Wonderful Lady Vicar
Have we really seen the last of Dibley?|
Dawn French has apparently hinted that hit series The Vicar Of Dibley may make an exciting comeback. The show bowed out in a Comic Relief special in March, after being a TV favourite for 12 years and writer Richard Curtis said there would be no new episodes.
However, the 50-year-old comedienne - who plays vicar Geraldine Granger - said that Curtis has refused to let anyone destroy the set, reports The Sun.* Dawn said: "He had said that it was definitely, definitely, definitely the end. Then when I heard he asked for the sets to be stored, I thought. 'He just can't let go of it.'"
Producer Jon Plowman confirmed that Curtis was shocked when a crew member asked after the final episode: "We're going to burn the set, is that OK?" He said the writer declared: "Not yet." Plowman added: "Maybe there'll come a moment when the nation needs a bit of a cuddle. We're not saying never."
Speaking on UKTV, Curtis admitted: "I keep saying that if Charles becomes King and they want to let us see how Dibley is going to celebrate that occasion, I suppose that, you know, you might come out of retirement."
What do you think? Will Dibley return?
(*Actually, the quote was from the recent show concerning the vote for the favourite Dibley moment but that's The Sun for you.)
