Rev: Series 1 - DVD out today (Monday)

FINALLY, just what we have all been waiting for, the Rev Series 1 DVD is out in shops today.

Synposis cut and pasted from Amazon:

It’s hell being a vicar…

Meet The Rev. Adam Smallbone. He’s a Church of England Vicar, newly promoted from a sleepy rural parish to the busy, inner-city world of St Saviour’s in Hackney, East London. It’s a world he has no experience of. And it shows. It really shows.

Rev. is an authentic (albeit highly comic) portrait of the life of a modern, inner-city vicar. Heavily researched and supported by anecdotes from a number of working city vicars and church insiders it lifts the lid on how the modern church actually functions, and what life is really like in a dog collar.

Raks's take

I love Rev! It is genius. The writing is sharp and witty. Tom Hollander is brilliant. The ensemble cast are outstanding. And it tackles hard-hitting social issues in a light entertainment programme.

Highly highly recommended.

Buy it from Amazon here:

I pre-ordered mine and so it arrived on Saturday - I literally cannot wait to relive Series 1!
