From The British Comedy guide:
Dawn French has hinted that The Vicar Of Dibley, one of the BBC’s biggest sitcom hits, could return to screens.
The sitcom was believed to have finished for good in 2007 when its creator Richard Curtis said he wasn’t going to write any more episodes. However, during an interview this morning, Dawn French revealed that Curtis may have secret plans for a revival that would see her return as Geraldine Granger.
Speaking on ITV’s Daybreak she said: “We had 13 happy years. When we got to the end I said to Richard, ‘You have to say it’s finished because people keep asking about it’. So he said, ‘OK, it’s finished’. We had the wrap party, we had a few tears and on the way out, the producer said to me, ‘He’s asked us to store the set’.”
French added: “I think he’s probably waiting for women to be officially made bishops.”
The Church of England is currently considering allowing women to become bishops, with the Archbishop of Canterbury Rowan Williams vocally supporting the idea. The issue will be voted on by the General Synod next month.
