Six episodes from the popular BBC sitcom based around the professionally grumpy Victor Meldrew (Richard Wilson). In 'The Return of the Speckled Band', the Meldrew family holiday is fast approaching and something rather slippery is invading their residence. In 'Dreamland', Victor is determined to look good when the woman from the coffee advert comes to open the village fete. In 'The Broken Reflection', Victor's brother comes to stay and brings the skull of Great Grampie Meldrew. 'Warm Champagne' sees Victor get annoyed when a street lamp comes falling through his window. 'The Trial' has old misery guts called up for jury service. And finally, in 'Things Aren't Simple Anymore', the last episode ever filmed, Victor is the only person who turns up at a work reunion.
