First Look At Dawn French In The Vicar Of Dibley In Lockdown Drops
In the image, Geraldine Granger can be seen grinning from her sofa as she prepares to give her first of three sermons to her parish (and the viewing public).
The special will consist of three 10 minute episodes which will air weekly. Meanwhile a 30 minute compilation episode of all three sermons will air later over Christmas.
Geraldine will be helped by Hugo Horton (James Fleet) alongside some of the local primary school children, when delivering her sermons.
BBC explained: "During lockdown, post lockdown and pre-another-lockdown, Geraldine has been writing and delivering monthly sermons to her parishioners via Zoom...when she can make it work.
"The Vicar discusses all the important topics, including how it's never a good idea to let Owen Newitt cut your hair, or make home-made wine.
"The very dearly departed Alice Tinker is also still an important presence in the village, with some residents still looking for lost buttons and the arrival of decrimalisation."

Speaking about the specials, Dawn said: "Back in the dog collar, back in Dibley and back on your telly at Xmas. I couldn't be happier. Bless you."
While Richard Curtis added: "Like every village in the country, there's been a lot happening in Dibley this year - and Dawn has got a lot to say about it."
In October, Dawn hinted a Christmas special was on the cards.
Speaking to, she said: "I don't think I'd do a film, although I'd never rule out anything, but there is a little something coming for Christmas. It's gorgeous, and I can't tell you any more than that, sadly.
"Richard Curtis and Paul Mayhew-Archer [the show's writers] have written a little something that will be just before Christmas, hopefully."
This is just what 2020 needs!
