Delboy Reprise

There is an article on the Mirror website this morning which states that David Jason would like to play Delboy Trotter once again.

He is, of course, referring to the character he played in the iconic British comedy - Only Fools and Horses - which ran from 1981 to 1991 and then had many special episodes which followed. The last one aired during Christmas of 2003.

One one hand, it would be cool to see another Only Fools and Horses episode. However, in that time, some of the actors who played the secondary, yet important, characters have passed away.

We would no longer have Trigger (Rodger-Lloyd Pack) and Boycie (John Challis) for example. Those two characters alone had certain qualities which drew in the laughs.

Another key loss, since 2003, is the series' creator - John Sullivan - who passed away eleven years ago. 

I could see an Only Fools and Horses made. I'd be silly not to considering how many programmes have been brought back from the dead. However, and as I laid out, it has potential to be a miss
