'Rather Good' Rev
Ah this is splendid! It's that lovely word 'rather' again. In my estimation, Rev was rather more than rather good - how refreshing, how wholly unexpected to come across a comedy (or, come to that, any genre) that took religious faith, and its shadow, religious doubt, seriously. Is this a sign of change in the air, or was it a one-off, an aberration? It seems no second series of Rev has been commissioned, despite its success. That's rather a shame.
