Forced into taking early retirement, Victor Meldrew optimistically tries to adjust to years of leisure with his wife Margaret. If only events - coincidences, misunderstandings, bureaucratic inefficiencies and sheer bad luck - didn't conspire against him.

Alive and Buried
At least Victor will be free to sort out the car, do the shopping, compile The Observer's Book of Crap on Your Front Lawn...

The Big Sleep
Noisy neighbours, an outbreak of Jehovah's Witnesses in the area...Victor needs to do something positive. Like exercise classes for the elderly?

The Valley of Fear
Victor calls a residents' meeting after an encounter with soccer hooligans. He arms himself with a starting pistol and Mrs Warboys follows suit - with a hand grenade.

I'll Retire to Bedlam
Victor's been trapped in his garden shed by 'killer' bees, stuck in the optician's all day with his eyes for the greatest horror: baby-sitting Iris's children.

The Eternal Quadrangle
Margaret's suspicions that Victor is having an affair with the nude model from his art class seem to be confirmed when she finds an "empty packet" in his coat pocket.

The Return of the Speckled Band
Victor's already dreading the holiday flight to Athens, but first he must deal with Mrs Warboys' food poisoning, the electric meter reading debacle...and an escaped snake.
