Revelations was a late-night soap opera created by [2]

Notably, it contains an episode in which a female vicar, Joan (Sue Holderness), comes out as a lesbian in a two-hander with Mary Beckett (Carole Nimmons). It was the first openly LGBT character for Davies, who would later go on to create and produce the gay-centric series Queer as Folk, Bob & Rose, Torchwood and "Cucumber".Davies attributes the storyline to the "pressure-cooker nature" of the series leading to larger storylines, and the recent ordination of female vicars in the Church of England; Davies recalls that "when they introduced women to the church, I was thinking 'Yes! We can do a lesbian vicar!'".[2]
