On the 8th September 1981 over 9 million people sat down at their televisions to watch a brand new show called ‘Only Fools and Horses’. Little did we know that this show would one day become one of the top British television programmes of all-time.
Over a total of 10 years, 7 series, 64 episodes and 16 Christmas specials we followed the trials and tribulations of ambitious market trader Derek ‘Del Boy’ Trotter (played by David Jason) and his idealistic younger brother Rodney Trotter (played by Nicholas Lyndhurst) in their attempts to get rich! Supported by a cast of colourful characters including Grandad, Trigger, Boycie and Uncle Albert.
This time next year we’ll be millionaires…
No other TV show has influenced British culture as much. Critically and popularly acclaimed, the series received numerous awards. It was voted Britain’s Best Sitcom in 2004 and in a BBC poll Del Boy was ranked fourth on their list of the 100 Greatest TV Characters.
Its success spawned a successful spin-off series, ‘The Green Green Grass,’ a Sport Relief special episode guest starring David Beckham, and even a musical adaptation of the show was created which launched at the Theatre Royal Haymarket in London’s West End!
The final episode in which the Trotters finally became millionaires was watched by 24.3 million viewers and holds the record for the highest UK audience for a sitcom episode.
So to celebrate the 40th anniversary of one of Britain’s greatest TV shows a number of brand new officially licensed Only Fools and Horses Commemoratives have been released… ‘lovely jubbly’!
