    Satan may rule the roost, but he's beset by the poor unfortunates condemned to sit out Eternity with him. Amongst them is the Professor, who is convinced that societies evolve and mature until Satan introduces him to Bill Clinton. There's also Scumspawn, with his large expanse of nothingness between the ears, as was always expected. And as for Satan himself, he is persuaded to attempt to improve his image on Earth, to remake Casablanca (with Bogart, Bergman, and a mutant alien) and starts a football match in Hell .

    Jean Paul Sartre said, 'Hell is other people'. But, as Satan will tell you, Hell is actually a fiery, unendingly cruel domain where Oliver Reed can never quite catch the barman's eye and Yves St Laurent is forced to wear a donkey jacket. But Hell is about to become more hellish for Satan himself (Andy Hamilton). Not only is the historian Edith Barrington (Annette Crosbie) taking for ever to write his biography, An Angel Misunderstood, but everything is thrown into confusion when a dog turns up.

    It's not easy being Satan. There are the long hours (that stretch into eternity), and Hell seems to have more admissions than it can cope with. One of the new arrivals is Edith, a historian, athlete, and humanitarian. And she's trouble: she refuses to believe she's dead, she knows Thomas, and she's not afraid of Satan. But will the Grand Tour, which includes the Pit of Musicians, the Lake of Fire, and the Pit of Health and Safety Inspectors, finally make her realise where she's ended up?
