1996 Easter Special (#107) Duration: 38:32

With the arrival of Lent, the parishioners are thinking what they may give up in preparation for Easter. Mrs. Cropley makes the difficult decision to forgo lard and fishpaste pancakes. For Geraldine, however, her true sacrifice is to give up her beloved chocolate.

2005 New Year's Special (#306) Duration: 47:37

It is the start of 2005 and Geraldine is very keen to celebrate the 20th anniversary of Live Aid - something the villagers are not initially over-enthusiastic about. Finally, she convinces them all to write to the Prime Minister - only to find out that all but one think Margaret Thatcher is still in charge of the country. Geraldine is less keen to celebrate her landmark 40th birthday - in fact, she doesn't want it mentioned at all. Naturally, the Church Committee disagrees and sets out to make it a birthday to remember.

The Handsome Stranger (Part 1 of 2) (#307) Duration: 53:17

The chocoholic vicar decides to bring some culture to England's most eccentric parish by forming a book club - the only downside being that it involves the likes of foul-mouthed, but lovable Owen Newitt actually reading a book. Somewhat surprisingly, the vicar's none-too-bright best friend, the wonderfully dippy Alice, has managed to decipher the clues in The Da Vinci Code and has come to the conclusion that she is, in fact, the last living descendant of Jesus Christ. Geraldine, in the meantime, is quite frankly fed up with 'townies' descending upon Dibley and buying weekend cottages - that is, until she meets one particularly charming newcomer... After presiding over her 100th marriage and despairing of ever finding love, romance is in the air and it looks as though the handsome accountant Harry Kennedy could finally be the one to whisk the vicar down the aisle. But, as always, the festive season in Dibley does not run smoothly and Geraldine almost ruins things by mistaking Harry's glamorous blonde sister Rosie for a love rival.

Upcoming Broadcasts:

The Vicar In White, Part 2 (#308) Duration: 55:30

Could charming, handsome Harry be Mr Right? Or is he Mr How Wrong Can You Be? When Harry asked Geraldine to marry him she couldn't say yes quickly enough. Naturally, things don't quite go according to plan. The vicar presiding over the wedding ceremony seems a little too fond of Geraldine and the villagers seem determined to take over all the preparations for the big day. With Alice keen on a Dr Who theme for the nuptuals, and the threat of the video being shot in the style of Saving Private Ryan, the festive season in Dibley is, as ever, a truly unique ecclesiastical experience - and a charming tale of love, confusion, unrequited love and utter chaos with a very happy ending indeed.
