#2 - Rock & Chips

Season 1 - Episode 1 - Aired 1/25/2010

Set in the 1960s, Joan Trotter is in an unhappy marriage with the work-shy Reg, with whom she has a teenage son, Derek ("Del Boy"). However, the reappearance in Peckham of bank robber, "art connoisseur" and womaniser Freddie Robdal, recently released after a ten year prison sentence, would bring about changes in Joan's life. Rock & Chips centred on the relationships between the glamorous Joan Trotter, Del's useless father Reg, the safe-cracker Freddie Robdal and the young Del Boy. It featured teenage incarnations of some of the original show's regular characters, including Boycie, Trigger, Denzil, and Jumbo Mills. The Trotter family haven't yet moved into their flat in Nelson Mandela House, but there are some recognisable settings such as the mean streets of Peckham and the Nag's Head circa 1960
