Meanwhile Cathy has had yet another disastrous internet date so Agnes takes some unorthodox steps to put her daughter's man troubles to rest once and for all.

Seasons come and seasons go, but the show Michael Gove calls "pure genius", the omega to Father Ted's alpha, remains defiantly unchanged, even at Christmas, despite the addition of a bit of tinsel on the set. Father Damien sets up a Neighbourhood Watch patrol; Cathy has another terrible internet date ("I need a man!" Mrs Brown: "Don't look at me!") and there's a whole lot of fecking going on. In a word: untaxing.
