    the bloke who played Eric the copper in this episode, is actually spooner from rising damp

  2. Anand says:

    Don’t you find it odd that Del was friends with a police officer? After all, he always showed contempt for the Old Bill. Even Grandad says (in “The Long Legs of the Law), “Our kind and their kind don’t mix… We’re like cats and dogs”. Yet in “The Russians are coming” Grandad calls the policeman “Eric boy.”

    I have to say I’m very fond of this episode, though I can certainly see why some others may not be a big fan of the episode due the lack of action and story.

    Something different about this episode is the end credits! They appear different compared to all the other episodes in Series 1.

      I think that’s because anyone slow at getting jokes probably wouldn’t be able to realise the punchline before the credits came up.

    I’m just wondering if anyone knows if the bit when they run out of the flat to the van was filmed at Harlech tower?

    For the attention of Sir David Jason

    I would like to say how much I enjoyed watching the awards show of the Memorandam Show for the Life of Ronnie Barker. What year was It broadcast on the The television. Also Last saturday I was inspired by the show From ronnie barker as well.

    Thank you

    Intresting thing about the registration DHV 938 D is that it is a London Plate. Thus giving you the impression that Del may have brought the Van brand new when he was younger.

      In tea for three, the woman who Del and Rodney are trying to pull say to them “remember when you bought that brand new 3 wheeled van!”
