Return to the loopy English village of Dibley, with this DVD containing the complete third series of THE VICAR OF DIBLEY, Richard Curtis and Paul Mayhew-Archer's divine comedy hit from the BBC.
"Autumn" - Alice and Hugo return from their honeymoon with some unexpected news, meanwhile Geraldine's romance with David's roguish brother Simon heats up.
"Winter" - A very pregnant Alice wins the role of Mary in the annual Nativity play by default and causes a furore when she actually goes into labour during the performance!
"Spring" - Gerry makes plans to establish a creche at St. Barnabus.
"Summer" - When water shortages threaten the village, Gerry stages a protest against a proposed new reservoir. Meanwhile, the council members discuss the subject for a possible millennium commemoration statue.
Lots of fun with all your favourite characters. Starring Dawn French, Emma Chambers, James Fleet, Gary Waldhorn, John Bluthal, Roger Lloyd Pack and Trevor Peacock.
The DVD includes a couple of great bonuses: "Ballykissdibley", which features Father Clifford from BALLYKISSANGEL vistiting the town of Dibley. The 1999 Red Nose Day Special features Gerry mingling with Johnny Depp, Fergie and more when a film company sets up shop in Dibley. There's also a fascinating doco called "The Real Vicars of Dibley" which charts the lives of similar real-life vicars who lead unconventional lives. Includes interviews with the cast and writers of the series.

The adorable Dawn French returns as the female vicar of a small English village in cherished BritcomThe Vicar of Dibley. These four extended episodes center around love: Hugo (James Fleet) and Alice (Emma Chambers), the most dimwitted newlyweds of all time, get pregnant, while Gerry (French) falls in love with the prodigal brother of the wealthy landowner David--only to have David (Gary Waldhorn) himself propose to her later. In the final episode, a new reservoir threatens the entire village. While there's always been a taste of the absurd inThe Vicar of Dibley(Kylie Minogue popping up in the first series, for example), the third series stretches reality a bit too much at times--but even the most improbable ideas are rescued by one of the best comic ensembles in television comedy, wonderfully anchored by French.
