Rodney meets Vicky, a seemingly impoverished artist who it transpires is the daughter of the Duke of Maylebury. Having obtained a pair of tickets to the sold-out production of Carmen, Rodders seems to have deeply impressed Vicky. She is less taken by the presence of Del and his peroxide blonde dolly bird. Especially when they open the crisps. Vicky then invites Rodney to a party at the Duke's country home, and it seems romance may be on the cards. Then Del Boy turns up, hits the vino-plonko and ruins everything for his little brother. Written by
Del's out-of-character cruelty throughout A Royal Flush and, in particular the dinner table scene, could be accountable to the fact that only a few months before, Rodney scuppered Del's opportunity to go to Australia to be a partner in Jumbo Mills company. He could therefore have been harbouring a lot of bitterness toward Rodney, thus seizing his chance to completely ruin things for him in return. See more »
A royal flush is an episode i have always wanted to happen, the Trotters meet royalty. And Del boy is, as usual, his wheeling and dealing self, selling dodgy spoons and ruining Rodneys big chance to become a friend of rich people. There are times i feel really sorry for poor old Rodders. I what to scream at Del to leave Rodney alone and keep his nose out. Rodney meets a fellow art student and they become friends. Rodney though, does the stupidest thing and tells Del that his friends father is extremely rich. OOPS!! Big mistake Rodders, as he finds out when Del invites himself to a swanky dinner with Rodney, his friend, her father and her fathers original guests. Trigger makes a slight appearance so you know you will get a laugh out of it.
