Storyline

The 100-something vicar of the small English village of Dibley has passed on. A new vicar has been requested for a replacement. What they get is Geraldine Granger, a non-traditional, chocolate loving, rock n' roll playing vicar. That is not what gets the citizens of Dibley in a uproar though. It's because she is a woman. Still, that doesn't stop Geraldine from proving her worthiness to the village. After time, the villagers (with the exception of influential David Horton) accept Geraldine as The Vicar of Dibley.

Trivia

Liz Smith only found out about her character (Letitia Cropley) being killed off, when she received a phone call from a junior member of the production team, when the scripts were being sent out. She was very upset and disappointed at being written out, and the fact that neither Dawn French nor Richard Curtis bothered to break the news to her personally . See more »

Quotes

Reverend Geraldine Granger: We're at a bit of a loss for items for the church newsletter. The best we have is a piece about David's missing watch which is actually rather a mystery.
Jim: [pulls a watch from his pocket] Here, is this it?
David Horton: Oh, yes, thank you.
Reverend Geraldine Granger: Great. Now our main story is "Hen lays rather large egg".

Make sure you are wearing rubber pants - you'll wet yourself laughing
16 April 2008 | by See all my reviews

What can I say that has not already be said, except that I stupidly sat down and watched all of series I in a single sitting and had serious laughter pains in my stomach and tears rolling down my cheeks. Oh the sheer joy. Just started on series 2 with series 3 in the mail from the US. The standard doesn't seem to have dropped, incredibly, it just rises. Dawn French and company (lets not forget the writers) manage to entertain at an incredibly high level - every single line is a gem - the end of episode joke after the credits should not be missed - it is so bad it creases you up with laughter.

The show is a blast - a perfect 10/10.
