THE NETHER REGIONS – Even in Hell, there’s no escape from bureaucracy

Welcome to the Nether Regions; or by its offical title “Hell – The Nether Regional Branch”
Wielding untold power at the helm of a vast and mighty realm may sound glamorous but no one tells you about the sleepless nights and the unrelenting stress, but that’s what the Devil (voiced by Patrick Stewart) must deal with on an eternal basis. Even in Hell, there’s no escape from bureaucracy but occasionally he does manage to slip away. With the most magical healing hands in all the nine circles of Hell and a sympathetic ear, it is Sven’s Massage Parlour to which the Devil makes his first port of call.
