Greats At Eight: The Vicar Of Dibley

Throughout February, Gold is serving up some of the best sitcoms of all time, with week-nightly double episodes from 8pm that showcase the best from each one.

Greats At Eight: The Vicar Of Dibley

Greats At Eight focuses on a different classic comedy each week. Later this month we have Fawlty Towers and The Good Life but, right now, it's the turn of the classic sitcom with Dawn French as the Reverend Geraldine Grainger, coming to terms with a brand-new parish and a whole new cast of village characters.

Monday 12th February at 8pm

In Songs Of Praise, the parish is visited by The Songs Of Praise production team but Dibley doesn't have a choir, which is rather a drawback for the programme. Next, in Community Spirit, Geraldine hopes to liven up the Autumn Fayre by finding a huge celebrity to open it.

Tuesday 13th February at 8pm

In The Window And The Weather, an unfortunate accident involving a big tree leaves St Baranbus' Church in need of a new stained-glass window. Then, in Election, the local elections are looming and David is confident of victory, but he's not counted on Geraldine who may prove to be a formidable opponent.

Wednesday 14th February at 8pm

In Animals, Geraldine decides the Sunday service needs a radical overhaul and proposes turning the chapel into a wonderful new ark - but parish council chairman David is far from impressed. Next, in Celebrity Vicar, Geraldine becomes a celebrity after doing 'Pause For Thought' on the Terry Wogan show but fame carries a price.

It's an hour-long special with The Vicar In White where, at last, the Vicar will attend a wedding in a dress, not a dog collar. Or will she? Unfortunately the vicar Geraldine has chosen for the service seems a little bit too fond of her and the villagers have waited until now to suggest their two worst ideas ever - a sky diving wedding and something far, far worse.

Friday 16th February at 8pm

In The Easter Bunny, the villagers decide to give up something they love for Lent, but can Geraldine really abstain from chocolate? Finally, in Winter, Alice solves the problem of the Christmas show by proposing a promenading Nativity in which she and Hugo will play Mary and Joseph.
