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.

Did You Know?
initially requested to play Alice Tinker, because she felt the vicar wouldn't be funny enough and that she understood Alice's humor. She later requested that the Vicar have some sort of faults - hence her being a bit lonely, a bit vain, and having a massive chocolate obsession. See more
I just hope Hugo doesn't go off me now.
Why would he go off you, you stupid little idiot?
I don't know, I might lose my female sexual allure. I'm already putting on weight. I've put on four pounds in the last month, that's a pound a week. If I go on at this rate by the time I'm fifty I'll weigh 82 stone which is more than a walrus, and I don't want to look like a walrus.
Alice, you haven't been feeling sick at all, have you?
Yeah, every single morning.
If you wait until the end of the end credits, the vicar tells a joke. See more
