Storyline

Jessica Rattigan, wife of a bishop, will stop at nothing to preserve the family name, and over two series of "Revelations" she conceals her husband's involvement in the death of his secretary, murders her daughter-in-law Rachel and buries her in the garden, has an affair with Rachel's brother Steve, then abandons him to be blown up in a petrol explosion when he discovers that she murdered his sister. Other characters include creepy housekeeper Mary, Jessica's cousin; Gabriel, Jessica's gay son; Mark, her randy son-in-law; and Charlotte, her promiscuous daughter. The second series is by far the best, every episode well-paced and tense. "Revelations" deserved a wider audience, was compulsive viewing, and bettered many a soap shown at peak viewing time. Unfortunately, it was usually shown at times revolving around midnight. Written by Michael Baxter <danemead@bt_openworld.com>>

One of TV's Lost Gems
27 May 2007 | by Chancery_StoneSee all my reviews

Revelations was a fabulous 'soap' that deserves to be far better known, , covering material that maybe appears on other soap operas, but with a style and verve they usually completely lack.

Running the gamut of covert incest, homosexuality, sibling rivalry, infidelity, illegitimate children, drugs, revenge and murder it resembled nothing more than a Jacobean drama disguised as a late-night soap.

I've never seen a TV drama quite like it before or since.

It was also remarkably well cast with fabulous performances from all the leads, but particularly from Stephen Mapes as a wonderfully fragile, over-cosetted and very sexy Gabriel. I've never understood why he hasn't achieved more fame as an actor.

I enjoy very little TV - it's not my entertainment of choice - but this was a stand-out for me (along with Dangerous Lady - another underrated masterpiece).

If you like dark stories with sub-rosa story lines about repressed and hidden feelings you'll love this.

Someone needs to issue this on DVD and get it the recognition it deserves. A true cult classic in waiting.
