BBC sketch show that while continuing to show the misadventures of a series of popular characters now also introduces a slew of new oddballs and misfits for us to enjoy including Tory Boy and The Lovely Wobbly Randy Old Ladies.
Two early thirties best friends live together while having completely different personalities. While their girlfriends try to help them take on more responsibilities the boys seldom respond well and usually end up drinking together.
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.Written by

The Vicar of Dibley was one of the big hit comedies during it's extended run from 1994-2006 and I'm sure it will live on and be remembered as fondly as sitcoms such as Are you Being Served from the seventies and eighties is today.
It isn't just the fantastic performance's from Dawn French that carries this sitcom because the rest of the ensemble cast who provide so much of the comedy.
Although I think the standard dropped briefly during the 2004 special the sharp writing of Richard Curtis meant that the series recovered to go out on a high with the ending in 2006 leaving the public wanting more.
There are so many great moments from this show that will live on forever and this is a testament to the fantastic writing and cast.
