The Final Specials - Sleepless In Peckham

With the bankruptcy court ordering the family home in Nelson Mandela house to be auctioned, the Trotters' financial nightmare is fast approaching meltdown.

Combined with Cassandra about to give birth at anytime, Marlene's mysterious disappearance and Trigger behaving even more bizarrely than usual, its little wonder that no one is sleeping soundly in Peckham.

Further details

The Trotters have had a turbulent couple of years. After becoming millionaires in 1996, they burst back on the box, after a five year gap, for viewers to realise they had lost the money. The high life in Monte Carlo was replaced by the low life in Peckham as they found themselves owing a large amount of money to the Inland Revenue. Del Boy even tried to win the money they owed by appearing as a contestant on a television quiz show - but Rodders two GCE's were of no help and they went home empty handed.

Rodney and Cassandra had tried to inject some fun into their relationship, with a little help from some fancy dress costumes. Unfortunately for them Del caught them as 'Gladiator' Rodney and 'Police Woman' Cassandra hotted things up in the flat. The second episode took the Trotters on a trip to France where they ended up bringing back more than the booze they bargained for. They inadvertently smuggled an unwilling illegal immigrant.

In Sleepless In Peckham, the third and final instalment, Del Boy and family have only two weeks to find the cash to pay the Inland Revenue, or they will be evicted from their home in Nelson Mandela House. After 22 years in the flat, it could be goodbye, something Del and Rodney are determined will not happen.

Meanwhile Trigger has become fascinated by science fiction and is enthralled by programmes such as The X-Files, which leads to some bizarre moments from him - who it could be said lives on a planet all of his own anyway.
