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 »

David Horton: Ah Hugo, I was just showing the vicar my new will.
Hugo: Come on papa, you're not that angry. It's like the time you tried to convince me you were Father Christmas. I saw through that and I can see through this.
David Horton: Then you see wrong. If you continue to consort with that Tinker twerp, you will no longer be welcome in this house, you will no longer be my son, and as this will attests, you will have *nothing*.

A souvenir I brought home from the UK
13 April 2002 | by (Hamburg, Germany) – See all my reviews

I watched an episode of this series first on a holiday in England, not knowing what it was. Dawn French was in it, reason enough for me. What I got was amazing: A series full of weird but so amiable characters which I had never seen anywhere before. I instantly adored every minute of it. Now it's the only series I own completely on video/DVD and even after the hundredth time watching it I still want to see it once more.

My urgent plea to any German broadcaster: Show this ! The comedy in Germany became much better over the recent years, but nobody can top this. So show it!!!

I rate this 12 out of 10!
