Only Fools and Horses

Only Fools and Horses (1981)

5 corrected entries in season 9

Sleepless in Peckham - S9-E3

Corrected entry: If the first Jolly Boys' Outing was in 1960, why does Denzel have a 1970's perm and moustache in the photo?

Andy Benham

Correction: Why not? Is it not possible that some people in the 60s had permed hair and/or moustaches? This may have been more popular in the 70s but surely not unique to the decade.

Strangers on the Shore - S9-E2

Corrected entry: Damien has his magazine wide open when Raquel is telling him how at age 21 a man grows up. But in the next shot when Del comes out of the bedroom on the phone, the magazine is now closed without Damien having time to shut it.

Correction: If you look carefully, just as the first shot ends, he closes it but it is literally just before the shot changes.

Strangers on the Shore - S9-E2

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?

Correction: The gel could have been in his pocket.

Sleepless in Peckham - S9-E3

Corrected entry: When Casandra sees the photo of the first jolly boy's outing, she very quickly recognises Grandad even though she never met him. Even if she'd seen a few old photos, she still couldn't have recognised a younger Grandad.

Correction: There is no reason why Cassandra should not have recognised Grandad, people's apperances don't change that much and also we don't know that Rodney hasen't shown other photos of Grandad to Cassandra. So it's not really a plot hole.

James Ransford

Sleepless in Peckham - S9-E3

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

Correction: Would it have been better if he had said 'Seventeen years, eight months, two days, eight hours and forty-four minutes'? He is making an approximation, and may be a few months out either way. There is no mistake here.
