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

(1981). David Jason
acknowledged that the critics felt they shouldn't have gone back to it, that the bow so neatly tied in 1996 was now undone again. But the public wanted more, and so did the BBC, and John Sullivan
was writing it, so everyone felt obligated to return. See more
