The village of Dibley acquires a new vicar, but the Reverend Geraldine is a bit of a surprise, and a not entirely welcome one to some people.
A BBC TV program decides to film a segment in Dibley, leading to all sorts of romantic misunderstandings, well, auditions for the church choir.
Geraldine takes over the Autumn Fair and promises a celebrity, say Elton John, to open it but finds it a bit difficult to deliver.
One of the church's stained glass windows is broken during a storm (not The Great Storm, mind you), which sends the Reverend on a fund-raising mission among the well to do, especially David's friends.
Geraldine clashes with David in the Dibley district councilor elections over the issue of local bus service, and finds herself an opposing candidate.
