1996 Christmas Trilogy - Time On Our Hands
This third 1996 special was at the time thought to be last that would be made. Rodney's doing a stock take in the garage and has found an artificial leg, some Showaddywaddy LPs and an old watch. They get the watch valued and get just a little shock when it sells at Sotherby's for £6.2 million pounds. After all these years their finally millionaires!
Rodney is bottling his emotions following the loss of his baby. Del, realising Cassandra needs his support, wants to help Rodney adjust. Raquel's estranged parents arrive for a meal, and to meet their daughter's new man. He does little to impress, and Uncle Albert mixes the coffee with the gravy by accident.
The next day, Raquel's father meets Rodney and Del as they clear their garage. Being an antiques dealer, he spots a long-lost 18th Century Harrison marine watch, which he recommends getting valued. When the watch is sold for auction at Sotherby's, the highest bid is for £6.2 million pounds.
After 16 years of poverty the Trotters finally make it rich!
