Corrected entry: When Del Boy is telling Marlene and Boycie about the baby they were going to adopt being a girl rather than a boy, which they'd thought, he says "I know I told you it was gonna be a girl, but it ain't", when he should have said, "I know I told you it was gonna be a BOY, but it ain't".OliviaD3601
Corrected entry: In "Thicker Than Water", when Del and Rodney's dad returns claiming he has an illness, he persuades them both to have a blood test to reveal if they have the same illness. When they get the result, it's revealed that the blood groups of Del and Rodney are different (Rodney being "A" and Del being "AB"). Not long after the reveal, Dad tells them that Del is the one with the different blood group and is the one with a different dad. This gets forgotten, as at the end the dad was just dismissed as Del tells Rodney that he went for another blood test but got told there was no point. As the programme goes on, we have the episode "The Frog's Legacy", which is the first inkling that Rodney has a different dad, but they just dismiss it -- until the final episode, "Sleepless in Peckham", when they blow the photo up and it is revealed that Rodney would have in fact had a different dad. If that is the case, how was it Del had the different blood group to the rest of the family in "Thicker Than Water" rather than Rodney?David Hutchinson
Corrected entry: When Del is first told about the gold bullion (and the character Freddy the Frog) by Trigger's Aunty, Del says he has never heard of him or his reputation. Yet in the final episode, "If They Could See Us Now," Del is seen on a photograph with Freddy the frog and the rest of the gang on a jolly boys' outing, so he surely would have known him. Also after Rodney finds out that Freddy is his real father, he asks Del if he was anything like him and Del goes on to explain what kind of person Freddy was, but how did he know if he never knew him?
Corrected entry: The antiques dealer reads a date from the watch, something in the late 1700s. He then says that this watch and several like it were made in the 17th century. Well considering the 17th century is the 1600s either the date on the watch should be in the 1600s or the antiques dealer doesn't know his centuries.
Corrected entry: During exchanges between Mr Peterson and Lennox, we find out that there is 60 grand in the safe as Friday is the store's busiest day. When Lennox is taken into the office, the store is still open, so how did the 60 grand make its way from the tills to the office safe? Tender pickups are done after the store has closed. The time when they do attempt to open the safe is quarter past six (after the store has closed) but still there would have needed to be a member of the office staff to bring the money to the safe while the Trotters, Lennox and the other two were in the office. Also a safe would not be located in the manager's office, it would more likely be in the general office or cash office.James Ransford
Corrected entry: When Abdul worries that Del, Rodney and Albert have sunk, Boycie says, "Don't worry, they've got their uncle Albert with them". How does Boycie know this? Del said in the back of Denzel's lorry that it was just him and Rodney and that they were going by plane and that was the last time they spoke to each other, so there was no other way of knowing.Joe Mc
Corrected entry: After Delboy and Raquel leave the club together, the scene cuts to the next morning, where Uncle Albert is surprised that Rodney has not yet gone to work. However, when Rodney passes by the window, it's dark outside. (And it's not because it's early morning - if it was very early, it would not have been unusual for Rodney to have not yet gone to work.).Moose
Corrected entry: At the beginning of this episode, Del gets revenge on Boycie by squeezing a tub of onion purée into his hair gel. Later in the episode, Boycie visits Del in his flat and asks to stay a few nights since he has been locked out of the house without being able to take anything with him and wasn't allowed to go back until further notice. Raquel complains a few days later that Boycie keeps putting on his rotten hair gel then complaining about the smell. How could he keep putting it on if he had been evicted from his house and not allowed to go back?
Corrected entry: Back in 1982, when the episode "The Yellow Peril" was screened, Del Boy said that the fibreglass grave of his mum had been standing for 17 years, which would mean she died in 1965. However in the final ever episode "Sleepless in Peckham" it says on the grave that she died in 1964. This doesn't make sense as he had already said she hadn't gone in the grave till the year later.David Hutchinson
Corrected entry: Del first met Raquel in 1988 in the Christmas episode 'Dates'. At that time, Rodney had not yet met Cassandra (episode was made before series 6 and Rodney was seeing another girl). Del met Raquel again exactly a year later in the 1989 Christmas Special "The Jolly Boys Outing". In this episode Rodney and Cassandra are celebrating their first wedding anniversary.
