Series 7 - Rodney Come Home

After thumping Cassandra's boss on the nose, Rodney is now estranged from his wife and living back at the Trotter's flat. Del tries all his devious tricks to get them back together.

Further details

Rodney seems to have it all, a beautiful wife, a cushy job at the father-in-law's printing company, and a lovely home. Del is very happy too, Raquel has agreed to live with him having returned from a theatre tour of America's east coast.

All is not well between Rodney and Cassandra, however. Cassie has become a workaholic, and Rodney cannot understand why she wants to attend work functions instead of cooking his tea.

Del, worried for his brother's happiness (and the loss of cheap printing perks through Rodney's job) plays cupid. Rodney consequently finds himself homeless for the third time in 18 months.
