Trivia

Many assumed after this episode that was the end of Only Fools and Horses.... (1981) because it would be three years before the next episode. But John Sullivan was keen on tying up the loose ends by making the Trotters millionaires. See more »

Goofs

Rodney tells Cassandra that Del did not turn for his O-Level/GCE exams and got eight straight 'A's which stood for "Absent", yet in the second Rock & Chips episode, "Five Gold Rings", Del was shown to have left school before taking his GCE's. His family were fully aware of it, and they did not send Del back to school because he was their breadwinner. See more »

Fatal Extraction. December 25th 1993
30 December 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Not since the early 1980s had the show actually had Xmas Specials that featured Xmas as part of the story, so it was nice to finally get one that does, and what a Christmas Cracker it proved to be. The title is a play on Fatal Attraction and the episode takes the core essence of that serious thriller and turns it into a riot of gags and situations. Dentist problems, stalking, trying to get pregnant, estate riot and of course the stress of Xmas are all played out with splendid results. The screenplay gives Del and Raquel the chance to play deadly serious as their relationship hits problems, but this also produces some seriously funny moments as the fall out takes them elsewhere… Lovely Jubbly. 9/10
