The Vicar of Dibley, conceived by the writer Richard Curtis, began in 1994, the year in which the first female Church of England priests were ordained. The TV sitcom starred Dawn French as Geraldine Granger, the incoming vicar facing a mixture of bewilderment and prejudice in the sleepy fictional Oxfordshire village of the programme’s title, but Emma Chambers, who has died unexpectedly aged 53, proved to be a scene-stealer as Alice Tinker, the St Barnabas church verger scripted as dim but lovable.

    I didn’t really watch her most famous role, but she had that very ‘English’ silliness, which is not always easy to get across. A sad loss.
    Best wishes, Pete. x

    Oh, how sad. I used to get that show, and it always made me smile. Hugs to you Sarah.

      Yes, it was a ‘smile’ show. The joke at the end of every episode which the character always failed to understand used to make laugh out loud, though! Hugs.

    While known primarily in the US for “Notting Hill”, Chambers was a great character Actress and she will be missed…
