    about 20 maybe 30 years ago on british tv there was a series about a monk/clergyman who was ambitious and was trying to make it to the top-

    encountering many sisters/nuns along the way but gets his just deserts in the end.

    anyone any idea know what this might have been?

    If you leave out the nuns it could well be The Barchester Chronicles. Filmed in the mid eighties, Obadiah Slope ( he changed his name from Slop), played by Alan Rickman was an oily curate whose double dealing and machinations eventually led to his downfall at the hands of women.



    A wonderful series which also starred Donald Pleasance and Nigel Hawthorne.

    hi yes i noticed it thanks Freddy i will need to see the others - certainly the time and length is right but i am certain there was more involvement physically and emotionally with the fairer sex (perhaps this did occur later)

    catch you later
