Patrick Postman O'Patrick was a postman who's simply famous for being a postman. My grandfather was a postman once, but no one ever made a documentary about him. But then, life is unfair. He has starred in a TV show for many years, which shares his name. The show is in the style of Heroes and Bob the Builder. He died of cancer-of-the-AIDS on 29 July 2016.
Merchandise includes The Postman Pat Sex Toy in which you can play with his very large AND I MEAN VERY LARGE... nose. A video game for the X Box was entitled Postman Pat: Hit and Run in which you would run over the residents of Greendale in Pats van in exchange for points. The game outsold all Grand Theft Auto games put together and spent a year atop the game charts. The game of spinoff show, Killer Krystal, failed to top the charts but did place at #2 bestseller for a month.
The original series of Postman Pat's adventures. Only two series' were originally commissioned.

Pat decides to adopt a child to make up for Julian's disappointment and departure previously

Meanwhile, the Postal System undergoes a complicated overhaul, due to the part obliteration of the South Coast by Russia and America. Pat acquires a motorbike as a result, which Jess crashes into a local OAP (coincidentally the husband of the one Pat killed, which led to his confrontation with Morgan Freeman). As with all other characters, Jess is arrested. Pat and Ted think of a plan to try and save Jess from execution.
- Holiday - Pat saves Jess from death by saying that Jess also works for MI5. The jury believes this, and for compensation, gives Pat, Jess, Krystal, Ted, Mrs Goggins and Farmer Thompson a free holiday to Australia for no reason. The six go and take part in a variation of Australian sports, including Kangaroo Snap, Bushwhacker Bait and Speed Sex (in which Pat has sex with Krystal) before coming home for the semi-final against favourites... Blackpool.

As celebrations erupt, Kyle trains his gun on Pat. Cliffhanger ending - is this the end?
Following the critically acclaimed Series 7, every broadcasting company across the globe wanted a piece of the action. As a result, the series was a patchwork of different companies takes on Postman Pat. This was also the first time since the first series that the series was independently produced. It also brought about starting a much sought-after 'clean edge' to the series. Series 8 & 9 were originally intended to air together, but the last half of the episodes (which later became series 9) didn't air due to many of the writers being called up to serve in World War 3.
- Postman Cat - Pat wakes up from a coma after being shot by Kyle, and finds a very different world to the one he left behind. Jess has taken Pat's old job at the royal mail (Greendale Post Office has been re-opened due to a kind donation from an anonymous source), and has also eloped with Goggins to an undisclosed location. Pat realises that he has nothing left, so turns back to the bottle. Kyle is seen escaping from jail, but is found trespassing on Farmer Thompson's land and is shot.
- Brand New Days - Julian returns to see Pat and helps him through his terrible ordeal. Realising that Julian is all he has left, Pat becomes determined to come clean and get Julian back. Jess and Goggins send Pat a postcard of Jess doing 'unspeakable things' to Goggins, which reads "don't you wish you were here?". Ted vows to help Pat clear out all his substances to be a good father to Julian, but accidentally uncovers some heroin in Pat's bathroom. Julian vows never to return, and states he is going back to live with Dorothy. Pat is shocked to hear that she is still alive, and begins to plan to win them both back.
- Ted & Pat's Inebriated Adventure - In the process of clearing out all Pat's substances, Ted & Pat end up on a narcotic binge and wake up in bed together. Scared that he may have done the dirty with Ted, Pat flees Greendale while trying to piece together what happened...and what exactly that camera and that lion were doing in the bedroom.
- Postcards From The Past I - In an attempt to once again forget the twisted affair with Ted, Pat goes to a laboratory in search of some "Super Cocaine". This turns out to be some experimental timewarp powder and Pat is hurtled into the past. He arrives at the moment he was shot by Kyle, but changing this results in Kyle vowing revenge and then torturing Julian.
- Postcards From The Past II - Pat arrives at the moment he first met the little black and white bastard that is Jess. The episode is basically a clip show of all the good times the two spent together as Pat is in two minds about killing him. These flashbacks last too long, however, and Jess is butchered when Granny Dryden accidentally kills him with a ride-on lawnmower. Job done. Pat throws the remains into a compost bin at Thompson's farm. On halloween. Cue the start of 'Guess With Jess'.
- Straight Edge Pat - Pat gets rid of the remnants of his sordid past and returns to work for the royal mail. His first package is some 'legal highs' for Niggs.
- "You Heard Me, I'm Straight!" - After a particularly bad night, Ted runs to Pat to tell him that he is now heterosexual. Farmer Thompson uncovers a pendant that used to belong to Granny Dryden.

