Series 1, Episode 5 - And God Created Woman
Ted ends up playing host to one of his favourite novelists, the rather attractive Polly Clarke. Meanwhile, a group of Nuns are also scheduled to pay visit to Craggy island.
Temptation comes to Craggy Island in the shapely form of womankind, as Ted struggles with the twin temptations of satisfying a horde of nuns slathering over his latest Mass and indulging his own passion for Polly Clarke, his favourite writer and author of bonkbuster 'Bejewelled with Kisses¿.
As it turns out, Polly is using Craggy Island as place to get her head together after the break-up of her marriage. Much to Mrs Doyle's disgust, she spends the night at the Parochial House, and her womanly wiles beguile Ted - who completely gets the wrong end of the stick.
Confusing their literary conversations with a come-on, he cuts short his famous Mass and heads to Polly's cottage for a romantic dinner a-deux. As it turns out, Polly's actually invited him to her housewarming, along with Dougal, Jack and a gaggle of nuns severely disappointed with a certain Father Curley.
