Tread Perilously — The Vicar of Dibley: Songs of Praise

Tread Perilously’s British Telly Month concludes the only way it can — with an episode of The Vicar of Dibley called “Songs of Praise.”

When a BBC show decides to spotlight the Dibley church, Geraldine realizes she has to hastily assemble a choir. She also starts to imagine chatting up a handsome BBC producer. Meanwhile, David thinks he’s chatting up the attractive cameraperson the Beeb sent up to scout the church. And when the programme’s producer (Peter Capaldi!) arrives in town, Geraldine gets the impression he might be interested in her. Will her amorous aspirations deep-six the choir recording? Or is there more to the Londonite sophisticate than anyone realizes?

Erik discusses some of the other shows on tap for a potential second British Telly month. Justin doubts Rumpole of the Bailey is a real thing. He also tries to figure out why Peter Capaldi is downplaying his Scottish accent in this episode. Erik makes the case for Courtney Thorne-Smith as a Jenna Fischer All-Star. The pair eventually get to the Dibley character who likes to talk about putting his arm up a sheep. The 90s sitcom quality makes The Vicar of Dibley a hard sell and Henry VIII gets the credit for the first “vicar” joke.
