The BBC is likely to face a Christian backlash over a new drama series featuring a graphic murder, homosexual sex and the exorcism of Mother Teresa.
The series, which has been likened to a horror film, depicts a man possessed by the devil and being skinned alive in a gay sauna.
Another episode shows a father threatening to sexually assault his daughter while in another, Mother Teresa is seen on her death bed.
In other scenes blood drips from the eyes of those supposed to be possessed by the Devil.
The series, called Apparitions, was the idea of the actor Martin Shaw, who also stars in it as a Roman Catholic priest.
Catholic bishops advised the scriptwriters and production company to help them portray the exorcism accurately, but a spokesman for the Catholic Bishops' Conference said: "I will not watch the drama myself, it is not tasteful.
"I haven't seen it but people might well be shocked. I have to stress, it is a work of fiction. The Catholic Church would not have chosen the drama form to explain the issue of exorcism."
I wish their Lordships and their Conference were just a little more careful a times.
