Have mercy on poor Father Ted Crilly. He has so much to contend with when it comes to dealing with the folks of Craggy Island, Ireland. There's Father Dougal McGuire, who is as dimwitted as they come; and then there is Father Jack Hackett who lives for the simple pleasures of life (sleeping, drinking, and swearing). Ted tries to bring stability to his congregation as well as the surreal townspeople of Craggy Island. Written by

Would you like a cup of tea, Father?
No, I'm allergic. If I drink tea there's a chance I'll die.
Well, I'll make you one anyway!

The sixth episode of the second season begins with the usual credits, but instead of Father Ted, the title reads: Father Ben. It then cuts to Dougal sitting in front of the TV, watching Father Ben. Ted comes in and makes fun of the character of Father Ben, saying he has no self-awareness at all. It then cuts to the normal credits. See more »
'Father Ted' was without question Channel 4's finest ever creation. Hilariously funny in every way and had classic performances from Dermot Morgan as the estranged Father Ted and Ardal O'Hanlon as the childish Father Dougal. I also loved Mrs Doyle with her 'Go on Go on Go on'. The series also had some classic and memorable moments and was always laugh out loud and is without question a cult classic. Which made Dermot Morgan's the day after filming the final ever episode even more tragic. Dermot really made this show what it was. Funny, humourous and great to watch. His death brought the end to the life of a comic genius and one that will never be forgotten. 'Father Ted' was the greatest. It will live on.
