The Vicar of Dibley
The Vicar of Dibley is a British comedy sitcom written for television and produced by the BBC. The story revolves around the appointment of a female vicar, Geraldine Granger (portrayed by Dawn French) in the fictional town of Dibley in Oxfordshire, England.? The storyline was inspired by the then-recent changes in the Church of England in 1992 which resulted in the ordination of women becoming permitted. Over the years The Vicar of Dibley has come to be recognised as one of the BBC's most successful television shows, which is illustrated by the numerous awards it has received. These include several British Comedy Awards and two International Emmy Awards, as well as multiple nominations for the British Academy Television Awards.
