    Having watched this episode many times over many years, I have only just noticed that the jailor shows Rodney the middle finger!

    Did you know at Bournemouth Beach in Dorset the BBC crew used stage lighting to imitate the appearance of the Sun for Benidorm scenes involving Del Boy, Grandad and Rodney.

    I like the part when Rodney Trotter and Del went on holiday with their grandad.

    There’s something that has always bothered me about this episode. Why would Alex sell the cheap holiday to Del? The whole point was to get customers into his travel agents.

    Just noticed when Del’s talking to Alex the travel-agent in the Nags Head the scene has clearly been cut halfway through due to, I believe, David Jason forgetting his lines.
    Just after the dialogue where Del says ‘you need a bit of a gimmick’ and Alex replies ‘Such as?’ you can see that David Jason has forgotten his next lines as he mumbles ‘Eh? Well….’ and then the camera angle suddenly changes to a close up of Del’s face as he explains his idea.
    It has clearly been cut as Del’s hand is in a totally different position to the scene a split second earlier and the way he says ‘Eh? Well…..’ seems to me that David Jason was desperately trying to buy some time to remember his next lines. It does happen quite fast and is well edited, but if you watch it a few times you will notice it.
    I bet there were loads of excellent out-takes that a lot of fans would pay good money to see. If only they’d kept them all it would have been brilliant.
    As good as a new episode in my opinion.

    Nice to see Rodney enjoying a holiday abroad – especially due to the fact that in the episode “Who Wants To Be A Millionaire” he wasn’t allowed to fly to Oz due to his drugs charge some years earlier ! In the episode “The Unlucky Winner Is” he’s back in Spain again – and in “If They Could See Us Now” he’s practically touring the world !

      yes but the difference being he was emmigating to Australia, not merely just going on holiday big difference.

    I first watched this episode as a kid having never been to Spain. All my illusions were shattered when I grew up and discovered it was filmed in Bournemouth!
    Does anyone know what month of the year they filmed it there?

    Is the guy checking the passports at the airport also in the bill?

    The pub above is the wrong one `it is now called the hobgoblin`and when they were filming it was called `three johns` photo here…. http://www.flickr.com/photos/rollthedice/5043488276/

    Where Grandad says ‘us Trotters have never been good sailors’, obviously this doesn’t fit in with the Uncle Albert storylines, but Uncle Albert wasn’t exactly know for being a good sailor as apparently every ship he sailed on sank!
