So the Vicar of Dibley, Father Ted and the Baby-eating Bishop of Bath and Wells walk into a pub - More TV Vicar? gets under the dog-collar of some of the best loved 'Christian' characters on British TV - the good, the bad and the quirky. Among well-known characters including the Vicar of Dibley, newer characters are examined from programmes such as Bluestone 42 with its female army Padre, the curate from ITV drama Broadchurch and some of the more controversial vicar characters played by Rowan Atkinson in recent years. Some of these characters are satire, some are pure nostalgia, some are just toe-curlingly accurate. The church has provided a rich seam for comedians to mine, great characters for crime fiction and nostalgic storylines for soap operas. What do these stereotypes say about British society's view of people of faith? Why are we still seeing Christian characters on telly when all the news reports are about the church being in terminal decline? More TV Vicar? will take you on a tour of the last 20 years of British TV's idea of what a Christian looks like - exploring the rise of atheism, the loss of innocence and the nature of satire and provides a few laughs along the way.The book includes original interviews with Christian comedy writers Paul Kerensa (Miranda, Not Going Out) and James Cary (Bluestone 42) and an in-depth analysis of the social media reaction to the final episode of Rev, as well as cartoons by Chris Bambrough.
