Series 2, Episode 1
The Reverend Adam Smallbone is back and life in his east London parish hasn't got any easier; his flock are just as demanding and his wife Alex has reached breaking point. So when Adam unwittingly thwarts a mugging, he's tempted to bask in the novelty of being hailed a super vicar instead of the usual clergy baiting, and enjoy Alex's renewed attraction to her hero husband.
But as the lie spirals out of control, Adam draws attention from on high...

When Adam pops into the corner shop he's pleased to discover being a local hero has its perks. The normally hostile Lisa behind the counter has transformed into an adoring fan...
Adam's escaped the hectic city for a few days at a silent retreat. But the peace and quiet is shatterd by the arrival of old friend and rival Roland Wise.
Having learned of Adam's plan to take some local schoolkids on a trip to see cows, Archdeacon Robert delights in bursting Adam's bubble.
Convinced that many of the children at Ellie's school have never seen cows, Adam decides to plan an education school trip to Dover to see some. Suicidal ones, apparently.
