and there were more parts of it that seemed like one-offs (like the perfect Americanised Crusades mentioned earlier - the caption at the end, "Dedicated to all the Americans Who Died In The Early Middle Ages") rather than the continuing characters we had in the last series, only a couple of which now remain.
The first episode of Series 1 was very much like this too (with the Hollywood take on the British Third Reich) so I would have thought some characters will return later on in Series 2 from this initial episdoe. Hoping it'll be the Paedocatcher General, and The Thin Controller.
Having watch it again last night (god bless VHS) I have to say I loved the sketch with the Police Riot - animated in a very convincing 1930's Warner Bros style animation. Lovely.
