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.

Quotes

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

Hugo: [long pause] On the contrary ...

Funny, lighthearted and uplifting
24 March 2001 | by joshualiederSee all my reviews

I borrowed this series on videotape from my local library after a couple of women in church suggested it to me. I love the show, from its opening music to its silly joke after the credits. Not usually a fan of "foreign" humor but the characters in the series are warm, crazed, real folk who make you smile. Thanks for entertaining me. I would love to have a Vicar just like yours in my town!
