David Jason (A Touch of Frost, The Darling Buds of May, Porridge) stars in this award-winning BBC series about crafty Cockney confidence trickster Del Trotter who does everything he can to make a fortune by endlessly pursuing his dodgy deals and shady schemes. But each and every one of his brilliantly ill-conceived plans seems to end in disaster. Against all odds, he struggles to support Rodney, his hapless kid brother, and Grandad. Four superb Christmas specials are brought together in one fabulous DVD set, featuring To Hull and Back (1985), Dates (1988) Jolly Boys Outing (1989) and UK ratings winner Rodney Come Home (1990). To Hull and Back (1985): All Del Boy has to do is collect a few diamonds from Amsterdam and bring them back to the UK and hell earn a cool 15K. So why does he end up on a boat twice as far away in the opposite direction?
Dates (1988): Del is delighted with his computer date and can't resist boasting to everyone about Raquel the actress. The rest of the crowd get a chance to meet her sooner than Del planned. How was she to know that her date Derek Duvall was the same man as Del Trotter who had booked her to turn up as a strippergram at the Nag's Head party?
Jolly Boys Outing (1989): Rodney is going on the annual Jolly Boys Outing to Margate. All the usual Nags Head regulars have turned up and it looks like being another great beano. In fact, it goes as well as can be expected considering Harry the coach driver gets drunk, Rodney gets arrested, and the radio bought from Trotters, Independent Traders blows up the coach.
Rodney Come Home (1990): Rodney and Cassandra have only just got back from their honeymoon and their relationship is already in tatters. Cassie has become a workaholic, and Rodney who cannot understand why she wants to attend work functions instead of cooking his tea is fast becoming an alcoholic.
