About this programme

The Meldrews embark on a two-week holiday in Portugal in David Renwick's feature-length special from 1993. However, there are one or two disasters Victor does not quite believe, such as rising damp, a plague of mice and a troublesome boxer - not forgetting the dreaded donkeys. Guest starring Joan Sims and Peter Cook.
