The Vicar of Dibley

I have been having great fun this past week watching the first 3 seasons of The Vicar of Dibley. Dawn French is just too funny! Well, they all are but she makes me laugh just by looking at her!

It's the story of a female Vicar assigned to a small conservative village. Her parishioners are at first surprised at having a woman perfoming the services but in time they get used to it and everything seems to go along smoothly. The Vicar is a lively and bubbly figure always enjoying a good joke, chocolate, rock'n'roll and looking for love without much luck. She is caring and truly interested in other people. The parishioners are not exactly your ordinary people their comments about each other and life in general are sometimes too silly and other times astonishing but always very funny which makes for some LOL moments in every episode.

The show usually starts with a meeting of the Parish Council and ends with Geraldine, the vicar, telling a joke to Alice, the verger. Although the jokes are usually rather funny Alice analises them as if they were real totally ruining them and never getting what's so funny.

The show ended with 2 christmas episodes last year and 1 comic relief special but recently there have been some news of a comeback. I certainly would love to have a few more to watch!


  1. This serie is totally hilarious! My favorite episode, as you already know, it's the 1st Christmas of Geraldine at Dibley (did you saw this one?) and I can't wait to see the other two seasons. The characters are completely surreal (especially Alice!!) but you are right, they are all very funny. I can only imagine how much fun they had doing this serie.;-)

  2. Not yet because I don't have the specials. It seems if I behave well I might get them in the future!! ;-D

  3. Keep your wings tidy and you might just get what you want! ;-)

  4. Oh yes you can come and check how perfect and white they are!!

    Maybe this can help.:P

  6. Thanks Alex, I'm going to save it in my favorites. One never knows when one will be accused of having a dirty wing... :-D
