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.

Thank you Audible!!

What did you love best about Vicar of Dibley 1?

I loved the TV series and this is an audio only version of the show.

What other book might you compare Vicar of Dibley 1 to and why?

The Good Life and Fawlty Towers are two other BBC televion series transferred to audio exactly as aired with the exception of brief narration. The Good Life and Vicar of Dibley are both very warm and funny.

What about Dawn French’s performance did you like?

Dawn French is able to deliver barbs and sarcasm without a hint of malice, never losing that lovely feeling that she genuinely likes these kooky characters

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I had to ration it out slowly since there are (as of yet) no more in the series.

Any additional comments?

I hope audible will make all of these wonderful shows available soon!

Love Dawn French! But downloaded it by accident...

What made the experience of listening to Vicar of Dibley 1 the most enjoyable?

I love the Vicar of Dibley! I have all the seasons on DVD...

BUT... I was just cking out the Audible bk. pg. and wanted more info. on it , I accidently tapped the wrong spot and it immediately downloaded. It is the exact episode I already own on DVD, I haven't listened to it as I was hoping for a refund but wasn't sure I could get one (?). It still show's that 0% of it was listened to...

Be careful what you 'tap' on if you have a Kindle Fire, it cost me $14.99 and I won't even use it since I already own the DVD as mentioned above. Sorry.
