One Foot in the Grave: Complete Series
(Full Frame, Slipsleeve Packaging, 12PC)
One Foot in the Grave explores the world of sixty-year-old Victor Meldrew, a black-humored anti-hero - a moody, temperamental curmudgeon who rails against the passage of time. A difficult character even on his best behavior, he sorely tries the patience of his long-suffering wife, Margaret, and their friends. When Victor is forced into early retirement - a fate he regards as little better than a death sentence - the abrupt transition from working man to senior citizen leaves him floundering for a purpose in life. To make matters worse, Margaret continues working, leaving him home all day to fuss and fume over every small incident - each of which now mushrooms into an epic blow to Victor's self-esteem!
