Some people must continuously battle against a long series of problems, some of which they inadvertently create for themselves. But it’s the efforts they take, no matter how hilarious they may ultimately prove to be, to overcome those misfortunes and misunderstandings that prove their true character. That’s certainly the case for actor Victor Meldrew’s protagonist of Richard Wilson in the classic British sitcom, ‘One Foot in the Grave.’
