It's been five years since we last saw the Trotters. When we last saw them, they were millionaires following the sale of a priceless antique watch.
This time, we see Del and Rodney explaining their state of affairs to an unknown man - it turns out that they had invested all their money and had fallen victim to a stock market crash! We later discover that the unknown man is a barrister in a court where they are being declared bankrupt.
Where are they living now? Why Nelson Mandela House of course because their large houses had to be sold to pay debts
We see Del going on a gameshow called 'Goldrush' where he answers a question worth £100,000, with Rodney's help, and gets it wrong! - later the producer telephones to tell Del that the answer he gave was in fact correct and that he can re-appear on the show with £50,000 in his 'bank'. Thinking it was one of Mickey Pearce's pranks though, Del tells them to give it all to charity.
Also in this episode, we learned sadly that Uncle Albert had died and that Mike, landlord of The Nag's Head, is in jail for deforging the brewery!moreless
