One Foot in the Grave is a BBC television situation comedy series written by David Renwick . The show ran for six series, with several specials over a ten year period, from 1990 to 2000. The series features the exploits of Victor Meldrew, played by Richard Wilson , and his long-suffering wife, Margaret, played by Annette Crosbie , in their battle against the trials of modern life. After being forced to take involuntary early retirement, the series followed the protagonist's various efforts to keep himself busy, whilst encountering various misfortunes and misunderstandings. The series was set in a typical suburban household in a suburb of London based on Luton (although was largely filmed on location in Dorset). However, despite its traditional production, the series subverts its domestic sitcom setting with elements of black humour and surrealism.
The series was occasionally the subject of controversy for some of its darker story elements. However, it was the recipient of a number of awards, including the 1992 BAFTA for Best Comedy. In 2004, the series came tenth in a 2004 BBC poll to find " Britain's Best Sitcom ". The programme also came 80th in the British Film Institute 's 100 Greatest British Television Programmes .
The series, originally shown on BBC1 , is now available on DVD and is regularly repeated in the United Kingdom. Four episodes were remade for BBC Radio 2 and the series also inspired a novel.

An important Note To USA & Canadian Buyers
( American and Canadian buyers should note that although the discs are Multi-Region formatted and will work in Region 1 format they are actually encoded for PAL transmission, therefore it is the buyerâ€™s/ potential buyerâ€™s responsibility to check their equipment is compatible before purchasing - as refunds will not be given due to Copy & Watch being possible.
With this in mind most modern/ quality NTSC players in America and Canada will still play PAL discs all the same - but this is a decision the overseas buyer will have to make.
Also, should you really wish to purchase but think that your standard DVD player wonâ€™t be compatible then the DVDâ€™s will still work in any PC DVD-ROM drives worldwide. )
