Vicar of Dibley | Dawn French videos
When we are in a situation where things are not going our way, we may have a wide range of emotions. At times, it may make us want to retaliate, but most of us restrain ourselves because we understand the implications of doing so. That doesn’t mean, however, that we don’t wish we could do it. When they are having a water crises in Dibley, they certainly are up against a wall. Things just go downhill when they find out that they are not only having a problem with water, they are about to lose their homes when the village [More]
When we want to protest something and see some positive change, there are many ways to do so. Some of us will do something drastic or perhaps we may write a letter to show our dissatisfaction. At other times, however, we might consider having a petition signed and it is a great way to have the voices of many people heard. In Dibley, they are facing a serious crisis. They are about to lose their homes but they aren’t about to go quietly. They start to organise the signing of a petition, but things don’t go as well as they [More]
Each person is different and those differences may show up in many ways. We often see it in action when we are around others and sometimes it doesn’t have the most attractive results. That is especially true when money is concerned because it tends to bring out the worst in some people. Dibley is having a crisis. They are all losing their homes because of plans for a new reservoir but the vicar is planning on fighting those plans tooth and nail. The same can’t be said for David, who is thrilled that his property is going to fetch a [More]
Sometimes we all need a good laugh and the best way to get one is to hear a joke. When they are told right and by the right person it doesn’t even matter if it is a particularly good joke. We just need it to be entertaining and then we get the laugh we need. When the Vicar of Dibley show comes to an end, it often does so with a joke. In fact, that is something that we all look forward to. The vicar tends to tell a joke to Alice and they may not be the funniest joke [More]
Have you ever really been upset about something and felt as if you needed to take things to the next level? Of course, we have all felt that way at some time or another. Sometimes we feel so passionate about it that we write a letter, or more than likely, an email to voice our opinion. The town of Dibley is experiencing such a crisis when they don’t have enough water. When they hold a committee meeting, David lets them know he has written a letter to voice his dissatisfaction. The only problem is that the letter is very polite. [More]
It doesn’t matter who we are, we are going to be passionate about something. Sometimes, it makes us do things that we wouldn’t usually do, especially when we aren’t getting our way. Some people take it to the extreme but others go through normal channels to let their voice be heard. On the Vicar of Dibley, they are also passionate, and that is especially true when someone tries to take away their town. They had a petition signed (with the funniest results) but it seems as if the vicar needs to take things to the next level. She does so [More]
It doesn’t matter who we are, we all can appreciate when we have a special event in our lives. At times, it might be a wedding or maybe the birth of a child but something we all can remember is our honeymoon. It was something that was a once in a lifetime event. For Alice and Hugo, the honeymoon was something that had waited for a very long time. When they got home, they shared their pictures with the vicar, including the one where they carried the bag through customs for another person. In the end, Hugo ended up in [More]
When was the last time you were in a very uncomfortable situation? Perhaps it was just a day or so ago or we may need to think back a while but in either case, it usually sticks out in our minds as being something most disturbing. It doesn’t even matter why it happened, just the fact that it did happen is enough. In this clip, we are looking in on one of those uncomfortable situations but the good news is, we aren’t directly involved. It happens to the Vicar during a committee meeting. David is absent, which is odd, but [More]
When we have a shortage of water, it can certainly make things difficult. Not only do we have to put off necessary things, such as flushing the toilet or watering the plants, we can also be thirsty from a lack of water as well. It is a frustrating problem that we would rather live without. When Dibley is experiencing a water shortage, they are facing some difficult decisions. The vicar seems to be handling things well but when she sees Alice watering the plants, she gets upset. That is, of course, until she finds out that she is actually watering [More]
When we become parents, our lives are going to change almost from the first day. It seems as if everything revolves around the baby, especially when it comes to sleeping. They often dictate when we sleep at night and during the day, they can even dictate how we behave when they are napping. It appears as if Alice and Hugo and running into a similar situation. The baby is taking a nap but they are expecting company so they come up with a most brilliant plan. They decide to talk by writing everything out and they expect their guests to [More]
If there is one thing that most of us have in common, is the fact that we love music. It tends to be a part of our lives from the time that we were very young and even when we get older, we tend to enjoy it and allow it to shape us in many ways. There are also differences between generations, however, and it may sometimes end up being a rather amusing situation. In this video clip, Alice turned on the radio and it is newer music, at least as far as the vicar is concerned. She talked about [More]
When we try out for a part in a play, it can be a very exciting time in our life. More than likely, we take the time to learn the parts and we really throw ourself into it. We may even be up against some rather tough competition, so the better we do, the better chance we have of making the final cut. In Dibley, they were trying to put on a live nativity scene and one of the things that they needed were the three wise men, sometimes also referred to as three kings. The problem is, nobody seemed [More]
