Most sinister TV character

Postby Mr Goo » Wed Sep 26, 2012 16:25 pm

Was having a trawl through the You of the Tube at lunchtime and watched some League of Gentlemen. A great series and very funny, but some of the characters are very sinister. None more so than Papa Lazarou the circus master come people catcher. Even has his own Wiki entry.

Ah yes. With Professor Astro, later to become Fr. Jack Hackett.

By any stretch, Irish kids TV had it nailed with Podge on the Den, a long running campaign of psychological torture waged on Zig (or maybe Zag) by a puppet that no-one else knew was alive, that only talked to him, and was weird as all hell.

I think it was because it was faceless, but mainly because it did this....
