Rock & Chips: The Frog and The Pussycat - Preview & competition
Preview by Jack Foley
CATCH up with the Trotters as they return for a third hilarious helping of Rock & Chips in this hour-long comedy drama from the pen of John Sullivan.
Rock & Chips: The Frog and the Pussycat stars Nicholas Lyndhurst as light-fingered Freddie Robdal, Kellie Bright as ever-hopeful Joan Trotter and James Buckley as the young Del Boy.
Phil Daniels returns as Grandad, Shaun Dingwall is back as work-shy Reg Trotter and Robert Daws is Joan Trotter’s sleazy manager Raynor.
Paula Wilcox picks up her knitting needles again as Reg’s mother Violet and Mel Smith is back to restore law and order to the streets of Peckham as Freddie’s nemesis DI Thomas.
This special is an essential addition for all fans of Britain’s favourite sitcom, Only Fools and Horses.
Rock & Chips: The Frog and The Pussycat is out on DVD on May 2, courtesy of Lions Gate Home Entertainment. A Triple Pack containing episodes 1-3 is also available.
It’s 1961 and Joan is still keeping the Trotter fortunes afloat, holding down two jobs – one at the Ritz cinema and the other as Freddie Robdal’s charlady. But she’s been working for Freddie for six months and still doesn’t know how to turn on his hoover – their time is spent in far more romantic pursuits.
Back at the Ritz, Joan is plagued by the less welcome attentions of her boss, Raynor. Every day she dreams of a new life with Freddie, but she knows she needs to see Del settled first.
Del is doing his best, continuing to get himself hitched to half of Peckham. He’s particularly keen on the voluptuous Barbara – whose father has a thriving funeral business and a well-appointed home in Peckham posh-spot King’s Avenue.
Things are going extremely well until Del gets trapped in the kitchen with Barbara’s inebriated mum…
Meanwhile, DI Thomas is still desperate to get an arrest for the Margate jewellery heist and Freddie’s fondness for Joan proves to be his undoing.
