Storyline

The town of Fairwater will get its first Catholic mayor and Father Duddleswell asks him to remain open about his faith. There's a price. The mayor-elect needs to show that he's not in the priests' pocket, so he asks Fathers Duddleswell and Boyd to agree to play doubles against the Anglicans in a clergy tennis match. Father D agrees superficially but then schemes to prove he can win without ever touching the ball. Written by statmanjeff
