The Vicar of Dibley episode guide - Series 1

ARRIVAL: After the death of their boring, 102 year old Reverend, the villagers of Dibley anxiously await the arrival of their new, young vicar Gerry. What they don't know is that Gerry is short for Geraldine rather than Gerald, and therefore they are rather shocked and horrified to discover that the new vicar is a woman! This introductory episode to the series tells of the initial conflict that arised with Geraldine's arrival at St Barnabas' Church, and the prejudice she faced at first. But gradually the villagers grew to love the friendly, outgoing Geraldine Granger, all except for David Horton...

SONGS OF PRAISE: When the BBC hear about Dibley's new, female vicar, they decide to film an edition of 'Songs of Praise' at the church. Of course David isn't exactly thrilled about the idea, but eventually Gerry talks him around. However, she's not that excited about it all either, until she lays eyes on the show's young, gorgeous producer and starts practicing her kissing techniques with the mirror!!

COMMUNITY SPIRIT: The time comes for Dibley's annual fete, but Geraldine is shocked to discover that the most money ever been raised by such an event is less than 300. She sets about trying to improve this amount by attempting to get a celebrity to open the fete. However, this doesn't turn out as easy as it first seems, until it is discovered that Alice has a distant cousin named Reg Dwight...!

THE WINDOW AND THE WEATHER: After Dibley is hit by a storm, St Barnabus' large, stained-glass window is unfortunately smashed. When it comes around to ordering a replacement, the Church Committee have problems remembering what exactly the picture on the window was - they can't decide whether the man with the beard is Jesus, St Barnabas or a librarian!! However that's the least of their problems when David points out that the cost of a new window would be at least 11,000!! This is where Geraldine steps in to help, relying purely on her skills of negotiation!!

ELECTION: As the village elections draw nearer, Geraldine sets out to help the villagers get a local bus service. She's sure that even David would make a better councillor than the present one - that is until she finds out that David is the present councillor!! The villagers come up with a new candidate - Geraldine, and David's obviously not very pleased about the fact that the whole of Dibley are intending to vote for her!!

SERVICE FOR THE ANIMALS: Being in the countryside, Geraldine realises that a large amount of Dibley's villagers are very devoted to their pets and animals. So she comes up with the idea of giving a church service especially for the animals of the village. This gets a varied response, and David calls the Bishop demanding immediate action against Geraldine. But the vicars sticks with her idea, hoping and praying that the service will be a success.
