The ultimate proof that women have made it to the top of the Church: Dawn French's TV vicar is consecrated as the Bishop of Dibley

From The Daily Mail-

She is surely Britain’s best-known clergywoman and now – if she has her way – she is set to become one of the first female bishops in the Church of England. Even if she is fictional.

Geraldine Granger, better known as the Vicar of Dibley, is to return to TV screens for a one-off episode of the hit comedy inspired by the Church’s historic decision to allow women bishops.
Dawn French has dusted down her dog collar and has spent the past few days filming a ‘Bishop of Dibley’ BBC special in Central London locations, including the Inner Temple.

In the show, to be broadcast as part of Comic Relief’s Red Nose Day on March 13, Granger faces competition for the bishop’s job – with some of Britain’s biggest female comedy stars cast as her rivals.