- Radical Highs - Pat pursues Ajay to Thompson's farm, where the two battle for Julian. Niggs then blunders along, high as a kite, and shoots Ajay in a stoned haze. Julian and Pat get away as Niggs falls asleep next to Ajay's body. Niggs is sent to prison.
- Dear Dorothy - Pat convinces Dorothy to return to Greendale but as she is flying over, Pat gets visited by Goggins - who wants Pat back. Ted agrees to "take care of her" as long as Pat goes and inspects Farmer Thompson's discovery. Dorothy comes home and everything is fine. Goggins vows never to return to Greendale after a night of rampant sex with Ted.
- The Cat's Out Of The Bag - Farmer Thompson shows Pat his discovery - Jess' collar and grainy photographs of Pat and Jess together. Pat begins to fear that something is wrong with time, and arranges it so that royal mail send him to deliver a package to the laboratory. The scientist (guest star Stephen Hawking) tells Pat that the past can never change, and time will seek to correct itself. Regardless Pat goes home and, after blaming Julian, beats him with a shoe.
- Calling Cards - Julian and Dorothy are called over to America by a distant relative who claims that they have found something of interest to the two. Pat then decides that this gives him the perfect cover to try his attempt at fixing time. He calls it his 'final solution'. When the city reject plans to allow him to build a concentration camp, however, he simply rents out a nuke from the laboratory.
- If At First You Don't Succeed...Nuke! - Pat drives away from Greendale after collecting his final paycheck, taking only Ted with him. Pat activates the nuke, destroying all remnants of Greendale. Pat then realises he left his trademark hat there, and hopes that it somehow survived the explosion. When he arrives there, he is met by Granny Dryden. She tells him that MI5 is only one of the projects, and she is also a servant of time. Pat mocks her, until she pulls out a rifle and claims killing him is the only way. She shoots Pat, but Ted mows her down with Pat's truck and then causes the truck to explode. Cliffhanger ending - is Pat finally done for?
The fanbase of the series were uncertain where the series would go after the killing off of so many characters at the end of Series 8, but the pilot of this series showed that figures shot through the roof to see how the series could survive. The majority of this patchwork series was produced by the BBC, so we see Pat's trademark dark side come out again. The series began to compensate for the often outrageous plot lines with the development of character, such as watching Julian grow up and the introduction of Father Bates. However, during airing, the BBC turned their noses at certain episodes and prevented them from airing - all part of their new politically correct agenda.
- Call The Angels - Pat is pronounced as good as dead by doctors at Goldbale general hospital after the rifle wound, but he makes a miraculous recovery and thanks Father Bates for it. Father Bates says that in return, Pat must evict this troll that has taken up residence in one of the houses he owns. The troll, who looks a lot like Mrs. Goggins, kills Ted by ripping his arm off and forcing it...well, somewhere uncomfortable. Pat, furious and distraught, cries as he is lifted into the air by the troll. His huge nose runs and the troll is drowned. Father Bates thanks him and, since Ted is now dead, allows him to live there for as long as he needs to.
- Pilot Pat - While meeting the locals, Pat is forced into the cockpit of a plane in order to deliver post to Greenland. The irish Pat robot from Series 7 returns, now built onto a fighter jet. However, Pat tricks the robot into flying into a passenger jet full of American lawyers. Everybody celebrates. This also probably helped the rise in figures as this episode was selected as the pilot for this series.
- Welcome To Goldbale! - Dorothy and Julian return from america with news: long-lost uncle Patrick is planning to visit. Pat takes a dislike as they share the same name. Dorothy and Julian visit the notable landmarks in the city...that's about it. Lowest ratings of the series.
- The Problem With Cheese (Unaired Episode) - The episode consists of, for the first half, Pat attempting to overcome his constipation and have a great big dump. The second half consists of Pat attempting to fix the blockage problem before Bates notices.
