FROM PRUSSIA WITH LOVE (31st August 1986)
When a German damsel turns up in the Nag's Head she's definitely in distress - and nine months pregnant at that. Rodney's all beer and sympathy but Del's got an idea - could this be the answer to Boycie and Marlene's dreams of a child and a golden opportunity to make a few bob along the way?

THE MIRACLE OF PECKHAM (7th September 1986)
Del Boy gets religion (or is he just on the make ?). The Madonna at the local church is seen to shed tears, but why does she only cry when it's raining and where did all that lead come from that's in Del's garage ?

THE LONGEST NIGHT (14th September 1986)
A burglar makes a daring raid on the local supermarket just a Del and family are out buying their weekly French stick. What's worse - Del sold him a duff watch down the local market...

TEA FOR THREE (21st September 1986)
Look out ! Del's tampered with the sunbed controls and Rodney's seeing red - literally ! His face is done to a turn. He'll hardly wow Trigger's lovely niece, Lisa, with his handsome good looks now which leaves the way pretty clear for Del himself. But revenge should certainly be sweet when he volunteers Del for a spot of hang gliding....

VIDEO NASTY (28th September 1986)
Rodney's been commissioned to make a film, with Mickey Pearce in the casting couch and practising with the camera filming just a few weddings, thanks to Del, 'earn while you learn'. More extra's than Ben Hur, what could go wrong ?

WHO WANTS TO BE A MILLIONAIRE ? (5th October 1986)
Del Boy gets the chance to become a millionaire and make a fresh start with his old partner Jumbo Mills, down under in Australia, running his used car business. Both having equal shares in the company with 51% each !

Only fools and horses series 5 is great and like the other series it will make you laugh. They one of those programmes which you can watch over and over again.

The Not-So-Complete Series 5.
This is the first time I have been disappointed with the BBC's DVD release of this fantastic comedy series. This is aimed specifically at the episode "Tea for Three" arguably one of the best in the series. On this DVD, there are segments deleted out of this episode, such as: Albert singing his song about his wife Ada, in the pub; bits of the conversation with Del, Rodney and Lisa in the Pub; bits of the dinner conversation at Del's flat .
Come on BBC, go back to the original source when mastering these DVD's. Makes me feel that this DVD is dodgey, and something Del Boy himself would sell to the Punters.

What a treat series five of 'Only Fools and Horses' is, each episode is like spending half an hour in the comfort zone.

The show was at a peak, and by now had become the BBC's number one comedy show. Del, Rodney and Uncle Albert hit the heights of hilarity in these six episodes, broadcast originally on the channel from August to October 1986.

This was the series that had Del Boy believe he had discovered 'The Miracle of Peckham' at the local church, and there was money to be made, as well as the priceless 'The Longest Night' where the family are held hostage at the local supermarket over night, and 'Video Nasty', where Del sees an opportunity to make a film in the local community.

John Sullivan is untouchable when it comes to penning a good comedy script, and the fifth season of his brain child will have you playing the DVD over and over.

What can you say....an intertwined part of British culture now, both in the 'slang' (most people think "bruv" is a new term....lol!), in the gags (a lot of stand up comics (or twats) reference ol' Del Boy...and sometimes Rodders!, and characters, I know at least one Mickey Pearce, one Trigger, at least 3 Del's, and numerous Rodneys!!! Funny as f, timeless if you were born in the late 70's little England and had chips with everything (and your parents got you whatever wanted out of the catalogue for Christmas and spent the next year paying for it....and you watched Wizbit.....and know who Drooper and Snork are....etc!)

The fifth series contains six episodes which are all classics. What's more Buster Merryfield seems to have mastered Albert as early as his second series as I was a bit hippocritical not to accept him after Grandad; but I take it all back. Worthwhile episodes include 'The Miracle of Peckham' and 'The Longest Night.'

Classic moments on this series include: Boycie wanting to buy a baby from a German au pair (From Prussia With Love); a 'crying' statuette of the Virgin Mary (The Miracle of Peckham); the Trotters held hostage in a supermarket (The Longest Night); Del goes hand gliding (Tea for Three); Rodney gets involved in a blue movie (Video Nasty) and Del is offered a multi million pound partnership (Who Wants to be a Millionaire?).

Overall the shortest but one of the most sweetest series of 'Fools.'
