GRUMPY OLD MAN.
Vict upo Victor Meldrew could be relied upon to find something to moan about in any given situation.
In fairness, the retired security guard did seem to suffer more misfortune than most. In one episode, a man delivering a yucca plant arrives at the house so Victor asks him to put it in the downstairs toilet.
'You know what he's done,' says Victor apoplectic, 'he's only planted it in the bowl.' The show, starring Richard Wilson and Annette Crosbie, ran between 1990 and 1995, with five Christmas specials and a final series in 2000.
