Father Ted is about 3 Irish parish priests one of whom is reasonably sane;one is 'thick';and the other just plain mad and dirty with it.They have a house-keeper, who just can't stop making tea.They all live on remote Craggy Island off the west coast of Ireland. This sit-com tells of the,sometimes absurb situations that they create for themselves.
She is the eldest of three children. Her mother is an art teacher and painter, and her father is a car ...
Mrs Doyle, played by is the parish priests' widowed housekeeper. Her first name is not mentioned on the show, but is given as Joan in a script. Whenever a character speaks her first name, background noise suddenly erupts, masking whatever is being said.
Mrs Doyle is a hyperactive, repressed and somewhat insane parish housekeeper with an over the top zeal for her work. Obsessed with refreshments, she is often to be found preparing copious amounts of tea, cake and sandwiches; she disdains an automated tea-making machine, stating that she "liked the misery" of making tea, and was devastated when Ted buys her it for Christmas. She eventually destroyed it and convinced Ted that she was the right person for making tea. She even stays up all night "just in case one of you needs a cup of tea!". Whenever Ted or somebody else refuses one of her beverages, sandwiches or cake she urges them on for some time, usually just by repeating "go on, go on", until the offending priest or guest finally agrees just for the sake of some peace. She then denies them the offered item[s]. In one episode, when Ted finally gives in, she decides that she is forcing him to have a cake, and tells him that he should just say no (which he had done several times), calling it a "word that Our Lord gave us to use when we didn't want any cake." She then proceeds to have the cakes destroyed.
