  • One of the two newer episodes filmed, this episode is a sweet look back at why we love Geraldine and Dibley.

    A ten year anniversary episode shows Geraldine thinking over whether she has made a difference and whether she is needed in Dibley. Her feelings intensify when David says that Geraldine deserves a promotion and has put in a word with old school chum, the Archbishop of Canterbury.

    We catch up with all our old friends and find that Hugo and Alice have ten(!) children. Alice has also, over the years, tried to redecorate the David's house and he gives in on the den- which is given the Alice Tinker-Horton treatment you'd expect!

    Bibles, big reindeer statues, and a painting of Davids are spoken about and given 'round by unexpected folks! (Or not if you know the characters.) (The boys' gift to Geraldine is amazingly thoughtful as well as hilarious!)

    Overall, a sweet look back at a lovely, gentle series.
