In a solo episode featuring only Richard Wilson,Victor is home alone waiting on a phone call regarding his jury service. For this reason he does not take kindly when Mrs Warboys rings to prattle on about her holiday. He becomes alarmed by a crack in the wall which he fears may be subsidence,diagnoses his aches and pains and rails at God for letting it rain when he wanted to do the garden. At least he is able to have a nice unhealthy meal. Written by
