Storyline

A witch has predicted that Victor will soon die, which doesn't inspire confidence when he sets out in a snowstorm to clear out his late cousin Ursula's house. To his surprise Patrick has been locked in Victor's car-boot by Melvin, Patrick's secretary's jealous boyfriend who thinks they're having an affair. Pippa arrives and she and Patrick check into a hotel; unfortunately their room is the 'peep-show room' where voyeurs spy on them. They return to Ursula's, where a spider frightens Pippa, and Victor and Patrick have another run-in with Melvin. Written by don @ minifie-1

The 1995 Christmas special featured the first 'false finish' to One Foot in the Grave, David Renwick honestly not knowing when he would end the show from one episode to the next.

Being snowed in doesn't feel comfortable at the best of times, but imagine spending that time at a creepy old property whose owner has recently passed away, with their pet tarantula roaming the premises.

Patrick and Pippa may have finally been able to move away from Victor Meldrew, but he isn't going to let them escape to freedom quietly.
