Storyline

Rodney has ran out of yuletide cheer, as the annual routing of the Trotter festivities are wearing thin. Burnt turkey, charred Christmas pudding, the same old things on television, and nothing but a book lent to him by Mickey Pierce: 'Body Language: The Lost Art.' When Grandad puts on his glad rags and heads to the OAPs' party at the community centre, the Trotter boys head to The Monte Carlo Club. Rodney puts his new-found knowledge of the unspoken language of love to use, but Del Boy has other ideas. As the brothers argue over who's technique is best, the objects of their affections are whisked away from under their noses. Written by Rune Thandy

Christmas Crackers. 28th December 1981
28 December 2014 | by hitchcockthelegendSee all my reviews

Rodney is cheesed off with Xmas, the usual rubbish on the telly and the prospect of eating yet another of Grandad's food poisoned dinners has left him at his wits end. A good solid episode with family loyalties beating away under the frivolity. The comedy gold comes from the dinner itself, which truly is disgusting and funny in equal measure, and then there's Rodney's attempts at trying to use body language as a way of wooing the ladies after been given a book by Mickey Pearce! We trundle towards a climax at the famed Monte Carlo club, which only shows us that the show was still in its infancy and finding its feet. But still this has great OFAH moments and it whets the appetite for series 2. 7/10