When most of us are together for a meeting, we try to be as formal as possible but that doesn’t necessarily mean that we are going to follow all of the rules of parliamentary procedure. As a matter of fact, most of us don’t even know those rules and even if we were to try, it is unlikely that we would stick with them stringently. That is the case, however, when the committee meets for a meeting in Dibley. That is especially true because David Horton is in charge of the meeting, and he wants everything to be run just [More]
There are many things in our life that we might consider personal, especially now that we have entered the electronic age. Even before there were multiple mobile phones and everybody seemed to have their own personal computer that they carried around with them, there were also privacy issues that we all appreciated. One of those was then and still is the phone. When the phone rings at the vicar’s house, Alice is the first one to jump up and run over to get it. It sometimes can get on the vicar’s nerves, however, because she would like to answer her [More]
Although we try to do the best that we can in life, there are going to be times when we have regrets. That is why many of us can relate to the old Frank Sinatra song that states “regrets, I’ve got a few.” Of course, when we do have regrets, we try to take the time to make them right to the best that we possibly can. It doesn’t always work out that way. The vicar is upset over her recent issues and the way that she acted with a man. As a result, she stops going to church on [More]
One of the worst things in the world is when we are anticipating something good and something bad happens out of the blue. It typically takes us by surprise and that is something that we may have a difficulty overcoming. When it happens in our own life, it can be very frustrating but when we see it happening to someone else, it is rather amusing. In this video, the vicar is expecting a man to come over and she gets everything ready in advance. The problem is, the doorbell rings but it is not who she was expecting, it is [More]
There are many special moments that we may enjoy life. Some of those that we might appreciate more than others include the day that we get married and, of course, the day that we have any children. Another day that may be special at the time and something that we chill cherish down to this day is the date that we realise we are pregnant. It is on that day that we recognise we are starting on a long-term project and one that we look forward to doing. Alice came over to visit the vicar and the more she kept [More]
One of the most special events in any of our lives is going to be the day that we get married. It is not only the fact that we are joining together with our significant other, we also have a honeymoon to look forward to as well. Those are events that are never going to be repeated, and they are some of the most special we will experience in our life. When Alice Tinker gets married to Hugo, the two of them go on vacation and when they get back, they are anxious to tell the vicar about what took [More]
If there is one thing that most of us truly appreciate, it’s a good joke. At times, it doesn’t even need to be the funniest thing that we have ever heard, it just needs to be told in the right way and it needs to come across at the right time. When it does, it can really perk us up and put a smile on our face. Unfortunately, there are going to be times when we try to tell a joke and it doesn’t necessarily land properly. That is a problem that the vicar often has, because her audience is [More]
Have you ever noticed that, when you have something going on at your home, it is often when guests tend to show up? It seems like it is the most inconvenient thing in the world, and it doesn’t matter how hard we try, it is impossible to avoid. That is especially true when we have a special event taking place and we would just like to be alone. It appears as if the vicar is experiencing a similar problem and it is quite hilarious to watch from the outside. Although she has a man up in her bedroom, one person [More]
How often do you get frustrated over little things in life that just seem to grate on your nerves daily? It seems to happen to me quite frequently. When it happens one time, it may not be a big deal but as it happens over and over again, it can quickly get frustrating. That seems to be the case in this video, and Alice is the target of the vicar’s frustration. She seems to have a habit of picking up the vicar’s phone to answer it for her, but the vicar would like to answer her own phone. She gives [More]
If there is one thing that all of us have in life, it is dreams. That is something that seems to be unique among humans, the ability to dream and to set our sights on something grander. Perhaps you have done so yourself you watched a friend as they reached for the stars, so to speak. In this clip, we get to watch Alice as she reaches for a goal that might seem to be quite unobtainable. She has decided that enough is enough and she wants the opportunity to impress her future father in law. That is why she [More]
We all have that one friend who just seems to go through life with blinders on. Perhaps we might even say that they march to the beat of their own drum. Regardless of what we call it, they are usually our dearest friends because they never mean anything bad, they are just being themselves. On the Vicar of Dibley, we actually have 2 of those people, one is Alice and the other is found in this clip, Hugo. He is playing songs for the Dibley radio show but when it is time for him to give some commentary, he really [More]
Have you ever noticed that things seem to go the worst when we want them to go the best? It doesn’t matter how much we planned in advance, there are going to be unexpected details that will get in the way. This is not only true in life, it is also true on the Vicar of Dibley. When the radio show is coming to town, the Vicar is taking charge and she has everything set up and ready to go. Not only is Alice sitting there waiting to answer the phone, Owen is in the background, ready to play the [More]
