Will ye hold yer wheesht woman! ‘Tis naebody’s business but their own.
— Padre

The Reverend Kenneth Bartlett is the vicar of Tilling. Affectionately called Padre, he fakes a Scottish accent to best fit in with Tilling stock characters.

BBC Overview[]

A fixture at the bridge table, Tilling’s vicar (known to everyone as ‘Padre’) makes up for the dreary misfortune of having been born in Birmingham by pretending to be Scottish. He takes an active part in the social life of Tilling and must constantly weigh his heavy duties to the church against the more frivolous pursuits of the local residents. [1]
