Series 6, Episode 5 - Sickness & Wealth
Del is having stomach pains. It could be his new fast-paced Yuppy lifestyle, or it could the eviction notice demanding three months worth of unpaid rent up front.
TITCO hasn't been doing well of late, and the pressure's on to raise the arrears before it's too late.
The solution presents itself in the shape of Uncle Albert's lady-friend Elsie Partridge, a former medium who used to donate thousands that she was paid for her services, to the Battersea Dogs' Home.
Del thinks it's a load of mumbo-jumbo, but sets up a seance room in The Nags Head. Albert, worried for Del's health, tells Elsie to say his Mum has contacted her asking him to go the doctor.
When Marlene falls pregnant, just as Elsie foresaw, Del takes heed and is prescribed with irritable bowl syndrome. When he gets home Rodney has another shock for him: he and Cassie are engaged.
Although he features prominently in some scenes of this episode, Roger Lloyd-Pack (Trigger) is not listed in the credits.
