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.

[on hearing that Hugo is going out with Alice, David redrafts his will]

Anything that Dawn French is in is Fabulous. Of course, Vicar of Dibley is one of my favorites simply because, as an Anglican, this focuses on a woman who is a priest. It is unprecedented - it came at a time when women struggled their way to become recognized in the Church of England and allowed to hold roles in the priesthood. The cast is wonderful and offers many opportunities throughout each episode for side-aching laughter. Of course, French can't take the cake by herself. Her sidekick, Alice Tinker (Emma Chambers), whose remarkable role as a "dingbat" (or as David Horton refers to her as a "moron) keeps the laughter rolling. And the comedy ends at each episode with the Vicar and Alice having a spot of tea and the Vicar telling a joke - usually with Alice not understanding the punchline. Genuine humor.
