Although "I don't believe it" is the catchphrase of the show, the first time Victor said it was in the last few minutes of "The Return of the Speckled Band" - the final episode of the first series. See more »
Applauds to David Renwick for this classic sitcom.
Forced to retire early from his job as a security guard, Victor Meldrew (Richard Wilson) struggles to cope with the problems that retired life throws his way alongside his long suffering wife, Margaret (played by Annette Crosbie). It is no wonder he is grumpy, if it can go wrong it will.
Annette Crosbie gives a brilliant performance and it is a delight to watch her express the wonderful array of emotions that being married to Victor requires.
Richard Wilson endeared himself to a nation with this role that catapulted him into the minds of every viewer.
One Foot in the Grave is a national treasure that is amongst the very best of British Comedy.
