Main article: "Yule Never Leave!"

The Christmas special, "Yule Never Leave" aired on 27 December 2000 and ran for an hour, double the length of a standard episode. It also marks the removal of a laughter track from the series. The special was noted by Mark Gatiss as being notably dark. Rather than the traditional sketches composition of the episode, it featured the central figure of Reverend Bernice Woodall listening to three separate stories involving Charlie and Stella Hull, Herr Lipp and Mr. Chinnery. The running theme throughout involved Bernice's recalls of a traumatic Christmas memory, leading to reintroduction of Papa Lazarou who would play a larger role in the next series.

The third and final series of The League of Gentlemen aired after nearly a two-year gap since "Yule Never Leave", with six episodes again airing over consecutive weeks, this time from 26 September - 31 October 2002. This series marked several major changes including: the show's set up changing to having a central character each episode (alongside one-off sketches) who would go on to play a part in a road accident which formed the series' arc. Several characters were no longer featured including the Dentons, Chinnery and Hilary Briss, while Tubbs and Edward were killed off in the opening scenes of the series. Less prominent characters such as Alvin Steele and Reenie Calver gained central roles. It also features the build-up to and eventual birth of Barbara and David's children.
