Series 7, Episode 1 - The Sky's The Limit

Rodney's marriage problems have made him seek solace from drink but, although he offers help, Del is too busy himself to offer any practical help

Further details

Raquel has moved in with Del, as has the newly separated Rodney. When Rodders isn't asleep on the couch he's drinking too much, or nursing hangovers.

While Cassandra and her mother travel to Spain for a holiday, Alan Parry - Cassie's Dad and Rodney's boss - visits Del Boy and confides he was hoping to leave his business to the couple. They hatch a plot to arrange a second honeymoon for them.

Rodney pays £250 for their trip, and waits for Cassandra to arrive at Gatwick airport. When he learns the real reason behind her flight being diverted, Del has some serious explaining to do. As the brothers argue over who's technique is best, the objects of their affections are whisked away from under their noses.
