Trivia

During his cameo near the end of the episode, cinematographer Geoff Harrison gets to be the only person in the series to utter the f-word on camera, as he can be seen saying "oh, fucking hell!" when Victor walks into the shot, although the dialogue is muted during the scene. See more »

I think she did it
16 July 2008 | by (France) – See all my reviews

This was a truly wonderful exit for Victor Meldrew and in my opinion Margaret DID put something in the orange juice. Why do I feel this is so...? Because all through the series Margaret found Victor's constant 'vigilante acts' in retaliation towards his fellow mans inhumanity a constant distraction. Then, in the final episode, she speaks about how she had finally realised that Victor's quest to 'do something' was his way of coping with life. 'Nobody does anything about anything'...is what she tells the priest. I feel that Margaret decided, in this final episode, that this was something worth 'doing something' about; the way she regards Glynis when she realises her new friend is the reason she is a widow. The way she climbs into her car and takes a deep breath - a tremendous burden has been lifted from her shoulders. She seems relaxed for the first time in the episode. She carried out her promise to herself; otherwise Glynis would have accompanied her out to the car wouldn't she...? This show was always a great highlight in my week and I miss it tremendously. But I do agree, it would have been nice to have seen Mrs Warboys or Mr Swainey in the last show. However Margaret being comforted by sympathetic well wishers would have changed the storyline

  • Margaret would only draw comfort from one thing. I think Margarets


revenge serves that purpose well enough.
