Overview

The popular BBC sitcom Waiting for God originally ran for five series, between 1990 and 1994. The program takes place in the Bayview Retirement Village, an appalling rest home for the elderly characterized by horrendous food, obnoxious staff members who insist on treating the residents like helpless children, and an institutional crackdown on any attempts to show individuality. Conflicts perpetually arise from the refusal of two ornery residents, Tom (Graham Crowden) and Diana (Stephanie Cole) to accept the indignities handed to them or the conformity that Bayview administrators (especially the manager, Harvey) feebly attempt to enforce. This shared attitude between Diana and Tom naturally spells a tighter bond between them, and episodes depict their hilarious misadventures together. This package from the BBC contains all eight episodes from the fifth and final series, which originally aired during September and October 1994. Individual episodes include "After the Operation," "A Royal Visit," "Harvey the Priest," "A Double Wedding" and more.
