceral humour of The League of Gentlemen to the screen, it's meant to be outlandish.Overall, a decent start to the series. A little bit of humour and horror to fill an otherwise bland Thursday evening.
