Only Fools & Horses - Strangers on the Shore

The second part of the final trilogy, Strangers on the Shore sees Del and Rodney on a trip to France to attend Uncle Albert's military reunion, and returning with more duty free than they'd bargained for!

On arrival in the French village, Del (David Jason) and Rodney (Nicholas Lyndhurst) are intrigued to learn that Uncle Albert was hounded out of the country by the Resistance during the war, due to his randy ways! When Del and Rodney notice all the villages share Albert's mariner's beard… is this just a bizarre coincidence?

On the journey back the fun continues when Rodney is annoyed to learn that Del has pre-arranged to meet Boycie (John Challis), Trigg (Roger Lloyd Pack) and Denzil (Paul Barber) for a dodgy booze scam at Duty Free, using Denzil's empty van.

It's only when they get back to sunny Peckham they discover an illegal immigrant has stowed away in the van. Calling him Gary, the boys attempt to pass him off as one of the family, but when he escapes the trouble comes thick and fast, and it is not long before the boys wind up in Les Nick, arrested as The Gary Gang!

Only Fools and Horses continues to be the nation's favourite comedy, with total video sales now exceeding an amazing 6 million units. First screened on Christmas Day 2002, Strangers on the Shore was watched by over 17.4 million people and critically hailed as Only Fools and Horses at its very best, making it a firm favourite with all fans.

To add to his already lovely jubbly collection of awards, this year David Jason was also awarded the BAFTA Fellowship Award for his outstanding services to entertainment.
