Del Boy enters the world of fine art when he attempts to pull the wool over 'posh tart' antique dealer Miranda Davenport. He unsuccessfully tries to tell her a rickety old cabinet is in fact a 'Queen Anne' original, but wise to the ruse, she coolly declines. Her attitude towards Del does warm when she responds to an advertisement placed by the Trotters in the local paper. When a painting Del has in stock catches her eye, Miranda soon worms her way into Del's affections and in no time at all, he has given her the painting as a gift. Keen to see her again, Del pays a visit to her shop, and is informed that she's at the local auction house. Arriving at the auction, Miranda seems quite surprised to see him there, but not as half as surprised as Del Boy when Lot 24 is announced. The Lot turns out to be Del's painting - a valuable work by 19th century painter Joshua Blythe that Miranda is hoping to make a huge profit on.

A return to form and Del Boy at his charming best.
16 April 2015 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

After a very slight downwards turn in form we get a excellent return to form with some really funny moments and a strong story.

Del falls for a posh art dealer named Miranda Davenport who comes to look at the Queen Anne cabinet he and Rodney have bought but she might only be interested in Del's Grandmothers painting,problem is Del might be too smitten to notice.

There are some very moments in this including Del saying perhaps Queen Anne played darts as he explains the holes in the cabinet,Rodney explaining how Miranda looked at him to which Del says it looks like she got a hot chip in her mouth,Rodney trying out the same technique with a lady Del did with Miranda but not coming up with a good result,Del saying the chicken was a bit rubbery that she nearly ended up blowing bubbles with it.

A top episode with some real laugh out load moments and proof that when a Trotter falls for woman it doesn't always end well.
