One Foot In The Grave

One foot in the grave is a classic british sitcom starring Richard Wilson & Annette Crosbie.

Victor Meldrew (Richard Wilson) is a grumpy accident prone pensioner, who lives with his long-suffering wife Margaret (Annette Crosbie) in a London suburbian home.

Patrick Trench (Angus Deayton) & wife Pippa (Janine Duvitski) live next door & are often caught up or on the recieving end of Victor's constant mishaps & misfortunes, sometimes witnessing Victor in some bizarre & compromising positions at times.

Patrick thinks Victor is nothing but a crazy grumpy old man who sometimes borders on malicious. This often makes Patrick want to get even & act in a similar way.

However, Pippa & Margaret become good friends always trying to get their husbands to see sense & make the peace.

Jean Warboys (Doreen Mantle) is another good friend of Margarets (much to Victors annoyance) Jean & Victor never seem to see eye to eye & Jean always seems to bear the brupt of Victors requent temper due to misunderstandings.

Victor & margarets other neighbour is happy-go-lucky charity worker Nick Swainey. (Owen Brenman) Nick is always very optimistic & most of the time remains calm & totally oblivious to Victors constant abuse, which adds to Victors frustration.
