Storyline

The Meldrews have been burgled and the television set stolen. Victor decides to go to the pub and meets a man he used to know,Billy,who mistakes him for somebody else and mocks 'that old misery Meldrew'. To keep up the pretence Victor lets Billy give him a lift to the house belonging to the man Billy thinks he is,skulks a bit and walks home in the rain. Having lost his voice he is mistaken for an obscene caller when he rings the phone company,as well as being mistaken for a prowler when he was hiding in the garden of the house Billy took him to.

Monday Mornings are never fine though, are they?
9 October 2015 | by (Swansea, United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

One foot in the Grave was really at a massive purple patch during Series 3, and the opener was excellent. Monday morning will be fine.

Victor's house has been burgled, and his neighbours assisted the robbers, offering them tea and biscuits. The theft of the TV leads Victor and Margaret to start going out more, but an encounter with Billy and Meg down the local, coupled with a few white lies sets of a chain of unfortunate events.

Victor's levels of annoyance and irritation have gone up another notch, and now Margaret's have as well, she's become just as irascible as Victor. The scene of them both sat at chairs staring at where the TV should be is very memorable. Margaret's reaction to Victor's fidgety behaviour is really funny, as is the Bird's nest.

Brilliantly funny 9/10
