Thank you both for saving me from explaining about my forum name Meldrew, and after what I've said on here I couldn't use Dr Pulley could I!

OMG, I love it! Had never heard of that series, don't think it was shown on U.S. tv. Now I think I understand Meldrew better. Laughing

Oh Lord Ted... you been in the thin air too long. I think the tv series was based on the life of our Meldrew. Laughing

I have to admit that I had never heard of the Meldrew character before either. This was a revelation to me ... Now I am curious... which came first? Question

We in UK watched all "One Foot In The Grave" series. It was very popular with( let's say older people) who had all the frustrations of Victor Meldrew.That is why we knew what to expect from someone using that name on a website, and he hasn't let us down yet! Wink
