Storyline

The Trotters arrive in Miami, where they are spotted by Mafia Don Vincenzo Occhetti and his sons, the don just happening to be Del's exact double. The Occhettis welcome the brothers but they have a plan. Occhetti is to stand trial for several crimes. If Del is found dead and it is assumed that he is the Mafioso, the don will be in a position to start a new life. Several unsuccessful attempts to kill Del follow, as does an argument between Rodney and Occhetti, whom Rodney believes to be his brother. When Del and Rodney tumble to what is happening they go on the run but are saved by Marlene and Boycie, who are on holiday in Miami. They also supply evidence of the Occhettis' drug-dealing. Back home in Peckham Del finds the crates of wine stacked up in his flat but the television news tells him that, thanks to his efforts, Occhetti has been imprisoned. Written by don @ minifie-1

Trivia

David Jason described Barry Gibb as wonderfully self-effacing. Gibb invited Jason and Nicholas Lyndhurst into his house, gave them tea and showed them around; the place was like a palace. Gibb was a big fan of the show and used to get tapes of it sent to America. See more »

Good movie in its own right
3 September 2019 | by dominic-parisSee all my reviews

As a Christmas special, this episode is a fairly good movie in its own right. Regarded by David Jason as one of his favourites, we get a wonderful combination of British humour and authentic American dialogue which sometimes serves to comedically confuse the characters who couldn't be further apart in terms of lifestyle and - at times - the English language. The mafia heavies are brilliantly cast, believable and not overplayed or terribly exaggerated as you might expect from an English writer writing for Americans. John Sullivan was able to get it right here. David Jason's excellent portrayal of the sinister but likeable character, Don Ochetti, is just enough to take the episode from being an idea on paper as perhaps being rather silly, to an enjoyable and not to mention funny movie that is quite believable but more importantly a lot of fun. If you haven't seen this episode, or you haven't revisited it for a while, do so. It's worth the hour and a bit.
