5.0 out of 5 stars An absolute classic, 31 Oct. 2010
This review is from: One Foot in the Grave Complete Series 1 - 6 Plus Christmas Specials Box Set [DVD] [1990] (DVD)
There can be little doubt that 'One Foot In The Grave' is a classic British sit-com. How many of us listen to Victor's moaning and realise that he sounds just like us? Every single episode is featured here including the Christmas specials. There are many laugh out load moments and it is beautifully performed by Richard Wilson and Annette Crosbie. In fact, each and every performer fits their relative roles like a glove.

There are several extras here to make this an even better package including some commentaries and a documentary on the series. You don't need me to tell you just what fantastic value this box set is and even though many of the scenes have been seen loads of times they are still guaranteed to make you chuckle.

This series is right up there with Dad's Army, Porridge, Rising Damp and Steptoe and Son. An absolute must have for your collection.

Please, please HELP ! Are subtitles included on this set ? I cannot seem to find this information anywhere.

Hi. I'm pretty sure that this set has English subtitles for the hard of hearing. Hope this info helps.

Thanks for the quick reply. Not sure it helps though. Amazon has two sets listed, one through the marketplace sellers. Someone answered the subtitle question about the other set (ASIN: B000HXDM1E released Oct./16/2006, and said it WAS subtitled. You were the only one who answered about this set. I was hoping you owned it and then would be sure of the information. The main reason is that I do not want to have to return it as I am in the US. I am also afraid of marketplace buying out of the US.
I guess I'll just have to wait until I can be sure. I watched some episode clips of the show on Youtube and ever since, I cannot get it out of my mind. I'll have it someday...I hope !!
Again, thanks for your speedy reply and your help !

is this the smaller slim line set. with slim line dvd cases for each series? or standard sized dvd cases. thanks

In reply to an earlier post on 22 Aug 2011 07:58:23 BDT
Hi. Yes, this is the slimmer set and therefore much better for storage space.

In reply to an earlier post on 21 Oct 2015 04:53:14 BDT
Yes, it has English subtitles. 😊
