Series 1, Episode 2 - Deals And Misdemeanours

Deals And Misdemeanours explores all the hooky deals and bent gear the Trotters have 'knocked out' in and around the markets stalls of Peckham, which would always land Del and Rodney in some sort of trouble.

Further details

Whether it was turban crash helmets, masquerading as chandelier cleaners or getting into music management with Tony Angelino, Del always had an eye to turn a quick pound. The episode explores how Del got his market trader look and features a rare sketch from over thirty years ago which the cast performed for the Royal Family.

With Sir David Jason and Nicholas Lyndhurst, with contributions from the cast including John Challis, Sue Holderness, Tessa Peake-Jones and Gwyneth Strong as well as insights from fans such as Jonathan Ross, Danny Baker, James Buckley and Theo Paphitis.
