Father Ted

My father's AWOL, so I can make this my video of the week. This was a classic comedy that only lasted two series following the untimely death of Dermot Morgan, the actor behind the lead role. It was also filmed around here, and so the temptation to shout 'feck' is overwhelming. In fact, yesterday, TDT took me to a well known department store in town, and I mentioned that it would have been perfect for an episode where Father Ted and several other priests end up lost and caught out in the lingerie department. They mustn't get caught or the scandal doesn't bear thinking about, so they set up a mission to escape. And, it turns out I was right. It was filmed in the department store I was in.
