Our Man at Saint Mark's

Show Summary

Welcome to the Our Man at Saint Mark's guide at TV.com.

"At first an amiable and even sentimental comedy, Our Man At St Mark's set out to depict the gently humorous incidents that can befall a country village vicar as he works his flock of parishioners and weaves his way in and out of their daily lives.

"Leslie Phillips—usually typecast as a woman-hungry cad—was the man of the cloth in the first series, being somewhat unusual in that he had a girlfriend. (Not, of course, of the live-in variety.) In the second series, however, his fictitious parish, Felgate, was sent a replacement, the dog-loving Stephen Young, who, like his predecessor, depended to a great extent on the support of the loyal but sometimes stern vicarage housekeeper Mrs Peace who, in reality, was the backbone of the community.

"The first two series of Our Man At St Mark's, then, were quite light-hearted, but the humour went a shade darker in the third when more serious social issues became the focus, causing the episodes to be screened later in the evening. Some light relief was added, however, in the shape of Harry Fowler, who reformed from being Harry The Yo-Yo—so called because he was always bouncing in and out of jail—to becoming Young's scooter-riding sexton and gravedigger.

"There was another change of direction in the final series, literally: Stephen Young was promoted from Reverend to Archdeacon and, with Mrs Peace, moved from Felgate to Lynchester. Appropriately, the show's title altered subtly to Our Man From St Mark's." (BBC Comedy Guide)moreless
