Bombastic bishop Len Brennan arrives unannounced and orders Ted and Dougal to picket the local cinema, which is showing 'The Passion of Saint Tibulus', a film declared obscene by the Pope and consequently banned globally except - due to a loop-hole - Craggy Island. Ted and Dougal dutifully begin their, somewhat half-hearted, protest but it only serves to whip up enormous publicity for the film with people from all over Europe turning up to see it. An outraged bishop is about to send the priests off to very far-flung parishes as a punishment - until Jack discovers a highly incriminating video of him with his mistress. Written by

) given the irate state of mind of the character in the scene. See more
