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

Dawn French 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 »

Quotes

[showing photos from their honeymoon to Geraldine]
Alice: This is a nice woman we met on the plane. She was a bit tired when we got to Turkey so Hugo was ever so nice and carried her case through customs.
Geraldine: Right, I think I can anticipate the next picture.
Alice: That's customs opening the suitcase.
Geraldine: Wow! How much cocaine is that, Hugo?
Hugo: I'm told a street value of £82 million.
Alice: Still, they let him go the minute they realized he was innocent.
Geraldine: Which was?
Alice: Er... 14 months later.

Loved the show!
25 September 1998 | by See all my reviews

Loved the show. Histerical! Dawn French is delightful. Why can't us Americans learn something of GOOD comedy today from the English. They seem to have it down pat.
