I first rented this because I LOVE Richard Armitage (ever since I saw him in BBC's North and South. So I rented this episode to see him and I fell in love with the characters in this TV show. I began renting the entire series, and it really makes me laugh out loud! It centers around the arrival of the new Vicar to a small-town English community. Of course, expecting a stodgy old fellow, they are taken aback by the appearance of a lady vicar. The Holy Wholly Happy Ending episode, and the wedding episode are still my favorites though, and not just because I get to see Richard Armitage smile, for a change. Dawn French is an amazing talent, and her co-stars, especially Emma Chambers as Alice, are hilarious.

Zaniness with Dawn French and romance with Richard Armitage

"The finale of The Vicar of Dibley was a two-part special for Christmas 2006 and New Year Day 2007. The writers decided that the best way to send this great series out in style was to marry off Geraldine to the man of her dreams. Part 1 is their meeting and courtship (with some hilarious complications), and part 2 is the wedding. The dreamboat groom is Richard Armitage, currently glowering attractively as Sir Guy of Gisbourne in BBC's Robin Hood. As the fiance, Harry, he is charming, funny, and totally convincing in a romantic role that has to have a light touch. Did I mention that he is heart-stoppingly handsome? I just showed the two-part special to a group of my friends who had no prior knowledge of the series and they were laughing to the point of tears."
Dawn French + Richard Armitage = Fabulous!

"This is a two episodes of The Vicar of Dibley and the Comic Relief sketch for 2007 on Red Nose Day. Richard Armitage of the BBC's North and South plays the "Handsome Stranger" who romances the Vicar. The second episode is "Vicar in White" and is mostly about the planning for the wedding and the wedding itself. Both episodes along with the Comic Relief sketch are very funny! It is a must have for all Vicar of Dibley fans! And a must have for Richard Armitage fans, too! Fabulous!"
Not as good as the originals

"We love the Vicar and the loony town of Dibley. There will always be a soft spot in our heart for them, but, as with many season finales, this one lacks some of the charm and wit of the original series. Nevertheless, we still think it is an improvement over the tenth anniversary special. Though we are sad to see the characters go, it is probably time to for the town of Dibley to move on and for the story to come to an end. In that way, these final episodes provide some nice closure for fans. Still glad we own it and makes for a nice rounding out of the story."
