Description

Victor Meldrew (Richard Wilson) and his long-suffering wife Margaret (Annette Crosbie) were a newly retired couple for whom the vagaries of modern life, and sheer bad luck, meant that they are frequently left bewildered and bemused, with Victor's volcanic temper exploding in hilarious outbursts while his wife tried to soothe her husband. The series, which began in 1990, captured the mood of a nation doing battle with confusing changes and increasingly reluctant to give voice to its frustrations. Victor Meldrew became a hero for speaking out. In some 44 episodes across the rest of the decade, before he was eventually killed off, we cheered him on. In this book, Richard Webber goes behind the scenes, talking to creator David Renwick and to the stars of the series. Here, he provides a comprehensive account of the programmes, with an episode by episode guide, highlights of the most famous and hilarious moments, as well as some wonderful photographs from the making of the series, many never seen before.show more
