Derek Nimmo starred as Brother Dominic, a novice monk at Mountacres Priory. The bashful brother is accident prone and cannot stay out of trouble.

Fortunately, his superior, Father Anselm is a kindly and forgiving man of the cloth. His colleague Father Matthew is not as understanding and finds Dominic’s clumsiness irritating.


Of the 19 episodes, only nine are still in existence. Sadly the other ten have been lost forever. Nimmo reprised his role in the 1973 series Oh Father!.
