Father Ted co-writer Graham Linehan has said that he never plans to re-visit the hit comedy show.

Speaking to the Radio Times Linehan revealed that he often gets sent in suggestions for new episode plots but he is happy to leave the show at its original run of 25 episodes.

Linehan explained, “I would never bring Dougal back. Someone suggested to me a way of doing it but I am totally a different person now. We have said everything we have to about the imaginary world of priests.”
