BBC sketch show that while continuing to show the misadventures of a series of popular characters now also introduces a slew of new oddballs and misfits for us to enjoy including Tory Boy and The Lovely Wobbly Randy Old Ladies.
In this classic bitter-sweet sitcom from award winning writer David Renwick, Richard Wilson plays the short tempered Victor Meldrew, a man who doesn't suffer fools gladly and to his misery frequently encounters them as well as a bad case of misfortune. His long suffering wife Margrat played by Annette Crosbie struggles to cope with her husbands rants against the world and the bad luck that befalls them. The hilarity that ensures his also underpinned by a poignant and often darker edge little seen in most sitcoms. Written by
One of the greatest British sitcoms ever. One Foot in the Grave was thoroughly entertaining for its decade run from 1990-2000. Who could ever forget Victor Meldrew and his constant whinging and run of bad luck. I loved this show and wished it was still going. Richard Wilson is a fantastic actor and the shows guests like Mrs Warboys were hilarious also. Watch the telemovie they made in 1993 its a laugh a second. Congratulations to everyone involved in this one. Pure gold in every sense of the word, many sitcoms today you laugh at how unfunny it is, not One Foot in the Grave, a jewel in BBC's television schedule. Gone but in my mind never ever forgotten.
