Thank you Jesus

The Vicar of Dibley, the story of a mid-life woman who enters the Anglican priesthood to be assigned a small parish of eccentrics in a farming community where no one else will serve, is one of the most hilarious TV works ever done.  Starring Dawn French and a collection of very funny characters, it ran on BBC from 1994 to 2007.  Three subsequent specials were done with the original crew until 2013, when the actor for perverted farmer Owen died, to raise money for comic relief.  French has decided to answer the prayers of a very devoted audience by reviving the series.  Now in production, the priest has been promoted to bishop and the program centers on her new duties.  Regrettably, advancing age prevents most of the old cast from participating  in the new series.


  1. a truly artistic gem that'd be great, no no no...yes

  2. The Steven Hawkins voice imitation was one of the most hilarious moments in my life
