BCG Review:

"One Foot in the Grave" is great fun to watch because it reminds us that life isn't that bad after all. All the cast are exceptional, especially Richard Wilson as grumpy Victor Meldrew, the pensioner who sounds off about life. Voted the "10th Best British Sitcom Ever" this show certainly deserves such a recognition.
