Saw this in my local poundland today, thought it was well worth the money.

Victor Meldrew (Richard Wilson) and his long-suffering wife Margaret (Annette Crosbie) were a newly retired couple for whom the vagaries of modern life, and sheer bad luck, mean that they are frequently left bewildered and bemused, with Victor's volcanic temper exploding in hilarious outbursts while his wife tries to soothe her husband. The series, which began in 1990, captured the mood of a nation doing battle with confusing changes and increasingly reluctant to give voice to its frustrations. Victor Meldrew became a hero for speaking out. In some 44 episodes across the rest of the decade, before he was eventually killed off in a car accident, we cheered him on. In this book, Richard Webber goes behind the scenes, talking to David Renwick about his inspirations for the characters and the wonderful plots, and discussing their roles with the stars of the series. He provides a comprehensive account of the programmes, with an episode by episode guide, highlights of the most famous and hilarious moments, as well as some wonderful photographs from the making of the series, many never seen before. With some episodes attracting more than 20 million viewers, there is a huge fanbase for this book.

RIP VictorStill can't believe it!Victor Meldrew has Died

Bought this for £10 about 6 months ago. Fabulous book full of colour photos and a real look insight into the show.

No brainer for £1.00.

Great deal if you can get one in your local Poundland.

Brilliant show, shame Victor Meldrew (and the show) was killed off as I haven't seen Richard Wilson doing much else since, apart from panel shows and whinging about politics and being asked to say his character's catch phrase.

I love the Father Ted episode where they see Richard Wilson and think it would be original to say his catchphrase as surely no-one has ever thought to do that, much like this thread

Yes, Ian Colquhoun "Richard" Wilson plays the character of 'Gaius' (the physician to King Uther) in BBC TV's "Merlin".

Merlin is Gaius' apprentice.
