Father Ted: The Complete Scripts
Since they were banished to a remote island off the coast of Ireland because of mysterious clerical misdeeds, Father Ted Crilly, Father Dougal McGuire, Father Jack Hackett and their housekeeper Mrs Doyle have been entertaining countless Channel 4 viewers. While Ted dreams of a more high-class parish, Dougal attempts to grasp complex theological issues between games of Cluedo, Jack shouts 'Drink! Feck! Arse! Girls!' with little or no provocation and Mrs Doyle does her best to give Irish friendliness and hospitality a bad name. Father Ted: The Complete Scripts is, uniquely, a collection of late, but not final drafts - jokes, characters and scenes that didn't make it into the series are here, along with an introduction to each episode by the authors, which explains how the insane plotlines arose. So whether you're a fan of the show, or simply interested in how a comedy programme makes the final leap from page to screen, this book is all you'll need.

Is this the funniest TV series ever made? That would be an ecumenical question - but the scripts are every bit as head-spinningly funny as the shows themselves. Includes dialogue cut from the actual broadcasts, and brief but entertaining commentaries from the writers. I particularly liked their observation that you could add the word 'priest' to any adjective (or other descriptor) and get a new character: thus 'the dancing priest', 'the monkey priest', 'the laughing priest' and so on (all of these actually appeared in the series, too...)
Review: Father Ted: The Complete ScriptsUser Review - Goodreads
The greatest sitcom of all time. These scripts are like gold dust. There are some nice extras thrown in too.
