Episode 13 - Rock a Hula Ted

Actress Lindsey Mitchell and prodigal son Vince (they all have lovely bottoms) are on the judging panel for The Lovely Girls. Ted's has the honour of picking the winner, who will have the honour of paying for dinner for him. Dougal has to house sit but fiery feminist rock star Niamh Connolly is in the property market. Jack takes up charity fraud, while Mrs Doyle shows her competency with power tools. 


Episode 12 - The Plague

DJ and musician Graham Harrison has to cure The Plague befalling Craggy Island, as the whole place is coming down with rabbits and Ted and Dougal desperately search for a ways to get rid of them - on the eve of Bishop Brennan's impromptu visit! Mrs Doyle puts her mechanic skills to use on Len's car, while Jack confuses his rodents. 


Episode 11 - A Song for Europe

Composer and musician Marty Devine serenades us through Craggy Island's melodious tribute to Eurovision. Ted and Dougal go through some creative differences, but emerge with the classic My Lovely Horse (well, the lyrics at least). Jack's drinks cabinet has got a very expensive new addition and Mrs Doyle's brutally honest critiques would do well on the Judges panel of X Factor.

Episode 10 - The Old Grey Whistle Theft

Donny Kingston, up and coming stand up on Belfast's comedy circuit, helps unravel the mystery of the stolen whistle and stave off complete societal breakdown on Craggy Island. It's just a whistle! 


Episode 9 - Tentacles of Doom

London Comedy Writers Olly Allsop and Jordan Birch attend the upgrading of the Holy Stone of Clonrickert to a Class 2 Relic. Hosting three bishops on the island is going to be the highlight of Mrs Doyle's career, but unfortunately she's lost her contact lenses. Dougal philosophises on the nature of Heaven and Hell and all that, while Ted has to bring Jack through a few elocution lessons (Th-th-th-that...).


Episode 8 - Think Fast, Father Ted

Improv artist and actor Marcus Keeley conducts the inquest into the most crooked raffle in Craggy Island history. Music is in the air, with Father Finnegan the dancing Priest (RIP) and the Spinmaster Father Billy O'Dwyer on the decks. Father Austin Purcell's droning drives Jack to the drink - so we baptise a new feature Jack's Drinking Cabinet, Mrs Doyle sticks to her principles when it comes to raffles, Dougal spatial awareness is still a concern when exiting doors and Belfast gets an official mention!


Episode 7 - Hell

Colin Hassard joins us again to discuss Graham Norton's bow on the show as the relentless Father Noel Furlong. Father LARRY DUFF! He's tremendous fun, I'll give him a call. And Dougal's spatial awareness causes concern ("These cows are very small...")


Episode 6 - Grant Unto Him Eternal Rest

It's the last episode of Series 1 of ...Ted so we were buzzing! Unfortunately, so was the audio (sorry about that). 

Jack has briefly exited this mortal coil, which means Ted and Dougal have to attend to his wake. Mrs Doyle is tickled pink by all these women with their jobs and the mourners lament Jack's missed potential. He could have been Pope.

Episode 5 - And God Created Women

Actors Glenn Hamill and Christian Jackson discuss Ted's desires as he tries to woo superstar author Polly Clark. Mrs Doyle turns the air blue, and Dougal is even more confused by all the women around. Nuns! Nuns! Reverse Reverse!

Episode 4 - Competition Time

The classic Henry Sellers ("I MADE THE BBC") episode, Competition Time.
Hopefully you'll laugh as much as the largely overshadowed character, Barty Dunne; we get the first appearance of Dick Byrne; how many times Mrs Doyle says 'Ah, go on!' (it's hard to keep count!); lepresy; Craggy Island Rehab Resort; Hans Zimmer (you'll hear why); Going for Gold; Stars in Their Eyes; Elvis Aaron Presley and lots more! Except the English Papers.

Episode 2 - Entertaining Father Stone

Colin Hassard, Belfast's premier performance poet, joins us to host the dripping bore that is Father Stone as Ted makes a deadly deal with God. Wouldn't it have been better if he had been killed? 

Episode 1 - Good Luck Father Ted

In the first episode of Ecumenical Matters we escort Jack and Dougal to Funland, where the rides are deadly, Mrs Doyle offers her first cup of tea so we can start the 'Ah Go On' count, and Ted ditches the lot of them to hit stardom on Faith of Our Fathers.
