I don’t have much to say about The Vicar of Dibley – A Holy Wholly Happy Ending (Series 5) except:
He falls in love with her at first sight. Which addresses a concern several of us have voiced: there are so many stories of ordinary-looking men with wives who look like supermodels, so where are all the stories of ordinary-looking women with gorgeous men falling for them?
Well, this is one, and the whole story including subplots is really funny and adorable, so I recommend it for all sorts of reasons aside from the fact that it dares to show a non-super-modelly middle-aged woman as worthy of true love and a traditionally hot younger guy as capable of looking right at her and loving what he sees. Without attempts to rationalize or explain it or make excuses. It just is. It’s treated as no more or less remarkable than any meeting of two people who fall in love.
Also, Dawn French jumping into a puddle so deep she completely disappears. Trust me: when you see it, you’ll understand why you needed to.
