Rodney's Art Class is given a £10,000 grant to make a film spotlighting the local community, but first he has to avoid the scheming intentions of Mickey Pearce and Del Boy. Whilst Rodders suffers from writer's block, Del provides him with inspiration and a tale of a killer Rhino escaping from London Zoo and laying waste to innocent victims on the streets of the city. Rodney immediately points out the flaws in the logic behind the plot, and Del leaves him to it. But without telling Rodney, Del has already arranged for Mickey to head down to the town hall to film different couples' weddings at £50 a time - and he has also managed to persuade half the neighbourhood to pay £10 for the opportunity of becoming an movie extra. To make things worse, Mickey arranges for the lovely Amanda to pop round the Trotters' flat in her nurse's uniform and begin filming a 'blue movie' called Night Nurse, which is due for its premiere in the back room of The Nag's Head.

The best of season 5
12 August 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This episode is the best, i think of season five's Only fools and Horses. Rodders has to write a story and make a film and Del boy decides to help him in every way he can, even if Rodney doesn't want that help! Del has this WONDERFUL idea of a rhino and a beautiful zoo keeper(I wont go any further!).

Meanwhile Boyce and Marline still cant have a baby and Boyce's darkest secret is revealed. Unfortunately its Del who finds out so soon everyone knows. Uncle Albert is very good in this episode and made me laugh a lot. Del boy is at his nosey, cheeky and interfering self. I cant believe Mikey Pearce isn't shown in every episode. Here he is like a younger Del. And thankfully he has a big part in this one. The ending is a bit poor and is hard to understand. But I got it about half way through the credits.
