A British SitCom, starring Dawn French as Geraldine Granger. Following the Ordination of Women into the Church of England, Geraldine replaces the old archetypal [[TheVicar vicar]] in the sleepy and quirky country village of Dibley. The village has to get used to the laid back "babe with a bob cut and [[BuxomIsBetter a magnificent bosom]]" being their new vicar, while Geraldine herself has to cope with a village full of lunatics and inbreds, as well as the corrupt machinations of councillor David Horton. [[HilarityEnsues Hilarity]], as they say, ensues.

An entire human-sized freezer of Haagen-Daas in one sitting is beyond the appetites of ''most'' people, but not Geraldine.

* MythologyGag: There's a little one in "Celebrity Vicar" where Geraldine, who had just recently done a radio talk show, was mistaken for singer Alison Moyet. Moyet was previously the guest star in an episode of ''Series/FrenchAndSaunders'', where while waiting for her to arrive Dawn French went on stage singing a Yazoo song pretending to be her. She was semi-successfully pulling it off to an audience of mostly senior citizens.
