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.
The final three episodes: If They Could See Us Now/Strangers On The Shore/Sleepless In Peckham, were filmed simultaneously between August-December 2001 and broadcast on Christmas Day 2001/2002/2003. This was done to keep the production budget down and to avoid the potential difficulty of re-assembling the same cast and crew each year when other commitments may have prevented it. See more »
In the first episode Del says he's 12 years Rodney's senior. Yet in series 4 (1985), it's 21 years as Rodney's 24 and says "it's Del's 46th birthday in a few weeks," suggesting Del was born in 1939. In the final episode, Sid's got a picture of Del taken in 1960 when he was 15, now he's born 1944-45. See more »

When originally shown in the UK. The whole of the first series had the saxophone theme music. Not just the first episode as shown above. See more »
This show is by far the greatest show in history with out any doubt at all. When it began in 1981 before i was born it was a instant hit but i got to see the videos from thr first couple of years which are good but the best episdoes are from 1985 onwards with the introduction of the bearded uncle albert and his famous quote 'DURING THE WAR'. But the best thing about this show is trigger who is the best tv character of all time even funny than chandler bing from american sitcom friends, he is so stupid it is so funny. In one episode he is talking about his brush which he has used for twenty years and how it is the same brush and then he says that he has changed the head 10 times and 7 new handles CLASSIC.I just hope they still give us the adventures of rodney and del for some time to come.
