Product Description

The first two series of the BBC sitcom set in an inner London church. Tom Hollander stars as Reverend Adam Smallbone, a Church of England vicar who is promoted from a sleepy rural parish to the failing inner-city church of St Saviour's in East London. As he struggles to contend with the complex moral conundrums of his urban parishioners as well as a delapidated church and a dwindling congregation, his long-suffering wife Alex (Olvia Colman) does her best to support him - but, far from being a conventional vicar's wife, she has her own career as a solicitor to worry about.

Rev is too short: only six measly episode per series. And only two series, so far. But that might not be a bad thing. Like Spaced, it might just be two series is enough, the perfect amount, and to go any further would be to ruin something lovely, and it could end up on Series 4, and go all rubbish. Like Prison Break.

The writing in Rev is - in some places - absolute genuis. The characters are splendidly acted, and the dynamics between them are sometimes subtle and touching, other times violent and sweary.

I particulary like the Archdeacon, who always pours his coffee away. I don't know why that makes me laugh; it just does.

Summary: watch it. You'll like it. And if you don't, Jesus will hate you.

5.0 out of 5 stars Rev - series 1&2 7 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase
Tom Hollander is superb as downtrodden and slightly faith-confused head of St Saviours. Great interaction between a host of characters who crop up throughout pretty well every episode including long suffering and rather amazingly supportive wife, Colin the drunken but eloquent tramp (is he the voice of God or Jesus throughout?) and a small group of others who help show how tough and exasperating being an inner-city cleric must be in the 21st century.

I really enjoyed watching Rev on the TV when it was broadcast, so I bought it for my girlfriend's parents at Christmas and they have been really enjoying it.

I really like how Rev is adult comedy without the need to be really crass and rude and is generally pretty sweet, in a cute sort of a way.
