Storyline

Going to France to scatter the late Uncle Albert's ashes near the village where he spent part of the war, Del decides to kill two birds with one stone and organize a booze cruise. At the village they learn that Albert was a real ladies' man, which could be why most of the menfolk resemble him. Back in Peckham they discover a young man who seems to have stowed away in their van and can only answer "Gary" to everything asked of him. In fact he is called Rashid and he was loading the van when he got trapped behind the booze. He was carried to England against his wishes and Del and company get charged with kidnapping him.

Trivia

Many people consider the 1996 Christmas trilogy the story's true conclusion rather than the 2001/2002/2003 trilogy; that was when the curtain came down on Only Fools and Horses.... (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 since John Sullivan was writing it, everyone felt obligated to return. See more »

The best of the final trilogy
29 December 2016 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

'Only Fools' fans will forever be divided about whether the show should have returned for the final 01-03 trilogy, but what most people seem to agree on is that this episode was the best of the three.

The reason for this mainly is the fact that the Trotters losing their millions isn't really mentioned, and it feels much more like a 'classic' episode that could've come from any time in the shows life.

Yes, the 'Gary' joke is silly, but it's played well, and just the idea of Boycie staying with the Trotters is funny in itself.

I can't say I'm the biggest fan of the 01-03 trilogy episodes, but I did enjoy this one.
