This parody series is an unearthed 80s horror/drama, complete with poor production values, awful dialogue and hilarious violence. The series is set in a Hospital in Romford, which is situated over the gates of Hell.
Monkey Dust is a weird show. It must be said. The show's producers will do ANYTHING to get a laugh out of the audience. Sketches involving drug use, suicide, paedophilia may not be everyone's cup of tea and you need a strong stomach to sit through an episode. If you are a parent, don't let your kid watch it. If you are a kid, don't watch it in front of your parents (they'll have you back watching CITV before the end credits.) But aside from the various course swearwords and disturbing scenes there is a clever parody of British and London culture going on. The show's writers love mocking reality TV (Big Brother, I'm a celebrity, etc) and one frequent joke involves Monkey Dust's own reality TV show, People on the Toilet. There are funny sketches involving such popular tabloids as The Sun and the Daily Mail and their attitudes towards asylum seekers and paedophiles (eg the Paedo Finder General.) So watch Monkey Dust on BBC3-if you dare...
