Paul Pennyfeather, a dedicated divinity student set upon a quiet life of contemplation as a priest, is unceremoniously expelled from Oxford University through no fault of his own. This kickstarts a series of disastrous events that no-one, least of all Paul, could have anticipated. Without a private fortune to fall back on, Paul is forced to take a position as a teacher at a substandard boarding school in rural Wales.

sorry guys, I didnt make it past 30 minutes in. Yawn! and the dumbest premise for a show. I guess Im just a lowbrow but I think I gave it the best of chances.
Im sad to say it, as I a HUGE fan of most British TV and historical fiction and, of course, David Suchet!

Always partial to Evelyn Waugh, and I thought that this was a sincere, in the best of all possible worlds enactment of the author's satire.

I guess I'd call this a farce rather than a comedy. I didn't laugh, but I did see they were trying for humor by making fun of different classes and institutions. It was entertaining, but not wonderful. Some big-name stars help it along.
