Dawn French stars in four classic episodes from the original BBC TV series.

Arrival/Songs of Praise/Easter special/The Christmas Lunch Incident

Welcome to Dibley, a perfect village somewhere in rural England. It's full of some perfectly peculiar people - including Alice Tinker and her underactive brain, Owen Newitt and his overactive bowels, and Letitia Cropley and her orange cake with Branston pickle icing.

Then there's David Horton, the council ruler, who has everything in the village running exactly as he wishes - until the day 102-year-old Reverend Pottle dies. That's when the trouble begins, for the new vicar of Dibley is none other than a babe with a bob and a magnificent bosom - otherwise known as Geraldine.

In these four instalments by Richard Curtis, writer of Four Weddings and a Funeral and Notting Hill, the vicar increases the church-going public, finds something remarkably attractive about television, learns about suffering by giving up chocolate for Lent, and promises herself too many Christmas lunches with too many people.

Gary Waldhorn, James Fleet, Roger Lloyd Pack, Emma Chambers and Trevor Peacock also feature in these classic BBC TV episodes.
