If you’re expecting a selection of your favourite episodes from The Vicar of Dibley, then you’ll be in for a bit of a surprise,
For what we have here instead is Dawn French in conversation with John Plowman, the show’s producer,
Together, they introduce and analyse the characters and relive key moments from the series, neatly categorised under such headings as “Chocolate”, “The Nearly Wedding” and “Celebrity Appearances” (don’t forget they enticed both Kylie and Darcey Bussell onto the show, as well as a host of other celebs),
So, it’s very much a selection for diehard fans who want to be reminded of the highlights (and there are plenty), ranging from Alice’s Teletubby bridesmaids to the arrival of Geraldine’s mega-freezer, packed to bursting with Haagen-Dazs,

To watch this 90-minute film is to be reminded of just how brilliant–and topical–the concept was,
The writing is as fresh as ever, as are the priceless group of characters who bring the scripts to life,
From the very opening moments, when Geraldine turns up and jokes that they were expecting a man “beard, bible, bad breath; instead you got a babe with a bob cut and a magnificent bosom”, you know you’re in the presence of an enduring comic creation,

On the DVD : The Best of the Vicar of Dibley offers pretty minimal extras–an entertaining feature on real-life women vicars, laconically but pertinently narrated by Jo Brand,
Harriet Smith
