Only Fools and Horses All About British Sitcom

 

Only foos and horses SitcomBefore Only Fools and Horses, David Jason hadn’t had a major TV role, with the exception of Open All Hours. Despite the fact that he looked nothing like his on-screen brother, he was cast for the role after Jim Broadbent turned it down.

Although set in Peckham, south London, the majority of the filming took place in and around Bristol. The exterior of ‘Nelson Mandela House’ was actually filmed at Whitemead House, in Ashton, Bristol.

Jim Broadbent was originally asked to play Del Boy. David Jason was not the producers’ first choice.

The BBC weren’t sure initially about the casting of David Jason because he and Nicholas Lyndhurst looked nothing alike. But John Sullivan disagreed. Del needed to be shorter to imply the suspected illegitimacy of the Trotters.

Elizabeth Hurley actually auditioned for the part of Rodney’s girlfriend, Cassandra. But she was turned down for the role, as it was thought she was too ‘model like’.

The series was almost called The Readies.

In the episode where Del Boy and Rodney remove a chandelier, the actors only had one shot to do a perfect scene. If Nicholas Lyndhurst or David Jason had laughed when the chandelier fell, they would have lost the episode. They were only allowed one take as the chandelier cost £6,000!

Over a dozen Reliant Regals (the three-wheeled vans) were used during the series.

Buster Merryfield, who played Uncle Albert, and was famous for his catchphrase, ‘During the war,’ was surprisingly similar to his character. He actually was a war hero and served in the Royal Artillery.

Much of Sullivan’s material for Only Fools and Horses scripts came from his real-life experiences. E.g falling through a raised bar flap, the chandelier falling and his father’s poker sessions.
