Only Fools And Horses, Christmas Crackers, 1981

The first Trotter Christmas Special now heading for 40 years old, with the ongoing repeats on GOLD it seems like yesterday.


It’s Christmas in the Trotter household and as is the tradition Del and Rodney are waiting for Grandad’s poisoned Christmas dinner to be served.  However just for once it’s not that bad.

After dinner there’s the exchanging of gifts.  Highlight of the day Grandad is going to an OAP party, leaving Del and Rodney to hit the Monte Carlo Club.

Whilst at the club Rodney is unable to attract any women, and when he does finally make some progress, he is beaten by two other men, much to his and Del’s horror.
