Your wife! Your wife is *dead*!
You know what, Inspector, for the first time since I met you, you're in danger of actually being right about something!

But I didn't. Watching it again 23 years after release ( omg where did that time go ! ) - I loved the book and the film is good at matching the general rule of not being as good as the book. But this time I've watched it with the book as a distant memory and I have to say I enjoyed the film . OK things look a bit dated and the 80s fashion looks laughable but that just adds to the humour . My only disappointment and wish is that they made the remaining WILT books into films too . The casting of Smith & Jones into the lead male roles is genius and Alison Steadman plays the overbearing wife to a 't' . Watch it with LOW expectations and you'll enjoy it :) -Pad.A
