Only Fools and Horses

Little Problems

Series 6 - Episode 6 Little Problems



The nuptials of Rodney and Cassandra (first broadcast in 1989) provides Only Fools… with its most bittersweet moment as Del Boy reflects on the sacrifices he’s had to make in order to be a surrogate father to his younger brother. It’s a testament to John Sullivan’s writing that the famous scene in which Del stands alone in the Nag’s Head at the end of the reception ends up being neither jarring nor mawkish.

After so many episodes featuring comedy market-stall grafting, it feels as if the show has earned its segue from slapstick into pathos, as David Jason offers a rare glimpse into Del’s hidden loneliness.


Rodney ties the knot with Cassandra, but Del has more on his mind than best man duties as the dreaded Driscoll brothers arrive at the Nag's Head baying for his blood over some stolen mobile phones. Comedy, starring David Jason, Nicholas Lyndhurst and Gwyneth Strong.
