    The river policeman was played by John D Collins who later played the vet in Sleeping Dogs Lie. You can tell his posh accent alludes to the same actor as in Sleeping Dogs Lie.

    In the road sweeper scene there is a company in the back ground.. can’t make out the name. Just curious where it’s filmed and if it’s a legit company. Looks like its real as there is a steel lorry outside.

    One thing that I’ve never understood about the main plot of this episode, is why the Trotter’s felt obliged to scatter Trig’s gran’s ashes. Why did they assume they had to perform this very personal duty? Who in their right mind would discover someone elses ashes (especially a best mate’s relative) and go behind their backs to get rid?

    I know that the whole point of this episode was this very funny situation but as a story, it doesn’t really make sense.

      Del took two urns and both contained two sets of ashes. We clearly see Del ‘zammening’ one of the urns with a magnifying glass. I always wondered why he didn’t ever once look inside? Anyway, back to your question. In short, Del wanted them urns because he believes they are worth a few bob. Trig was away on his hols in sunny Ireland and so he didn’t want to wait for trig to come back because Del being a kunt wanted to cash in on them urns asap.

    I wonder what happened to this scene in ‘Ashes to ashes’, we never got to see them take the urn to a church but it was obviously filmed as the photograph shows.

    When Del & Rod are on the river, just before the River Police move them on. In the back ground you can see a Pub and Wapping Old Stairs, The pub is called ‘The Town of Ramsgate’ on Wapping High Street (great food!!). This pub belongs to my parents and is know as one of the oldest London pubs on the river. Historically Wapping Old Stairs is also where Judge Jefferies was arrested, and then hanged.
