Bid 'bonjour' to Britain's favourite sitcom with this 'triffic' box set of Christmas specials. Featuring the last three Christmas specials. You'd be a 'plonker' to miss it!

If They Could See Us Now: As bankruptcy looms, they're forced to decamp to the old flat in Nelson Mandela Towers and return to their wheeler-dealer ways of old.

Strangers On The Shore: Del and Rodney take a trip to France to attend their late uncle Albert's military reunion and end up harbouring 'Gary' the refugee. Meanwhile Boycie looks set to become a multi-millionaire!

Sleepless In Peckham: Del, Rodney and Boycie are in jail in France for kidnapping. The stowaway in their van whom they assumed was an illegal immigrant turned out to be an important businessman who had been trapped in the back.

To add to the Trotters' problems, they about to be kicked out of Nelson Mandela House, as they still owe the Inland Revenue and have no hope of paying their debt in time. Then Cassandra goes into labour, and Rodney discovers that his father is not who he thought he was.

 Mediocre, rather pointless specials

| | See all WelshAdam's reviews (21)

For many OFAH fans these episodes are by far a low point in the entire franchise. I don't think they're as bad as they're generally made out to be, but I can see why this is. The previous specials which formed the 1996 Christmas trilogy gave us the perfect ending to a perfect series, there was no need to carry it on beyond that. Yet five years later, in 2001, the Trotters were back in a rather padded out episode that pretty much rendered that ending meaningless. It had it's moments, the funeral scene in particular was great, but in all in all it was a bit of a mess and lacking the magic of older OFAH episodes.

The second special from 2002 is an improvement, it's still a bit rough around the edges, but the illegal immigrant storyline is classic OFAH stuff. Del and Rodney's discovery of their late Uncle Albert's dirty old ways, whilst far-fetched, is also bound to raise a smile or two.

The third and final special from 2003 is a bit bland and IMO a somewhat unsatisfactory conclusion to the series. It does tie up a few loose ends; Rodney and Cassandra finally have a baby, Freddie the Frog is confirmed as Rodney's real father, and Uncle Albert leaves a nice surprise in his will that gets the Trotters back on their feet, but other than that it is pretty forgettable and the plot is almost non-existent.

Still, what's done is done, ideally the series would have ended with the spectacular 1996 Christmas trilogy, but whether we like it or not the Trotter's returned once more in three more Christmas specials. They're definitely worth watching, but are by no means the best of OFAH. With Buster Merryfield and Kenneth MacDonald both dead, the remaining cast getting on a bit, Damien being a slight annoyance and the plot going backwards, these specials just go to show that by bringing OFAH back they were trying to squeeze a grand out of a tenner. The second episode is good, the other two are watchable but we could've done without any of them. Catch them if you can.
