The Best of One Foot in the Grave series 5 and 6 12

£3.99

Product description

Four episodes from the popular BBC sitcom based around the professionally grumpy Victor Meldrew (Richard Wilson) and his long-suffering wife Margaret (Annette Crosbie).

The Man who Blew Away
The Meldrews get a surprise visit from Mr. Foskett (Brian Murphy), whom they know only because they stayed in the same guesthouse 17 years ago. Meanwhile, someone has been tampering with Victor's Christmas crackers, and the Meldrews are distraught when their unreliable stolen car is returned just before the insurance policy is due to pay for a new one.
This was first broadcast on Christmas Day 1994

The Affair of the Hollow Lady
Mrs. Warboys has a wax model of herself made as the prize from a competition. Meanwhile, local greengrocer Millicent (Barbara Windsor) takes a fancy to Victor and attempts to lure him to her house when he misses a football match.

The Executioner's Song
Victor has a new job as a window-cleaner. Meanwhile, Patrick's plans for a quiet birthday are ruined after an unfortunate misunderstanding involving a modern art painting; and Pippa finds herself in an adulterous affair.
Writer David Renwick makes a cameo appearance on Victor's television, alongside presenter Lorraine Kelly, as a gentleman being interviewed for a feature on Irritable Bowel Syndrome.

Things Aren't Simple Any More
After a disappointing reunion dinner, Victor is killed by a hit-and-run driver. Facing up to life without him, Margaret receives another shock when she discovers that Victor's killer is her new best friend Glynis (Hannah Gordon). How she handles this is left ambiguous.

Also starring Doreen Mantle as Jean Warboys, Owen Brenman as Nick Swainey, Angus Deayton as Patrick Trench, and Janine Duvitski as Pippa Trench.
