Episode Guide

  • One Foot in the Algarve
    Special feature length episode.

    Victor, Margaret and Jean take a holiday in Portugal to leave the chaos of home life behind for a while. Apparently that's too much to hope for, because Victor's first act in Portugal is to accidentally pimp Mrs Warboys out to one of the locals. That results in the Meldrews being arrested and locked up in jail to rot...or so they think. Later, Mrs. Warboys meets up with her Portuguese pen pal, a lonely man whose wife died falling off a cliff. He's quite obsessed with Mrs Warboys, and Victor begins to suspect that there's more to the story of his wife's death than he's telling. Meanwhile, the random acts of insanity continue as Victor's new aftershave starts attracting donkeys, Victor almost has a fling with a woman he saved from choking, and a paparazzo follows the Meldrews to Portugal believing a roll of film containing some scandalous photos (worth big money) has found its way into Margaret's purse.moreless
