Storyline

Derek Trotter has the Yuletide Blues, and drinks away his loneliness in Spanish night at The Nag's Head. There he meets Heather, who seems to be one friend short of company. Del Boy, ever the gentleman, entertains her and sees her home safely. At her flat he discovers that she has a young son, to a husband who seems to have joined a very long queue at the Job Centre 18 months ago and not come back. In no time at all their romance blossoms, and all is running so smoothly Del decides to propose. However, when he takes her for a candle-lit curry, she refuses his offer of marriage. Her husband has returned, employed as a department store Santa, and she wants to give it another go... leaving Del Boy without an angel for Christmas. Written by Rune Thandy

Love is in the air...
20 December 2017 | by canndymanSee all my reviews

This is an excellent and unusual episode of OF & H - and a big improvement of the previous year's Christmas episode. It contains much more pathos than we've previously seen, and isn't a million miles away from the kind of bittersweet humour we would see the following year in Just Good Friends - also of course from the pen of John Sullivan.

We get to see a different side of Del, as he craves a cosy family life away from the Trotter's tower-block existence and, as viewers, we want him to be happy. But how would that leave Rodney and Grandad?

Rosalind Lloyd is perfect in the part of Heather - attractive and charming, and just the sort of woman who could take care of Del. She's fresh here from her role earlier that year in the movie 'Who Dares Wins', where she played Lewis Collins' character's wife.

A very endearing episode, and a great end to season 2.
