Storyline

The Trotter's have fallen on hard times, largely due to Rodney's £500 investment in suntan lotion during one of the worst winters ever seen. To make things worse, the deep-fat fryer they sold to Mike, landlord of The Nag's Head, is on the blink and the tension brings Del and Rodney to boiling point. But throughout all this trouble, Uncle Albert, who Rodders blames for their bad luck, keeps telling them that something will turn up. As Albert leaves the pub, he accidentally falls through an open cellar door, and the Trotters' quickly come up with a way to get some cash - by suing the pub for damages. Albert's accident claim finally makes it to court, but to the shock of Del and Rodney, it appears that their Uncle has already sought 15 identical damages claims going back to 1944. Their case gets chucked out of court, and Albert admits he was using some of the tricks he learnt in parachute training to try and help Del and Rodney pay for Grandad's headstone.

Trivia

This was originally written for Grandad and meant to be the fourth series opener, but unfortunately, Lennard Pearce passed away from a heart attack after the filming of Grandad falling down the Nag's Head cellar and the courthouse scene. "Hole in One" was put on hold after Christmas 1984, and Only Fools and Horses....: Happy Returns (1985) and Only Fools and Horses....: Strained Relations (1985) were written and filmed for the series. Once Buster Merryfield joined the cast, the scenes with Grandad were re-shot with Albert (the only shots of the Grandad version kept in the Uncle Albert version were Mike looking up at Grandad) The rest of the original footage has never been transmitted, and is not available on DVD.
