Storyline

Due to bad investment and the Central American stock market crash the Trotters lose all their money. Whilst Rodney and Cassandra spice up their love life by dressing up, Del decides to restore the family wealth by going on the quiz show 'Gold Rush', hosted by Jonathan Ross. He does very well but has to phone Rodney for the answer to the jackpot question, and Rodney gives the wrong answer. Back home Del gets a call from the show to say that Rodney's answer was actually correct so that Del has won the prize money after all. Unfortunately Del thinks it's pub regular Mickey playing a trick on him and tells Ross to give the "winnings" to charity... Written by don @ minifie-1

A return for the Trotters, but should they have returned at all?
29 December 2016 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

John Sullivan was on a hiding to nothing by bringing back the Trotters in 2001, in three specials that would see them lose their millions. For everyone who wanted 'Only Fools' back there was another who said that it would unravel the perfect 1996 ending.

There was so much to re-establish in this episode and that slows the pace down. Not only do we have to see how the Trotters lost their money, but there's also the death of Uncle Albert to deal with too. This makes for a slow first half hour.

There are some nice scenes along the way (Rodney being a gladiator) but the weaker moments and the fact that everyone looks a little too long in the tooth to be doing it meant that by the end of the episode I was joining the 'it shouldn't have come back' side of the argument.
