It's hell being a vicar... With a stellar cast headed by Tom Hollander and Olivia Colman, BAFTA winning comedy Rev. makes its divine debut on DVD 21st November 2011 from BBC Worldwide.

Meet The Rev. Adam Smallbone, (Tom Hollander) 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. 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 (Olivia Colman) 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, who has his eye on Adam's job.

Adam's door must always be open. From urban sophisticates to the 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.

With a stellar cast headed by Tom Hollander and Olivia Colman plus exciting guest stars Hugh Bonneville and Alexander Armstrong. Rev is an authentic comic portrait of the life of a modern, inner-city vicar and what life is really like in a dog collar. The successful launch of Rev. Series One attracted over 2.4 million viewers and was nominated for 7 awards scooping up the South Bank Show award and Best Situation Comedy at the 2011 Television BAFTA.

With exclusive footage including The Making of Rev. Character Sketches, a guided tour of the church where the show is filmed with a real Rev. Out-takes and Audio Commentaries, this DVD release makes perfect viewing for the congregation of Rev. fans.
