Storyline

Del meets Trigger in The Nags Head, and he's stunned to hear that Pauline Harris, his ex-fiancée, is back in Peckham - twelve years after she left for America. Despite their engagement, Pauline left Del for another Mod with a faster scooter. But with her return, Del is willing to forgive and forget, and it's not long before they are engaged again - much to the disapproval of Rodney and Grandad. Things get worse when Pauline moves into the flat and refuses to do her share of the housework. As her behaviour becomes unbearable, Rodders and Gramps leave for Auntie Rose's cottage in Clacton. Del hears rumours about a recent police investigation into the death of Pauline's former husband (Bobby Finch), and when Pauline urges him to take out life insurance, a frightened Del heads for Clacton, leaving an eviction notice for his fiancée.

Trivia

This episode is clearly linked to Only Fools and Horses....: The Miracle of Peckham (1986) when Granddad is talking to Rodney about how Del Boy used to donate to the church roof fund. John Sullivan went and wrote a whole episode based on the same idea five years later. See more »

Another Bent o' the Ol' Nail
17 October 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Season One was obviously not a brilliant one. It was still a working project and 'The Second Time Around' was just worse. The story goes: Del meets his old love Pauline but he finds that she is dominant and tiresome. So he escapes only to find that she has made a thousand pounds phone bill back home.

'Second Time Around' is a one-joke (bad joke) episode which revolves around Del (who isn't himself in this one) and Pauline (an incredibly annoying and tedious character i couldn't stand) and it just doesn't work. I was bored and annoyed during most of the episode and laughed only once. It's not the usual OFAH episode and John Sullivan was clearly not a developed writer at the time.
