The Cicerones (13 mins)
English tourist John Trant (Mark Gatiss) visits an East European cathedral in search of an obscure religious painting. There he encounters enigmatic guides, who lead him deep into the strange church, where horror awaits... With the unnerving black humour you'd expect from League of Gentlemen pedigree of writer/director Jeremy Dyson and star Gatiss, this is a chilling story to rival MR James.
