Horrible Histories Series 4 DVD
Running Time: 385 minutes
The forth series of the multi-award winning comedy sketch show Horrible Histories is packed to the rafters with fascinating facts, silly songs, popular pastiches and gruesome gags.
This series features some of the UK's finest comedic talent – including comedian Chris Addison, Sarah Hadland, League Of Gentleman stars Mark Gatiss, Reece Shearsmith and Steve Pemberton plus Horrible Histories regulars Mathew Baynton, Simon Farnaby, Martha Howe-Douglas, Jim Howick, Laurence Rickard and Ben Willbond.
Viewers will find out how historical figures such as Sick Whittington and Robert the Bruce get on pitching movies about their life story, and which Historical Apprentice teams will find out they're fired. There are also more magnificent musical interludes including Victoria and Albert's love ballad, Charles Darwin with a Bowie-esque rock tune, and a new Battle of Britain RAF Pilots boy band.
Each episode features a mirthful mix of sketches from across the ages, from Slimy Stuarts to Rotten Romans, and is hosted by Rattus Rattus the talking rat. Death returns to quiz the recently deceased on the manner of their demise in Stupid Deaths, and King Henry VIII has a go at raising some much needed funds by taking part in a daytime TV show Cash in the Abbey.
