Episode 1 - Good Luck Father Ted

The first ever episode of Father Ted sees the arrival of Funland, the world's most cataclysmic travelling funfair, to Craggy Island. Funland is set up in The Field (it isn't really a field but it has less rocks in it than most places), however Ted has unknowingly arranged to meet a film crew there for an interview for 'Faith of Our Fathers'. In the confusion of the funfair, Dougal meets the film crew who mistake him for Ted, and he clutches his chance to tell the world his innermost thoughts on life, religion and the spider baby.


Episode 2 - Entertaining Father Stone

The most boring priest in the world (top ten anyway) has come to stay on Craggy Island with Ted and Dougal, who, try as they might cannot get rid of him.

Unfortunately not even God seems to like Father Stone and strikes him down with a bolt of lightning in an untimely crazy golf incident..


Episode 3 - The Passion Of Saint Tibulus

The Passion of Saint Tibulus - the most blasphemous film this century has been banned everywhere apart from Craggy Island.

Episode 4 - Competition Time

It's time for the All Priests Stars In Their Eyes Lookalike Competition and Ted has resolved that he will not go dressed as Mother Teresa again.

Episode 5 - And God Created Women

Ted's vows come under self-scrutiny when he falls for Polly Clarke, a famous authoress of romantic novels. The only problem is that Polly does not feel the same way and decides to join a group of nuns; nuns which no longer idolise Ted after a lukewarm welcome and super-short mass.


Episode 6 - Grant Unto Him Eternal Rest

The end is nigh for Father Jack after he overdoses on floor polish and is declared medically dead (although Ted takes some convincing).  Ted and Dougal stand to inherit a fortune from his will but only one thing stands in their way - Jack won't stay stay dead long enough for them to collect it.



Episode 1 - Hell

It's holiday time for the gang from Craggy Island, but it turns out to be the holiday from hell. Dougal fails to bring anything with them and so their entertainment is limited to a tree stump, a magic road, an over-exitable youth group and watching the kettle boil. Jack appears to be the only one who actually enjoys the holiday when he falls into the sea and is saved by some lovely girls.


Episode 2 - Think Fast, Father Ted

A fund-raising raffle is arranged in order to mend a leaking parochial house roof.

Ted must find a way to raise the money needed and obtain a new car. Just remember - it's not unusual for the people who run a raffle to actually win it.


Episode 3 - Tentacles Of Doom

Three bishops pay a brief visit to Craggy Island in order to upgrade a holy stone to a class two relic. Ted wants the parish to appear normal to the outside world and unfortunately, this involves Jack to join Ted's re-education programme and Dougal to keep his big mouth shut. The visit isn't a complete failure - at least only one of the bishops is unhappy with the time they spent on Craggy Island.
