THIS REVIEW CONTAINS SPOILERS
Show review anywayHide
we loved watching One Foot In The Grave with Victor and Margaret. The episodes are:
In Luton Airport, No One Can Hear You Scream - The Meldrews return from their holiday to find that their baggage has been sent to the other side of the world. Their house has also been demolished following a terrible fire but somebody still manages to pour HP Spicy Sauce through his letterbox. Six months later they move into a new house and attempt to hold a housewarming party.
We Have Put Her Living in the Tomb - While beginning to organize their new house, the Meldrews are entrusted to look after a tortoise for Margaret's goddaughter Jennifer. However, disaster awaits when Victor decides to burn some garden rubbish. Meanwhile, someone has been using TCP in the Meldrews' new house, requiring its wallpaper to be stripped and general havoc to be wrought.
Dramatic Fever - Victor writes a script for a new situation comedy. Unfortunately nobody else finds it very funny. Margaret also catches dramatic fever and joins an amateur dramatic society. Victor feuds with a litterbug, and the news that Margaret is in Kettering leads to the Meldrews being invited to a Bergerac party given by local thespian Desiree Gibson.
Who Will Buy? - Victor and Margaret meet their new neighbours Patrick and Pippa for the first time. Victor has problems with a toy dinosaur salesman and Margaret befriends a lonely elderly blind man, Albert (played by Jimmy Jewel). A charity concert gives Victor the chance to air his ventriloquist skills.
Love and Death - The Meldrews are on holiday, staying with old friends Vince (played by Stephen Lewis) and April (played by Georgina Hale) in their boarding house on the south coast. However, during the weekend a set of unfortunate coincidences leave the couple thinking the other is being unfaithful, and Victor ends up with a glass of beer super-glued to his head.
Timeless Time - Victor is unable to sleep, which also dooms Margaret to wakefulness. Things get so desperate that Victor contemplates opening Ronnie and Mildred's Christmas present from last year. This episode,set entirely in the Meldrews' bedroom, implies that Victor and Margaret had a son called Stuart who died as a child.
Well worth watching !