- If I Had A Gun... - Goggins returns and tells Pat that she is going to tell Dorothy everything about their past. Pat states that if he had a gun he would blow her brains out...she replies that she doesn't need a gun, she's already done that to him. Bates comes along afterwards, and informs Pat that Goggins is his ex-wife. Pat later does kill Goggins with a silenced pistol, but Bates then reads Pat's diary...
- The Breakdown - Dorothy reveals that Goggins left her a note, telling her everything. Pat then goes crazy when she tells him she's leaving, locking her in his cellar. Bates is performing an exorcism in vatican city so he is away for a while, so Pat decides to relax for a while. He visits the local meadow and gets urinated on from a moving vehicle.
- Who's Your Daddy? - Julian gets laid. Pat finds out. Good times all around. The first episode of Postman Pat to show post-watershed due to Julian's Sex Scene.
- Mourning Son - Dorothy dies of HIV and Pat begins mourning. As he is unresponsive, Julian seeks guidance from the church. Bates, who has just returned, takes advantage and touches Julian to get back at Pat.
- Dutch Courage - Pat returns to his alcoholic ways. Julian begins to worry about what effect it will have if he tells Pat about Bates.
- May God's Love Be With You - Julian tells Pat about Bates, who then hunts down Bates and confronts him. The two fight atop the church, and Pat tells Bates that Goggins was murdered by him. Bates loses his cool and charges at Pat, who winds him with a crowbar and throws him off the top of the church. Bates dies in what can only be described as "something akin to throwing a haggis off the eiffel tower".
- Rent Boys & Their Toys - After a few quiet weeks, Pat is slowly getting off the drink when he walks in on Julian and the local rent boy at it like rabbits. Pat disowns Julian, saying that he has no son.
- Twilight Time - Pat visits the local pub and wakes up with his nose embedded in a local woman's buttcrack.
- To The Moon(Rocks) (Unaired Episode) - The episode was scheduled to air post-watershed, but the BBC pulled it off schedule at the last minute and replaced it with springwatch. Frankly, it would've been safer to show this. Pat goes on a blackout binge with a bottle of whisky and ends up at the start of the world's longest line of cocaine, leading to some marijuana and moonrocks.
- New Friend - Pat befriends a dog called Bruno after a local farmer is trying to kill it for eating his chickens, something which Pat in fact did while drunk the night before.
- You Can't Spell Friend Without End - As Bruno and Pat are delivering a package of sleeping pills, some apples and a new mirror to a queen, they drive past Julian at the edge of a cliff. As Pat plans to push him off, he notices that Julian is being held at gunpoint by Jess. Pat questions how Jess can exist, and Jess simply states that it only took him to travel back even further in time to prevent it. Pat and Jess have a quick skirmish, culminating in the two beating each other to the ground and talking. Pat attempts to reason with Jess, saying that the change must have corrected itself and they can live happily again now. As confusion and panic spreads, Jess snarls and lifts his pistol. The shot pans away to a longshot of the cliff and a gunshot is heard. Cliffhanger ending - what happened?
Series 10 was the first completely independently produced series ever. This new approach saw the wacky plots begin to take focus again and the characters get pushed onto the backburner. This was also the first series since season 3 to not become critically acclaimed. Although the first episode received amazing ratings and phenomenal reviews, the overall series suffered. Many think this is due to martians invading earth and declaring war...but that's a completely different story. The story follows immediately on from series 9, tying up loose ends. It also sees the end of Goldbale and the return of many of the characters from Greendale in some form.
- The Pat Attack - Julian, having been shot, falls backwards off the cliff and plummets into the ocean. Jess, in shock, fires towards where the gunshot came from...locating Niggs. Niggs was furious that Pat never visited him in jail and, realising that he will inevitably go back there for killing Julian, turns the gun on himself and kills himself. Pat reunites with Jess and Bruno skulks off, plotting revenge for being abandoned.
- Postman Pat And His Black & White Cat - Pat is recruited to deliver packages for Goldbale Post Service, and Jess accompanies him. Pretty simple & boring episode. Sub-plot includes Krystal being kicked out of Pat's house.

