Episode Summary

EDIT
If They Could See Us Now...
AIRED:
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

    FILTER BY TYPE

    • TRIVIA (5)

      • When Rodney and Cassandra come back from the restaurant to have sex in their bedroom (which used to belong to Grandad, then Albert), Del talks about Grandad having his first fit on that bed, but that is unlikely because the bed in this episode is a double, and the one that Grandad slept on in "Homesick" was a single.

      • It was never revealed whether the Trotters ever found out that Mickey Pearce wasn't actually calling when they said that Rodney's answer was correct.

      • In the flashback about how the Trotters lost their millions, Rodney is seen flying abroad, yet in "Who Wants To Be A Millionaire", Rodney was not allowed an immigration visa because he smoked some illegal drugs.

      • During their vacation, when Rodney is talking to Del about Uncle Albert, he says that Albert could not go on holiday with them because he didn't have a passport. However, in "To Hull And Back", Del asked Albert if he had brought all the passports when he got to Hull, and Albert says they are in his bag. Albert would obviously have had a passport when he went to Amsterdam with his nephews.

      • When we see Rodney and Cass on the plane, the seat behind Rod is empty. But after Damien fires the elastic band at Rodneys ear, we see Damien sitting in the seat.
