Father Ted

Preview by Jack Foley

FROM award-winning creators Graham Linehan and Arthur Mathews and starring Dermot Morgan as the eponymous Father Ted Crilly, the brilliant and much-loved comedy, Father Ted, Series 1, 2 and 3 are now available to own separately on DVD from March 11, 2013.

Series 1 is based in a small parochial house on a tiny outcrop of rock somewhere off the west coast of Ireland with three priests and a housekeeper locked in an endless series of philosophical debates.

Catholicism or cake? Religion or rollerblading? Tiny cows or big cows that are far away? Welcome to the confusing, and confused, world of Father Ted!

Ted’s patience is fully tested in Series 2 by a succession of undignified incidents involving irate protest singers, hairy hands, stolen whistles and nude sleepwalkers.

Events come to a head with a life and death struggle on an under-fuelled aircraft with an over-fuelled Jack. Life isn’t getting any easier for Father Ted…

Craggy Island’s population of psychopathic milkmen, Nazi sympathisers and lecherous old ladies mean Ted is up against it more than ever in Series 3. And then there’s the not-so small matter of Bishop Brennan’s arse to contend with!

Luckily for Ted, he has the faithful presence of Dougal and Jack plus an endless supply of Mrs Doyle’s tea to help him cope. Luckily…

Each series of this laugh-out-loud comedy classic is also loaded with hilarious extras including brand new commentaries and interviews with Graham Linehan and Arthur Mathews, Tedfest 2007: A Very Ted Weekend & Tedfest 2007: Two tribes go to war, Commentary with Graham Linehan & Ardal O’Hanlon, Comedy Connections, Comic Relief with Ted and Dougal, and Channel 4’s 30 Greatest Comedy Shows.

Plus, each series comes with brand new individually designed bespoke illustrated packaging designed by renowned cartoonist, Tony Millionaire: “I’ve loved Tony Millionaire’s work for years and seeing the show through his eyes is a dream come true.” – Graham Linehan.

Laugh out loud again with Father Ted Series 1, 2, & 3 available to own from March 11, 2013.
