When Harry Met…

THE Vicar of Dibley ends up hitched to Guy of Gisborne in the final two episodes of a comedy classic.
Dawn French says goodbye to Geraldine Granger when the Vicar meets Harry, a charming village newcomer played by Robin Hood star Richard Armitage.
You may also remember Richard as brooding Manchester mill owner Richard Thornton in BBC1’s 2004 adaptation of North and South.
The village of Turville on the Buckinghamshire / Oxfordshire border doubles for Dibley.
As discussed in a previous blog, Turville has a long track record when it comes to hosting TV and film productions.
Although it’s usually kept out of shot, the local pub is just a few yards away from the cottages used to portray the exterior of Geraldine’s home.

And just across the way is the real life church which millions of viewers know as St Barnabus of Dibley.
You can see Geraldine’s farewell on BBC1 at 9.30pm on Christmas Day, with the concluding episode at the same time on New Year’s Day.
And there’s an added bonus for fans. An hour-long BBC1 documentary – The Story Of Dibley – will be screened at 9pm on Wednesday January 10.
