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

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".

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.
