Hello? Margaret, this is your mum speaking. I'm 'prised I'm not here now, but that's because I'm somewhere else. I say, I'm somewhere else! But I bet you'll both be up here soon, won't you? The pair of you. So, I'll see you then. Hello?
Hello, mum. It's Wednesday at six o'clock. I'm just ringing to say that all being well we'll be up there Sunday afternoon about three, but I'll speak to you soon. Bye-bye.

This was a great start to the brilliant fourth series of 'One Foot in the Grave'
Victor is having some work done in the garden. Kazanzi is the man doing it who is popular with the ladies. He spends more time chatting up the ladies than doing the digging. Victor can't believe it when he finds himself digging for him. Patrick's very small dog has gone missing. When Victor's phone rings, Victor picks it up thinking it to be the phone. Victor is getting fed up with Kazanzi, he is even more annoyed when he has had a bath in Victor's bathroom and is sat down having a big breakfast cooked by Margaret. The last straw is when Victor gets home and finds Kazanzi on the sofa with a lady (it is actually his daughter). This is the last straw, so Victor loses it. As revenge Kazanzi buries Victor in the garden. Then news comes through that Margaret's mother has died.
A great episode- regarded as one of the best 'One Foot in the Grave' episodes. The scene where Victor mistakes the dog for the telephone is one of the most remembered scenes in 'One Foot in the Grave' Playing Kazanzi was Daniel Peacock. His Dad is Trevor Peacock who played Jim Trott in 'The Vicar of Dibley' He reminds me of Nicky Henson, who played Johnson in the classic 'Fawlty Towers' episode 'The Psychiatrist' He looks like him- hairy chest very visible and the character was very similar, popular with the ladies, cheeky cockney attitude and easily makes ladies laugh. Victor was very much like Basil Fawlty, sees him a show-off, a waste of time and strongly disapproves of his casual attitude.
Best Bit: KAZANZI: I used to have one of them electronic woodchoppers, but the noise kept giving me orgasms.
Second Best Bit: Victor mistaking the dog for the phone.
