It rapidly became a very successful sitcom.

The Vicar of Dibley follows the assignment of a women vicar (Geraldine Granger) into a village in the heart of oxfor-shire, after the death of their ancient priest Rev. Pottle. Dibley is a sleepy village populated by parishioners of the maddest variety, and the chocoholic, Sean Bean obsessed vicar Geraldine Granger has been sent into their midst. Get to know & love the villagers; Frank Pickle, the workds most boring man; Jim Trott, who can't string a sentence together; Letitia Cropley, the queen of cordon bleugh; Hugo Horton, who thinks kylie Minogie should be prime minister; Alice Tinker, who makes Hugo Horton look intelligent; Owen Newitt, local farmer & a stranger to personal hygeine. Not forgetting David Horton, snobbish, bad tempered, but ultimately loveable.
