Did You Know?


This episode marks the first appearance of Bishop Len Brennan (Jim Norton) on the series. See more »


Bishop Brennan points to a place in North America on a globe whilst describing a place in South America where he wishes to send Father Ted. This is possibly deliberate on the part of the script-writers (or actor Jim Norton) given the irate state of mind of the character in the scene. See more »


Father Ted: He gets a kind of waxy build up in his ears.
Father Dougal: Yeah, but it's good though, in a way, cos we never run short of candles.
