DOES THE DATE ’21 April’ mean anything to you?

No, it’s not the anniversary of the ice-age ending.

21 April is, in fact, the date Father Ted was first broadcast – way back in 1995 (if you’ve been reading this website, you’ll have known that already – if not, check out our Ted 20 coverage here).

Anyway, co-creator of the seminal comedy Arthur Mathews is dropping by the office here tomorrow afternoon for a chat to talk all things Ted.

We wanted to let our readers know in advance, so you could get your questions in.

Good sport that he is, Arthur’s agreed to spend some time answering the nerdiest Father Ted questions we can all think of.
