    I love this episode but one thing always bothered me. Why would an Asian Doctor phone Del to tell him Arnie was dead? Why would Arnie have his number on him and wouldn’t the doctor only phone next to kin? The Doctor even says his wife has took the gold chains with him so even more reasons that it would be strange that the Doctor should phone. I know it was a con but surely this would be something the other lads would have worked out. Aside from that, a wonderful episode and definietly one of my favourites.

    I like this one too. Its clever but not over-plotted premise of ‘con-men vs con-men’ is reminscent of The Sting in a way. In fact it’s a story that could have been made without any Only Fools… characters and existed as a seperate play/film. That said, it was still a great use of Del, Boycie and Co. The only sad part is that I was always expecting Arnie to return in a later episode like a bad penny (the way Slater did) for some kind of revenge. Come to think of it, what do you think they actually did to him at the end of the episode? It (or indeed he) was never referred to again was it?
