What, Exactly, Is His Job?: Doesn't really do anything around the parish. Justified, though, since the one time he does a funeral, it ends up as a complete disaster.
Father Jack Hackett
Played by Frank Kelly
The Alcoholic: Only appears to be sober once every twelve years or so. Whenever he does run out of booze, he'll drink whatever else he can find, including Toilet Duck and floor polish.
Ambiguously Bi: A skirt-chasing horndog who in one episode climbs naked into bed with Bishop Brennan (albeit while sleepwalking), later wakes up, smiles at Brennan and then goes back to sleep still in the bed with him.
Spot of Tea: Absolutely obsessed with making tea (amongst other things). When being demonstrated a Tea Master, she is told that it takes the misery out of making tea. She states that maybe she likes the misery.
Bishop Len Brennan
Played by Jim Norton
Badass Cape: Not even Vader's cape can billow like Brennan's.
Badass Grandpa: Is easily able to rip doors off their hinges or shatter them with his bare hands, and is capable of kicking Ted 20 feet in the air.
Bad Boss: Doesn't exactly hold Ted, Dougal or Jack in high regard.
Brennan: And Crilly? If you ever try to bullshit me like that again, I will rip off your arms.
Though on occasions when Ted seems to injure himself, he often shows sincere concern.
The Dreaded: Especially against Ted. Ted even takes advantage of this and is almost successful when he "kicks his arse" because he is supposedly too afraid to actually do it.
Dirty Old Bishop: Has a secret son in America and has been carrying on affairs in secret
