Publisher's Summary

Four classic episodes from the original TV series: Arrival, Songs of Praise, Easter Special and The Christmas Lunch Incident. Welcome to Dibley, a perfect village 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.
Council ruler David Horton has everything running exactly as he wishes - until 102-year-old Reverend Pottle dies. That's when the trouble begins, for the new vicar of Dibley is Geraldine, a babe with a bob and a magnificent bosom. In these instalments, 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.
Starring Dawn French, with Gary Waldhorn, James Fleet, Roger Lloyd Pack, Emma Chambers and Trevor Peacock.

Warm and Funny

A pretty much straight conversion from the TV series (as far as I can tell) this works surprisingly well on audio only, the warmth and humour come through and it has become one of my favourite repeat listens.

Dawn French is of course wonderful as the vicar but the supporting cast bring to life an array of characters that are both bizarre and endearing and work perfectly in combination with the lead.

My only criticism - I really wish more episodes were available on audible :)
