1996 Christmas Trilogy - Heroes And Villains
Rodney's fertility schedule is wearing him down. Such is Cassandra's need to have a baby, he buys her a rabbit, Roger, to care for until a little one arrives.
Del has a shipment of Latvian alarm clocks he can't shift and his home improvement grant has been rejected.
It's Rodders' birthday, and Del buys him a cheap gold bracelet inscribed 'Rooney'. Finding themselves on a rare boys night out, they dress up as Batman and Robin for a fancy dress party held for a local publican. En route, they prevent Councillor Murray from being mugged.
They arrive at the party, to discover it's actually a wake, and that 'fancy dress' meant 'dress well'.
The following day Del is awarded a bravery medal for tackling another mugger, and Cassandra has good news: She's pregnant.
