Not long after I fell in love with Richard in 2006 I found out, to my absolute delight, that he would be starring as the love-interest in one of my favourite comedy shows called The Vicar of Dibley that Christmas! Whooppee! It was a two part Vicar of Dibley grand finale and soon after the conclusion aired in January 2007, fan videos started appearing on YouTube. Even though I can’t seem to find the oldest videos online anywhere, I do have some faves that were uploaded a little while later and that are still there…
Crazy Chick (2008) by Jiab/DreamyViperstill (the lyrics in this video really fit the images so well!)
Can’t Take My Eyes Off Of You (2008) by DelicateBlossom
Jungle Drum (2009) by TeaRoseProductions
Trouble is a Friend (2010) by Bccmee (with a funny Guy of Gisborne reference in there).
Not that many Vicar of Dibley videos were made, I guess not everyone loved the show as much as I do. OK, so the lovestory moved a little fast and it’s all about Geraldine and not so much about Harry, but really, I don’t care. I loved Geraldine before Harry and with Harry, well, even better! It’s so very funny and warm and it’s my go-to Richard Armitage project when I need a feelgood pick-me-up (that and the last episode of North and South). I know Dibley is over forever but I so wouldn’t mind Geraldine and Harry and the other villagers returning for a bit… I’d love to see where they’d be at today, 10 years later.
