Overview

Dawn French dons her cassock and collar once more for two very special episodes of The Vicar of Dibley, one of the BBC's most popular comedies. It boasts the brilliant comic writing of Richard Curtis, and a gifted ensemble cast including Emma Chambers and Richard Armitage. This set features two episodes: "The Handsome Stranger" - Gerry is fed up with all the "townies" buying weekend cottages in Dibley, until she meets one particularly charming newcomer. Could he be the one? Or is it Gerry's destiny to end up heartbroken in another 6-foot deep puddle? "The Vicar in White" - After presiding over the marriages of hundreds of other people, it appears Gerry's big day has finally arrived. Appearances can be deceptive, however, especially when the eccentric residents of Dibley are doing the planning! These two episodes aired as holiday specials on BBC1 on December 25, 2006 and January 1, 2007 respectively.

    A reviewer

    I doubt if I've ever seen an episode of this show without laughing till I cry - a lot. I have to say, the ending episodes of this show were so spectacularly hilarious that I still laugh whenever I think about it. Combine an amazing cast with the gorgeous Richard Armitage, and you're bound to have a great time!

    A perfect ending

    This is probably my favorite "Vicar of Dibley"! It's just the best series ending! Dawn French and Richard Armitage play off each other perfectly as Gerry and Harry. It's a must see for anyone who likes or loves the Vicar of Dibley!

    Farewell Dibley

    I have loved this series. The cast and crew are marvelous and play well off of each other. I didn't care for the bloke that they picked for Gerry but that was Dawn's choice. He was nice eye candy but I thought a more mature man would have suited Gerry better. Having said that, I will miss the wonderful actors who made up this series. Especially Emma Chambers and James Fleet who made Alice and Hugo so human. The only reason that I didn't give outstanding marks is that I would have liked more segments. I didn't want it to end.

    And in the End . . .

    As a fan of Dawn French's work both with Jennifer Saunders ""Absolutely Fabulous" "Clatterford "Jam and Jerusalem""" and without ""Murder Most Horrid," "Vicar of Dibley"" I have to say my opinion of this series is a bit biased, only because of my great admiration for all things Dawn. Now, throw in a well-rounded cast of eccentric but undeniably charming supporting characers, and without a doubt you have a feast for the belly-laugh, whether you're a lifelong fan of the british tongue or not. I cannot, however, say I wasn't a little bit surprised to find these two episodes as enjoyable as they are. Last year's specials, collected together for US Distribution as the "10th Anniversary Specials," were subpar at best. The character of Geraldine seemed to be hiding from Dawn, while Emma Chambers' Alice had become a caricature of the elements that made her such a success. However, this set of Christmas and New Year's Day episodes have found their footing. The comfortable elegance of Gerry has returned, while Alice has been completely revamped, no longer a bumbling, carefree child but now a semi-intelligent, but still missing the mark ne'er do well. Add into the equation the inevitable joy of seeing happiness finds its place in Gerry's heart via Armitage, and this disc becomes the stuff of legends. "The Handsome Stranger," is, in my opinion, on par with any of the episodes featured in the first two, spectacular series of the program, while "The Vicar in White" holds its own, still lightyears ahead of the rather atrocious AIDs in Africa ending to the New Year's special of the previous year.

    Rather good...

    While I wouldn't say this is the best, or my favorite of the series, it is rather a good ending. And Richard Armitage is certainly VERY nice to look at. I'd say the coupling didn't make too much sense to me, but then I heard Dawn French required someone younger and hot. :" It's certainly a must have for anyone who loves the Vicar of Dibley.
