Episode 17 - Are You Right There, Father Ted?

Belfast Comedy Writers Johnny Nicholl and Jonathan McCoy watch Ted insult a sixth of the world's population when he tries to impersonate a Chinese person. Dougal helps him come up with an idea, but he didn't realise there were a lot of small ideas after. Mrs Doyle uses a novel form of chiropractic after she falls off the roof and Jack develops agoraphobia.

Episode 15 - New Jack City

Lifelong Ted fan, Sean Treanor hosts the nightmarish Father Fintan Stack and his 3am jungle music, but at least he had his fun, and that's all matters. Jack's hairy hands has him stationed up in 'Jurassic Park', so Ted and Dougal have to entertain their new cereal-stealing housemate and Mrs Doyle manages to get her message above the din.

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 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 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 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.
