Mrs. Doyle

doyle-01Back in the parochial house of Craggy Island we find ourselves, and it’s small wonder we’re being offered a cup of tea from Mrs. Doyle. Go on go on go on go on go on go on. The suitably over-the-top housekeeper and virtual carer for Ted and company has a mug prepared for every occasion, but she’s not just a tea lady; she can often be found digging ditches and falling off the roof. The place would go to pot without her.

    She would be one of my favourite characters of all…and expertly illustrated by you and thanks for the funny video. Great work! B

      Thanks so much, Bill! I would say there are times when she is the best thing about Father Ted, but it’d be a disservice to the others. They’re so collectively fantastic.

  2. I’ve not seen that show but you did a brilliant job of giving her a humorous odd expression! 😄

      Thanks, Teresa – it certainly was tougher than I expected, with the angle of the head, her expression, and the much-dreaded hands (screams!)

  3. I enjoyed her and the other wonderful cast members. Looks like I can still “stream” it. Need a rainy day for a marathon here at the cafe–whoops that’s every day!

      Haha, domestic goddess is right! I don’t think Mrs Doyle has ever been called that before 😛 The show is already on your list from the last visit I believe! 😉

      • Was it? Oh dear… I guess I really shouldn’t be making these lists in my head and should write them down somewhere! lol

        Haha! As should I really… so many films you’ve mentioned. I did see a bit of Dirty Dancing recently, but I seem to remember that was one of your lesser recommendations. 😛

      Thanks Michael – it went a little askew somewhere I think, but happily still seemed to fit!

    Doylicious! What a classic pose – you’ve captured the entire essence of Mrs D in one pic. My son is methodically working his way through Father Teds, and we had go-on go-on go-on two nights ago; I’m eagerly awaiting his response to the priests lost in the department store… 🙂

      Thanks Rebecca – I can’t help but think it was your cup of tea that brought out the Doyle in me! Great to hear your son is enjoying them, and indeed, that Christmas episode is a festive highlight for me! Brilliant stuff.

    Father Ted is great. I get excited when people know about this show. Brilliant job you’ve done here. Was going to ask what medium, but only just noticed it’s a digital drawing. It’s “Tea-riffic!”

      Thanks again. I get excited too! Somehow, it seems to maintain a ‘cult’, cosy feel even though it was/is a hugely popular programme and is shown endlessly. I’ve loved Ted from the age of about six or seven – just wonderfully outrageous and silly!

      • It wasn’t quite as big over here ( Australia), and it’s not really shown at all here these days, so it definitely has more of a ‘cult’ status here! That’s great that they still show it over there. i really like Graham Linehan’s sense of humour. Whenever i visit my dad we break out the dvd’s for a Father Ted marathon. Good times!
