One Foot in the Grave

The Man Who Blew Away - S5-E1

Continuity mistake: If you look at the corner cabinet in the Meldrew's kitchen near to the door that leads into the living room, you will notice that in some shots there is an ornamental chicken and in other shots it changes to a different blue coloured ornament.

Continuity mistake: Just after the scene with Mr Foskett on the roof of the house, Margaret is seen standing in the garden with her hand over her mouth, in the shot immedietly after she is standing with her hands in front of her.

Victor Meldrew: I wonder what the point is of living? It doesn't seem to get you anywhere.



A minute or so after the health and fitness instructer dies, we see her lying flat out on her back. If you look carefully, you can see her chest moving up and down and breathing despite being dead.



The Christmas Special that aired in 1995, was initially intended as the series' finale, and would have seen Victor being killed while saving Margaret who was being attacked by a madman. The 1997 special was then intended to end the series with Margaret dying from a heart attack brought on from the strain of Victor's misadventures, but on both occasions the production crew got cold feet. It wasn't until the final series in 2000 that the team, in David Renwick's words, "plucked up the courage to kill Victor."
