Storyline

Boycie is less than overjoyed to learn that Marlene's sister Petunia - or Pertunia, as he pronounces it - is coming for a visit not just because they don't like each other, she feeling that Marlene married beneath herself, but because he also fears that the Driscoll brothers may have followed her from Peckham. He even insists she is blindfold coming from the station to the farm so she will not know the route. His fears are not unfounded after he finds Bryan, who has taken a fancy to her, and the other farm staff tied up in the barn. The Driscolls have arrived, but are prepared to let Boycie live in exchange for their burying 'something' on his farm. Written by don @ minifie-1

An odd direction for the show to take
17 February 2017 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

The whole premise for this 'Only Fools' spin-off was that Boycie and family were on the run from the dreaded Driscoll Brothers.

This episode decides to do away with the suspense of 'will they find him?', which is an odd decision because the whole show rests on it. Yes, the way they find him is funny, as is the episode in general, but having found him it does make the rest of the show (it would run for a further two series) a bit pointless.

After this point the show became 'Boycie and Marlene on a farm', which was funny enough (though the fourth series dropped off in quality considerably) but without the threat of the Driscoll's the premise of the show had been exceeded.
