The second season of the fabulous and ever so slightly deranged Psychoville sees the series continue along it’s path of horror/comedy in fine style.
Nobody has a handle on bad taste quite the way that writers and stars Shearsmith and Pemberton do and as this series begins we are taken back to the events which saw the six seemingly disparate characters being brought back together to pay for the crime that they were all involved in committing years earlier at Ravenhill Psychiatric Hospital.
When the survivors of the bomb blast that ended the first season reunite to bury one of the group who died in the blast they don’t realise they are being followed by the strange Grace Andrews and her aide de camp Kelvin. Meanwhile Detective Finney is also on the trail of the survivors determined to get to the bottom of the mystery of the blast.
