Rev.
It is an impossibly difficult job being a good, modern, city vicar. And, equally, it's a very hard job being married to one. Alex - Adam's long-suffering wife - does her best to support him, but she's got her own career as a solicitor to worry about. And she is no one's idea of a conventional vicar's wife. Anybody can and does come into St Saviour's - and into Adam's life. From scheming MPs trying to educate their children on the cheap to Colin, a heavy drinking, unemployable lost soul who is Adam's most devoted parishioner. Then there's Mick, the local crackhead in need of 20 to visit his 'dying mother' in Southend... She's died three times in the last 12 months. Every day throws up a new moral conflict for our vicar. Everyone always wants something from Adam - all the time. Even his supposedly supportive Lay-reader Nigel, a pedantic careerist with his eye on Adam's job. Adam's door must always be open. From urban sophisticates with ulterior motives to the chronically lonely, the lost, the homeless, the poor and the insane. All are welcome at St Saviour's and Adam can't turn any of them away. Even if they're clearly lying, mad or just very annoying. In addition to caring for his flock Adam has to worry about the financial burden of running a huge, decaying building - with a smashed stained glass window - and a dwindling congregation. He has to contend with hopeless volunteers, ambitious church rivals, the sinister attentions of the Archdeacon and the romantic attentions of Adoha, a renowned 'cassock-chaser' and church regular. 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.

Below is a list of broadcasts scheduled to air in the next 60 days on any of our three channels.

Episode #107
Airs Thursday February 5th
The Reverend Adam Smallbone's back and life in his London parish hasn't got any easier; his flock are just as demanding and his wife Alex has reached breaking point. So when Adam unwittingly thwarts a mugging, he's tempted to bask in the novelty of being hailed a super vicar instead of the usual clergy-baiting, and enjoy Alex's renewed attraction to her hero husband. But as the lie spirals out of control, Adam draws attention from on high.

Airs Tuesday February 10th
Abi Johnston (played by Amanda Hale), a talented young curate, comes to train at St Saviour's. Lay Reader Nigel's green with envy, and even Adam's initial enthusiasm at the prospect of someone to cover weekends off soon gives way to doubt in his own abilities as a priest when he realizes just how brilliant she is. When Colin decides his vicar needs cheering up, Adam inadvertently gets the chance to experience religious versus chemical ecstasy.

Episode #110
Airs Tuesday February 17th
The church school is up for religious inspection and head teacher Ellie's confident they'll pass with flying colours, thanks to inspiring new teacher Mr. Feld (Adrian Bower). The only problem is, he's an atheist. Adam clashes with Ellie, but has another battle on his hands - he's signed up for an interfaith football tournament and the St Saviour's congregation rather lacks young, fit athletes.

There's a hole in the church accounts and the Archdeacon's ready to pounce. Salvation appears to come in the form of a wealthy city banker (Richard E Grant) who arrives at St Saviour's to join Alcoholics Anonymous. However, Adam's mind isn't on balancing the books - serial blagger Mick (Jimmy Akingbola) has arrived on the vicarage doorstep with a much bigger ask than the usual twenty quid, and Adam takes a huge risk.

Ambition is in the air. Pedantic Lay Reader Nigel has always believed he'd be a far better priest than Adam and finally gets the chance to prove it - or not. The Archdeacon also has lofty ambitions for career advancement, but a surprise encounter throws a rather different light on things, and even Colin has got a new job. Meanwhile, Adam faces questions about his own future and has a big decision to make.

Christmas
The busiest time of year for a vicar, and Adam is full of ideas for his first Advent in London. However he soon discovers that Christmas at St Saviour's is quite different to his sleepy Suffolk parish. He's under pressure from the Archdeacon to maximize Seasonal profits, the diary's packed with unusual events and he's up at the crack of dawn every morning to cook breakfast at the homeless shelter. Exhausted, with a permanent hangover and Midnight Mass looming he's in no mood for a house guest - least of all Alex's cantankerous father Martin (Geoffrey Palmer).
