Only Fools and Horses 9.00pm BBC1
It's three years since we last met the Trotters, but tonight they're back for a three-part mini-series that may prove to be their swansong. David Jason and Nicholas Lyndhurst took time off from A Touch of Frost and Goodnight Sweetheart to be reunited with writer John Sullivan for two months, during which they worked round the clock to record the latest adventures of Del Boy and Rodney.
Trotters Independent Traders Company (alias Titco plc) is lurching from one disaster to another: Del has bought 125 unpredictable Latvian radio alarms and a boxful of baseball caps "that even East 17 fans wouldn't wear". But there are compensations, not least the joys of fatherhood as little Damien grows up. Only Fools and Horses continues on Friday.
