Father William is a story within the story and as such departs a little in style from the rest of the illustrations. I hit upon the idea of using reference to different t.v clergy for each of the four panels. Panel 1 is the living room of Father Ted, complete with Father Jack’s rancid armchair.
Panel 4 is a diversion from the theme in that the background features a reference of a much darker nature. The church you can see is All Saints Church Fulham, the setting for the gruesome death of Father Brennan by being skewered by a falling lightning rod in the horror film The Omen. An odder reference is the giant fish viewable in the body of water in the background. It is from an old European fantasy film, “The Singing Ringing Tree”. Which, more than The Omen for me, was the stuff of my childhood nightmares.
