Trivia

For many people, this and the other two Christmas Specials before and after it are the story's true conclusion, rather than the second trilogy five years later; this was the moment when the curtain came down on Only Fools and Horses.... (1981). David Jason said "everything about the narrative pointed to these being the last ever episodes of Only Fools. The Trotters now officially on their way to wealth". See more »

Goofs

While Rodney is applying for his own job, some crew/equipment can be seen moving in the mirror behind Raquel as she is saying "I'll put you on hold". See more »

Only Fools at its peak
30 December 2016 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

If ever there was an 'Only Fools' episode that highlighted writer John Sullivan's supreme ability to mix comedy and pathos then this is it. What a loss to the world his death really was.

Who else would have dared to talk about a miscarriage in a comedy but him? Nicholas Lyndhurst is fab in this episode, I don't understand why he has not been honoured with an MBE etc. because he is one of the UK's best actors.

This middle part of the 'Only Fools' 1996 trilogy may not have the biggest comic set pieces in the same way that the previous part did, but for final few scenes it is without doubt just as strong.
