Only Fools and Horses (UK)

For 15 years, Brothers Derek 'Del boy' and Rodney Trotter of 'Trotters Independant Traders PLC' have entertained us both with Del's extreme optimism and scams and, quite simply, Rodney's facial expressions upon hearing those scams. Throughout the years, Grandad died and the equally funny Uncle Albert came to live with them, the brothers married and Del Boy had a son, Damien.

'Only Fools And Horses' Sketch To Appear On Sport Relief
Dodgy dealers Del Boy and Rodney Trotter are to return to British TV screens for the first time in more than 10 years, the BBC has confirmed. The much-loved south Londoners, played by David Jason and Nicholas Lyndhurst, will feature in a short Only Fools and Horses sketch for this year's Sport Relief in March. The show, which ran from 1981-2003, was regularly voted Britain's best sitcom. The show was created by writer John Sullivan, who died aged 64 in 2011.

    For the sixth series, production relocated to Bristol, but was never actually filmed in Peckham, just other bits of the capital. But they had to film away from London because it was tougher and more expensive to get licenses to film. It was also harder to film there without attracting a crowd wanting autographs or just asking questions right before they were about to film a scene. Shooting outdoor scenes were than moved to Bristol, but red buses were put in the background to imply London.

    'David Jason' (qv ) described the end of the show as "very emotional and difficult to compute. We all knew this wasn't the kind of experience that comes twice in your life. What a series. So many brilliant moments and lines; such clever writing. (John) Sullivan was a traditionalist, in a way: he made the characters do the work and they didn't need to resort to extremities of language or action. Yet there was such tremendous light and shade. Only Fools had a death, it had a miscarriage, it had a birth...the more John saw how we worked together, the more he felt he could push into areas where comedy didn't ever go. It was great, honest stuff and it touched people's lives. We had most of the nation behind us, really, when we properly got going".
