Episode two introduces the new curate, Abigail
It's important for the show and the characters to evolve and to offer fresh stories, but not to change the essence of the show created in series one. (See the above clip.)
The atmosphere on set was far more relaxed and fun this time around, with actors really settled into their characters.
In episode two we had the challenge of filming wild animals for the crack squirrel sequence.
Our crew waited for hours during the main shoot in a local park but had no luck. So we managed to stretch our budget and find the money for a dedicated squirrel filming unit to go out a few weeks after the shoot finished.
Our location manager had spotted some good mangy-looking squirrels near one of our locations and we returned stealthily, set up our camera, laid out mixed nuts and waited.
Eventually several squirrels emerged and we got our shot.
Peter Cattaneo is the director of Rev.