- A Case Of Cat v Dog - As Pat defeats Krystal, Jess arrives and keeps Bruno occupied. A massive skirmish follows, with Jess just about defeating Bruno and throwing him into the ocean. Pat throws in Krystal and the two walk off into the horizon, happy at a job well done.
- Skinning A Cow - Pat is asked to deliver a package of fine leathers but loses them. He spends the whole episode producing some fine leathers.
- Goodbye Goldbale - When Pat's house is burnt down, Pat goes on a blackout binge and ends up starting the 'Great Goldbale Fire'. Escaping with Jess in his van, Pat heads to the city. Little does he know that Linda is hiding in his van...

Series 11 came out following the mixed-reviews of Killer Krystal, receiving good reviews as it showed that there was life still left in the series.

Cliffhanger ending - what happened?
Series 12 marked the end of the war with the martians, leaving it up to Pat to celebrate the finer things in life. In the new age of decadence, the producers were asked to return the series to it's dark & narcotic-infused roots. So that is what they did. The series was divided into two following the murder/suicide of a key writer and the actor who played Ajay. The second half of the series aired six months after the first half finished.

- The Last Stop - The final gig of Pat's sellout tour arrives...but Pat doesn't. Smiles begins his set and Pat is still absent. It is up to Beaterschmidt to find Pat.

The spear is then seen hurtling towards Pat...is this the end?
Following the mixed reception to series 12 and a turbulent year for the economy (the world's latest dictator had gone a bit mad and had made chocolate coins legal tender), series 13 was in the pipeline for over a year and a half. This led to writers leaving left, right, centre and even above. It also led to a bitter, cynical and less-humorous tone to episodes than previous series'. As filming of the first ten episodes got under-way, the actor who played Julian left the series to become - ironically - a postman. The final ten episodes had to be rewritten accordingly and, due to a contractual agreement from series 10, the final episode of the series had to be produced by an independent company - another move that shocked fans. But Pat was confident that his series would maintain high standards of excellence. It did. But ratings did not follow fashion and dipped drastically. Due to this, and the fact that most writers were either dead or had left, the BBC gave the show two more series - allowing it time to end on series 15.

Meanwhile, Ted and Smiles desperately attempt to break free from Ajay's house but are gassed and locked in the cellar.
- Dead In The Night II - The episode is also a remake of the previously unaired S12.5 episode. Smiles and Ted manage to escape from the cellar upon waking up as Ajay has foolishly left the door open. As they do so, Ajay strikes down Pat continues his battle with Ajay until Ajay manages to threaten Ted with death - subduing Pat.

Series 15 was referred to as "the biggest risk in television history" by BBC and "a final dive back into the deep end for the writers" by ABC. Pat referred to the series differently, saying "it's brilliant. I'm in it. Of course it's brilliant. I'm in it. It's not the best, but I save it. The series went downhill for a while. Imagine a load of geniuses after a car crash, all brain damaged and whatnot. That's what happened as of series 11. This is the next level though. The recovery. A brief spark of genius returning to the brain dead heads." Series 15 is set to be the final ever series of Postman Pat and is tipped to see the return of Sanjay and Thompson, the final battle between Hummingbird and Pat, the truth revealed about the series and the true nature of Pat and another key character to be shown. It is also hinted that Julian will play his most important role to date...as Pat's nemesis. Due to the fact that this was the final commissioned series by the BBC, the writers spared no expense. To get their revenge on the BBC, they wrote in as many famous faces as possible to litter throughout the series. They also made the final episodes as expensive to produce and film as possible.

The theme tune for Postman Pat was released as a single. As it was successful, a new Postman Pat song was released entitled Smack My Bitch Up. The song was at number one in the charts for 6 months. It then faded into obscurity for several years, before being played in Series 9 as Pat assassinated Goggins. It then jumped into the charts at number two, where it remained for the next 3 weeks.
Another song, Get In The Van, was featured as the theme tune for the latter half of Series 9 and failed to chart at all. However, it charted at number three several months after the series finished airing when it was performed live at Live Aids: Postman Pat's Benefit Concert.
I've Got A Package for you was the first Postman Pat song to not be released as a single, as it featured in Series 9 during Julian's sex scene, to chart. It went straight to number one and remained there for 11 months.
The lyrics for the original theme tune were:
Postman Pat, Postman Pat...
Postman Pat and his black-and-white, syphilis infected penis...
Early in the morning...
Postman Pat's out whoring...
Postman Pat's a very slutty man.
An alternative, unreleased version of the theme song is as follows:
Postman Pat, Postman Pat, Postman Pat ran over his cat,
Blood and guts went flying,
Postman Pat was crying,
Postman Pat was full of dismay,
But one thing he just had to say,
He'd never seen his cat as flat as that!
So here is the lesson,
It's by far the Best'un
So learn it please, be a Gentleman,
Pat will never drink and drive again!
Multiple other songs have been featured in the soundtrack to the television series. Most are by unsigned bands as the BBC did not have to pay them for the rights to their music. However, several other songs with explicit lyrics have been included, mostly by Iron Maiden, Muse and Gorillaz.
Postman Pat was extremely sexually active and was diagnosed with HIV between Series 5 and 6. He then received cancer-of-the-AIDS after his show ended. He suffered in rehab, before partaking in a mass shooting. He then suffered a MAJOR heart attack on 29 July 2016, and died later. Fireman Sam paid tribute to his friend on Bookface:
