Just to be quite clear.December 5, 2007
Apparently there’s a show entitled ‘The Real Father Ted’ coming up on BBC. It’s about Father Michael Cleary, who was not a model for Father Ted. Apparently someone in Broadcast connected with the show said something like “He was obviously an inspiration for ‘Father Ted’.”
So, just to be clear, ‘The Real Father Ted’, as a title, is bullshit.
