Storyline

After a visit to the dentist Del unwisely makes a date with the comely receptionist Beverley, but, on Rodney's advice, cancels it. After Del has got drunk and been responsible for causing a riot, he finds Beverley at his flat and fears that she has come for revenge, though she has only come to buy Damien's old high chair. In exchange she gives Del an answer-phone, and, come Christmas Day, he will live to regret this. Written by don @ minifie-1

Fatal Extraction. December 25th 1993
30 December 2014 | by SpikeopathSee all my reviews

Not since the early 1980s had the show actually had Xmas Specials that featured Xmas as part of the story, so it was nice to finally get one that does, and what a Christmas Cracker it proved to be. The title is a play on Fatal Attraction and the episode takes the core essence of that serious thriller and turns it into a riot of gags and situations. Dentist problems, stalking, trying to get pregnant, estate riot and of course the stress of Xmas are all played out with splendid results. The screenplay gives Del and Raquel the chance to play deadly serious as their relationship hits problems, but this also produces some seriously funny moments as the fall out takes them elsewhere… Lovely Jubbly. 9/10
