David Jason claimed no-one ever offered him a corner shop in Doncaster, on the grounds of his expertise as Granville, nor has anyone ever offered him a flat in Peckham on the grounds of his expertise as Del Boy from Only Fools and Horses (1981). See more »
Arkwright is supposed to be engaged (on and off) to Nurse Gladys Emmanuel, yet in several episodes, he is wearing a wedding ring. It's particularly noticeable when he's counting money from the till. See more »

The series showed northern England in its Blackest humour.
G,gggranville, very capably played by the very naive David Jason, playing as the assistant to Ronnie Barker, playing the tight fisted, finger on the scales "Arkwright" whose life revolved around nurse Ggggggladys and cast with the most amazing cash register come man trap the producer could find. The series showed northern England in its Blackest humour. Granville's dreams about even hold a woman in his arms were so sensitively acted. Good clean fun with no violence, filth or malice. A great show.
