Show review anywayHide
we loved watching One Foot In The Grave with Victor and Margaret.
The episodes are:
Monday Morning Will Be Fine - Victor and Margaret return from a shopping trip to discover that the house has been burgled--and the neighbours helped out. Victor decides not to replace the television to give them more opportunity to get out of the house. However, an evening trip to the pub results in a disconcerting experience with an old friend.
Dreamland - In a coffee shop, Mrs. Warboys tells the story of how Margaret went missing following a series of haunting dreams in which she murders someone who looks exactly like Victor. Also, Mr. Swainey evades Victor's attempts to nail the fence closed and invites the Meldrews round to see his pigeons.
The Broken Reflection - Patrick and Pippa fear the worst when they ask Victor and Margaret to look after their house whilst they are on holiday. Victor's nerves are also on edge when his absent-minded brother Alfred visits.
The Beast in the Cage - A day out turns into a nightmare for the Meldrews and Mrs. Warboys when the Bank Holiday traffic comes to a standstill on the motorway and they are trapped in their car staring at a horse's backside for four hours.
Beware the Trickster on the Roof - Mr. Swainey returns from holiday with an evil present in the form of a gift paperweight. Victor is astonished when he receives a phone call from the thieves who burgled his house asking for a manual to help program his video recorder. Patrick and Pippa attempt to sell their house, but prospective buyers are put off when they encounter Victor.
The Worst Horror of All - Victor is delighted when he finally gets a decent job as the doorman at an expensive hotel. However, after being insulted by a guest in an obvious toupee he decides that retirement is the best option after all. Meanwhile, Mrs. Warboys organises a trip to the BBC, and the Meldrews try to fend off a visit from Ronnie and Mildred.
Well worth watching !
