The contemporary comedy about an inner city London vicar returns for a third series that asks big questions of the Reverend Adam Smallbone as he and his wife Alex adjust to life as new parents. How will Adam deal with parenthood on top of his small but demanding Church congregation? The new series brings a host of new characters to meet St Saviourās band of lost but loveable misfits as Adam is pushed to the limit by the dilemmas of modern priesthood: is the popular local Imam friend or foe? Should he stick to the Church of Englandās ban on gay marriage against his own better judgment? And with his Church in imminent financial peril can he continue to fight the good fight against indifference, the worst aspects of his institution and his own tendency towards temptation?

The third series has actually improved the mix of the already strong show. There may be less laugh out loud moments but the writers have managed to get the show asking serious questions about the treatment of faith in an increasingly secular society within a comedic setting. They do not appear to be scared of the fact the main protagonist is a christian which is a rare thing now. The acting is as strong as ever - Hollander in particular should be picking up awards for this run.

I love Rev. It is superbly acted and written. It has inspired many hours of conversation and discussion over issues raised which is a lot more time than I spend discussing most sermons I hear!. For me it is a faith lifter.

As with others, I watched and enjoyed the first two series' of the Rev and found it funny and warm, even when the subject matter headed towards the difficult. There's much said about this being 'laugh out loud' and hilarious, but I must say that isn't what I was left with after watching the DVD in an evening.

Let's get this straight, the acting is outstanding by all concerned. The story is powerful, thought provoking and all the other epithet's the artistic types like to use to hype a TV show and I enjoyed watching it. But...

I personally won't remember this as a hilarious, laugh out loud, side splitting tour de force in situation comedy. No, no! I was in awe of the performance of a genuinely decent, compassionate and caring man, who makes a mistake and is driven headlong into a depressive despair, to the point of hallucinations and of the stunned wife, genuinely and fairly hurt by the mistake made and I'll watch it all again a t some point, when I feel like a well developed, well written and well acted DRAMA.

Stunning? Yes! Brilliantly done? Yes. Something to watch after a crap Momday at the office, when you need a good giggle? Errr... maybe Mrs Brown's Boys might suit you better.

Being 'in the Rev business, so to speak - I have thoroughly enjoyed all three series, although Series 3 took a turn for comedy-drama and was none the worse for that!
Some critics have highlighted the swearing and marital life of the Smallbone's and seem to think that is unfair - really? The Clergy are human beings who are placed in a position of trust to care and minister to their Parish, but we also reflect their lives. Who in such an urban parish such as the Rev's don't swear or have sex with their wives/partners?
The last episodes where Adam becomes the victim of Nigel's spitefulness and has to answer to the Clergy Disciplinary Act was so moving - and also very telling about the absence of pastoral care. Very telling and perhaps too close to the truth?
Brilliant series altogether and hopefully reminds people that clergy are human beings doing a 'divine' job against all odds.

Review of content.

Beautifully and bravely written, this series has revolutionised the concept of "the sit-com". Indeed, it's high time a new name was coined for half-hour shows of this calibre that not only make viewers laugh but also make the audience feel and think. In this particular case, perhaps "Tom-com" would be apt. The acting by Tom Hollander and the entire cast is so exquisitely judged that it is a joy to watch - even when there's a lump in the throat and the eyes are welling up with tears. If there's any justice in the world and if the Rev's Man Upstairs is paying attention, there'll be awards all round.

Don't know why I missed this series in the first instance, so also bought series 1 & 2. Rev has a crisis of conscience with the attractive headmistress of the local faith school in this series and his faith is put to the test.

I loved Series 1 and 2 and was hoping Series 3 would be as good. I was pleasantly surprised: it was superb. Darker and more complex than the first two series, this one is again brilliantly scripted, with superb casting. Not sure how they can follow it with a fourth, that's the only problem..!

I enjoyed the first 2 series of Rev, but was unable to watch the 3rd series when it was broadcast so I treated myself to the DVD and was very impressed with the story-lines and acting, the casting was also very good There was also a good mix of humour and the more serious side of life
