Buy the Very Best of One Foot in the Grave on DVD; you’d expect the ultimate keepsake of a classic British sitcom that was broadcast during a period of 10 years… but no. This DVD contains a measly 6 episodes. (6 episodes from a 10 year series, come on?!?) Although they are fantastic in their own right, I do remember a lot funnier episodes – making me suspect that the selection on here was purely random. I never liked the very last episode where Victor is killed off (apart from the closing and heart-warming “End of the Line” sequence.) Much preferred the thought of him still grumbling to this day… no need to kill him off. So the inclusion of it on here is wasted on me. All in all I am really disappointed by this DVD. There’s a lot more Margaret and Victor that needs to be released on DVD. I would save your money until the BBC decides to release a more fitting tribute to such a gem of comedy series.

Whilst this series may not have quite the universal appeal as more 'magnolia' offerings like the omnipresent Only Fools and Horses, it is worthy of more effort than this half hearted compilation. For me, One Foot In The Grave has probably the greatest emotional range of any program in recent times and this can only really be experienced in full by watching the episodes in the correct sequence. David Renwicks characters have great depth, and over time you really do discover more and more about Victor and Margaret and why they are who they are. The peerless performances by Richard Wilson and Annette Crosbie can make you cry with laughter whilst also lending real weight to the darker moments of the program. I believe releases of entire series to DVD is imminent if the BBC website is to be believed. Lets hope the BBC has done the program the justice is truly deserves.

I would like to say I really enjoyed this compilation of One Foot in the Grave episodes. It is definately worth the watch, especially if it has you laughing in tears!! The only disapointment was the very last episode on the DVD, I did not like how it all ended and it was not one bit funny! At least it is the only episode I have seen that I don't like, overall I still recommend it to the fans.

This DVD arrived in fair condition obviously well watched, the TV series was about a grumpy retired middle class man and his wife his favourite saying was you'll never believe it and this is how the series was recognised, a jolly good laugh the star Richard Wilson whent on to star in another popular series only when I laugh.
