Father Ted - The Complete Boxset
First screened in 1995, the four-time BAFTA award-winning Father Ted tells the tale of three Irish priests and their housekeeper. Life is hard for Ted. Exiled to the remote Craggy Island (for reasons which never quite become clear but may have something to do with missing Church funds), he is forced to share a house with three of the most difficult people in Ireland...
First there's Father Jack (Frank Kelly), who has not been sober since 1936 and has a vocabulary which extends to three words - only two of them printable. Then there's Father Dougal (Ardal O'Hanlon): young, innocent and almost inconceivably stupid. And finally, Mrs Doyle (Pauline McLynn) the overly-attentive housekeeper who has one sole purpose in life - to supply the priests with cups of tea, usually against their will. Will the four of them ever be able to live in faithful harmony?
Comprising every episode across all the three series, this brand new complete series box set now also comes with bespoke illustrated packaging designed by renowned cartoonist Tony Millionaire, collectible art cards of Tony's illustrations, and a generous helping of extras:

If ordering from a UK store, please note that you are in Region 1 (DVD)/Region A (Blu-ray), whilst the UK is in Region 2/B, respectively. This means that many - but by no means all - may fail to play. Look for products marked "Region free", "All regions", "Region 0" or "Multi-region". Blu-rays may also be marked "Region A/B/C", or variations thereof. You may also check whether your DVD/Blu-ray player supports multi-region playback (also referred to as "region free"), or whether it can be set to do so. There should, of course, be no problems with books, CDs, or other physical items.
