Series 4 - To Hull And Back
Boycie and Abdul pitch a diamond scam to Del Boy, who immediately turns them down.
That is until they offer him a £15,000 cut of the estimated £150,000 sale of the stone on the UK market. Del finds himself designated as the courier between Holland and Britain.
No sooner has Del enlisted a reluctant Rodders, before he hears his old foil Detective Chief Inspector Slater is eyeing Boycie and Abdul as jewel smugglers. Del quickly arranges to meet the two businessmen inside Denzil's truck to hurry along arrangements.
Denzil then getting in and driving him to Hull (pursued by Rodney) was not part of the plan. Thinking quickly, they hire a boat, order Uncle Albert up on the train, and have him guide them to Amsterdam.
Overcoming counterfeit cash, Albert's amnesia, and two sea crossings from hell, it's only the arrival of Slater that scuppers the plans. And yet, it's Del who has the last laugh...
