All in Good Faith is a British television sitcom that aired from 1985 to 1988. The show stars Richard Briers as Reverend Philip Lambe, a newly appointed vicar in the fictional village of Ockton. Barbara Ferris plays his wife, Emma. The show follows the daily life of Reverend Lambe as he tries to navigate his new role in the village. He quickly finds that being a vicar is not as easy as he thought, as he deals with the various dilemmas and crises that arise in the village. Reverend Lambe's main focus is providing guidance and support to the parishioners while trying to maintain his own principles.

Throughout the show, Reverend Lambe is accompanied by his wife Emma, who offers a more practical and down-to-earth approach to problem-solving. She often takes matters into her own hands and acts as the voice of reason when Reverend Lambe struggles to find a solution. The couple's relationship is at the heart of the show, and their love and dedication to each other are a source of inspiration for their parishioners.

All in Good Faith is a comedy, and the humor often comes from the clash between Reverend Lambe's idealism and the practical challenges he faces. The show also tackles some serious and controversial topics, such as abortion and homosexuality, but always with a light touch and a comedic twist.

The supporting cast is also a highlight of the show, with a range of eccentric and lovable characters populating the village. There is Mrs. Pumphrey, the nosy and gossiping housekeeper, who is always sticking her nose where it doesn't belong, and the formidable Lady Castlecroft, a wealthy and influential member of the community who always gets her way.

All in Good Faith was well received by critics and audiences alike during its original run, and it has since become a cult classic. The show is timeless in its humor and themes, and it still resonates with audiences today. The strong performances from the cast, particularly Briers and Ferris, make the show a joy to watch.

All in Good Faith is a charming and heartwarming sitcom that offers a glimpse into the daily life of a rural vicar. With its lovable characters, witty humor, and touching moments, it is a show that will leave viewers feeling uplifted and entertained.
