Season 1 Synopsis

A young, enthusiastic vicar - who also happens to be a woman - is appointed to the sleepy country parish of Dibley. The congregation, all six faithful souls, reacts to her arrival with a mixture of wonder and horror.

"You were expecting a bloke with a beard, a Bible and bad breath. Instead, you got a babe with a bob cut and a magnificent bosom," Geraldine explains to her new flock.

Her appointment appalls David Horton, autocratic head of the parish council. Once it becomes clear that Geraldine does not intend to play second fiddle, David resolves to have her removed. Meanwhile, he becomes her implacable opponent.

Undaunted, Geraldine steps full of unbridled confidence and unbounded optimism into Dibley's quaint world, where her parishioners include some of the most addle-pated eccentrics under the English sky.

In the course of events, Geraldine and Dibley come to terms with each other, and join forces to revitalize the parish together.
