Series 2, Episode 9 - New Jack City
When Father Jack is hospitalised, Ted's hopeful that the drunken old letch won't return, and he'll be down to having to deal with just one dependent - but when Bishop Brennan sends Father Stack too be a new 3rd Priest on the island, Jack suddenly seems far more tolerable...
Father Jack's incredibly hairy hands seem to indicate that he is suffering from a common complaint that afflicts old priests. He is hurriedly sent off to the St. Clabbert's Old Priest's Home for immediate treatment.
However, Jack's replacement - Father Stack - is even more of a nightmare than the great man himself. Faced with this troublesome priest, Ted and Dougal decide to mount an ill-conceived rescue operation to get Jack back.
Desperate times call for desperate measures...
