Albert Gladstone Trotter ( Buster Merryfield) — Shortly after the death of Lennard Pearce, it was decided that a new older family member should be brought in, which eventually led to "Uncle Albert", Grandad's estranged younger brother. Merryfield was an inexperienced amateur actor at the time, but was selected because he appeared to fit the description of an old sailor, especially with his distinctive white " Captain Birdseye" beard. [20] Albert first appeared at Grandad's funeral, and soon moved in with Del and Rodney. [21] His wartime experiences with the Royal Navy became one of the show's running gags, [21] usually beginning with the words "During the war...". [22] Merryfield died in 1999 and Albert's death was written into the next episode. [23] [24]

The series made its debut on Blu-ray on 6 December 2021, with a three-disc set entitled Only Fools and Horses: The 80s Specials. It featured the five feature length Christmas specials broadcast from 1985 to 1989, restored and remastered in high-definition. For the restoration process, the original 16mm film elements were cleaned and rescanned, while the standard-definition videotape elements were "digitally reprocessed" and upscaled to HD.
