Del Boy Up For New Series Of Only Fools And Horses On One Condition
Not that long ago we mentioned it was 28 years to the day that the funniest scene of the cult show was screened. That's right - the legendary falling off the bar scene where Del Boy leans on a bar that isn't there.
Still brings tears to my eyes.
Anyway, clearly Sir David Jason read the article - he has gone on record to say that he would play his most famous role, Del Boy, in a New York minute. He's clearly not averse to bringing back the old classics - he's starring in Still Open All Hours, a sequel to the much loved Open All Hours where he played shop boy Granville to Ronnie Barker's Arkwright.
It's a classic and the new show is on its third series.
The only thing he wants is the right writer.
"That would be good, wouldn't it? We haven't got a writer; if we had a good writer like the lovely John Sullivan, we would, I tell you," he told The Mirror.
John Sullivan, the writer of Only Fools and Horses and many other British sitcoms, sadly passed away in 2011.

"But," as Sir Jason said. "My partner Nick Lyndhurst has gone on to other things, so you are stuck with Open All Hours."
We're not complaining, Sir Jason.
"I think the remakes are good, it's nice to see the old style that people enjoy," said Sir Jason.
"That's not to say the modern stuff isn't good, it is. A lot of people have nostalgia and like to see the old stuff."
Any Only Fools and Horses is fine with us.
