Things aren't too good at Nelson Mandela house. Raquel's parents are due to visit for dinner and will be meeting Del for the first time, causing her to panic. Dinner is ultimately ruined after Albert...
Traders and brothers, Rodney and Derek "Del Boy" Trotter, work from the streets of London buying what they can from the auctions and flogging it down at the market, always saying "This time next year, we'll be millionaires". Their Granddad and, later in the series, Uncle Albert also live in their council flat as the wise old man saying their next scheme won't work and offering in their jokes.
Over a dozen Reliant Regals (the three-wheeled vans) were used during the series. See more »
Uncle Albert keeps talking about his experiences during World War II, yet the Trotters know from the revelations at his trial that he was never stationed outside the UK. See more »
[talking about one of Del's mates]
That bloke's come on a bundle in the last few years. That man is at the front of new technological frontiers. He's got a Queen's Award for industry plaque and all.
I know. I was there when you sold it to him.

On the video & DVD release of the 1991 Xmas special "Miami Twice", the two episodes have been combined into one, and the second episode has laughter track added (the broadcast episode 2 has no laugher track). This combined version has never been seen on TV. See more »
Classic comedy is a term which is often overused but it fits Only Fools & Horses perfectly. In particular series 1-4 are absolutely brilliant. John Sullivan made you fall in love with the characters so that you could laugh and share in their experiences down through the years as if you actually knew them. The creation of Del Boy as a character was inspired and played faultlessly by David Jason. I felt the later episodes and specials were vastly inferior to the earlier ones but were still well worth a watch.
My favourite programme ever ..............
