Tom Hollander was in the House today. He was speaking to students about the third series of Rev, which is about to be aired, as well as his inspiration for episodes in the previous two series and his experiences researching, writing and starring in the BAFTA-award winning programme.
Rev is a sitcom which follows the life of Adam Smallbone, vicar of a parish in London. Tom spoke about his vision for a comedy which retained a respect for the faith which it represents and shared some of the issues which have arisen from this. He also gave a range of anecdotes from his research for the programme, including many funny, as well as serious and deeply moving, experiences of vicars seeking to support the communities which they serve.
