Victor Meldrew and The Trial

For anyone who has never seen this solo tour de force by Richard Wilson as Victor Meldrew, you are in for a treat, as he tackles a very wide range of topics in less than half an hour (viewing time) while he waits at home alone, on call for possible jury service.

It's a truly brilliant example of David Renwick's sharply-observed and wonderfully dense-packed (but easily digestible) writing style, and a masterful performance by Richard W, with no other actors appearing at all. It's easily my favourite episode, though there are a number of others I also like a lot...
