Storyline

Derek Trotter has the Yuletide Blues, and drinks away his loneliness in Spanish night at The Nag's Head. There he meets Heather, who seems to be one friend short of company. Del Boy, ever the gentleman, entertains her and sees her home safely. At her flat he discovers that she has a young son, to a husband who seems to have joined a very long queue at the Job Centre 18 months ago and not come back. In no time at all their romance blossoms, and all is running so smoothly Del decides to propose. However, when he takes her for a candle-lit curry, she refuses his offer of marriage. Her husband has returned, employed as a department store Santa, and she wants to give it another go... leaving Del Boy without an angel for Christmas. Written by Rune Thandy

A lovely Christmas episode
27 December 2016 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

It's not one of the best known 'Only Fools' episodes, or even Christmas Specials, but I've always had a soft spot for 'Diamonds Are for Heather' because it shows the character of Del Boy in a really nice light - we see his longing for a real family.

There are some lovely moments, namely the 'Zoom' montage and the rather poignant final scene.

Sir David Jason carries the episode really, though Nicholas Lyndhurst and Lennard Pearce of course shine in the moments they are given.

It's not iconic in the same way the 'Batman and Robin' episode is, but this is a good 'Only Fools' episode.
