If you don't have the equipment to do RA4 then take the negs to a lab and ask it to do some prints. If you get good prints you will know that there was nothing wrong with the film in the first place and your dev process is fine.
Everything now points to the film being fine based on its expiry date, its having the same look as the next OK film and the fact you carried out exactly the same process with the next film and it was fine.
