Simply because he is one of my favourite characters in Rev - he speaks to my heart!

Cut and pasted from the BBC website:

The smooth, urbane and eloquent Archdeacon is officially Adam's moral tutor – however, his fearsome managerial style is more terrifying than nurturing.

He's the Bishop's eyes and ears in the parish and has a knack for appearing at the most inopportune moments – whether it's a Sunday service visit on the day Adam has his smallest congregation since arriving in London, or catching Adam unawares in the pub.

Simon McBurney is a highly acclaimed multi-award-winning actor, writer and director. He was awarded an OBE in the 2005 Queen's New Year's Honours List for his services to drama. He is a founder and artistic director of the influential and famously inventive theatre company Complicite.
