  • NOTES (1)

    • This special marked the end of an era for the series, both in front of and behind the cameras. Ray Butt, who had been the series' producer since it started in 1981, decided to leave the BBC shortly after filming was complete. The day before he left, Butt told John Sullivan that he should seriously consider letting Only Fools and Horses end with "The Frog's Legacy"; Butt felt that the series had run its course, and pointed to the disastrous reception of the previous year's Christmas special, "A Royal Flush", as proof of his point. Sullivan gave thought to Butt's words, but after this special received a much more positive reception than the previous one had done, he decided to continue the series. However, Sullivan shared Butt's concerns that the series' format was starting to become stale, and so starting with the next Christmas special, "Dates", the series would maintain a balance between Del's get-rich-quick schemes and the personal lives of the Trotter Family.
