Vicar of Dibley
When their vicar passed away in the middle of a service, the inhabitants of a small Oxfordshire village expected his replacement to be another old man with a beard, a Bible and bad breath. Instead, they got a babe with a bob-cut. Geraldine Granger is a woman - yes, woman - who enjoys nothing more than a good laugh and a packet of chocolate hob nobs. The thoroughly modern, pop music-loving vicar is far from the only eccentric character in the village, however. Stars Dawn French.
