An Island Parish

An Island Parish

The beautiful Isles of Scilly has once again become the back drop of another BBC2 television show chronicling parish life on the Islands. Love is in the air for one lucky couple, the tourist season kicks in and Toby the baker indulges in a fantasy.

The new series of An Island Parish returned to our screens on the 19 September, BBC2.

The first episode sees Sophie and Mark the lifeboatman plan the wedding of the year. Meanwhile, the Minister the Reverend David rolls up his sleeves to help with the start of the tourist season - and Toby the baker indulges in a fantasy he has been dreaming of for months.

The first series followed Bishop of Truro, Bishop Bill, as he searched for the right person to become the new chaplain for the Isles of Scilly.

After much soul-searching, Father Guy Scott decided to leave his parish of Mullion, on the mainland, and apply for the position.

The second series followed Father Scott as he took charge of this remote and beautiful parish. It also highlighted the lives of people like; Toby the baker, who wants to take over the only pub on St Martin’s; Heike, the new German vet, struggling to make ends meet and local trawlerman Martin Bond, trying to revive the local fishing industry.

We also met island boatman Fraser Hicks, whose daughter Rebecca, like so many young people on Scilly, can't afford to live on the island of her birth; and Keri Jones, who is launched Radio Scilly, the world's smallest radio station.
