Series 3, Episode 4 - Yesterday Never Comes

When Del acquires a piece of furniture he believes it to be valuable, and when upper-class Miranda answers his newspaper advert for it, he thinks he's gone 'up-market'. But can she really have been wooed by his charm, or is it something more commercial?

Further details

Del Boy enters the world of fine art when he attempts to pull the wool over 'posh tart' antique dealer Miranda Davenport. He unsuccessfully tries to tell her a rickety old cabinet is in fact a 'Queen Anne' original, but wise to the ruse, she coolly declines.

However, her attitude toward the Trotters warms when a painting Del has in stock catches her eye. Miranda soon worms her way into Del's affections and in no time at all, he has given her the painting as a gift.

Keen to see her again, Del pays a visit to her shop, and is informed that she's at the local auction house. Arriving at the auction, Miranda seems quite surprised to see him there, but not as half as surprised as Del Boy when Lot 24 is announced.

The Lot turns out to be Del's painting - a valuable work by 19th century painter Joshua Blythe that Miranda is hoping to make a huge profit on. It seems like Miranda has stung Del good and proper, but as usual, he has the last laugh when he informs her that she's actually selling stolen property.
