Summary

"The Vicar of Dibley" is a British sitcom set in a sleepy Oxfordshire village. When the resident vicar, a 107-year-old man, dies, the stuffy villagers are in for a shock when he is replaced by fun-loving female vicar Geraldine Granger (Dawn French). The congregation react to her with a mixture of wonder and horror. Her appointment appals David Horton (Gary Waldhorn), chairman of the parish council and respected pillar of the community. Once it becomes clear that Geraldine has no intention of towing the line, he resolves to have her removed. Her other parishioners include dippy church verger Alice (Emma Chambers), David's dim-witted son, Hugo (James Fleet), likable, but boring parish council secretary Frank Pickle (John Bluthal), stuttering parish council member Jim Trott (Trevor Peacock), church organist Letitia Cropley (Liz Smith) and strait-talking farmer Owen Newitt (Roger Lloyd Pack). Created by Richard Curtis, the hugely popular series premiered on BBC One in 1994 and ran for 20 episodes in three series, with several specials across a 13-year period.
