Series 4, Episode 2

Del & Rodney pay their final respects to their grandad (actor Lennard Pearce had recently passed away in real life), but they end up lumbered with his brother, their uncle Albert, when he is left behind deliberately at the wake.

An important episode which was used to bridge the two characters of Grandad and Uncle Albert and set up the continuation of the series. Many fans have long discussed the comparison between the two characters. Personally I think the series improved and Merryfield became a huge success with the show.
