Traders and brothers, Rodney and Derek "Del Boy" Trotter, work from the streets of London buying what they can from the auctions and flogging it down at the market, always saying "This time next year, we'll be millionaires". Their Granddad and, later in the series, Uncle Albert also live in their council flat as the wise old man saying their next scheme won't work and offering in their jokes.
The very first episode, 'Big Brother', originally had a different theme tune, a saxophone theme by Ronnie Hazlehurst. Some later showings have replaced this score with the regular opening and closing songs. (On either version, a variation on Hazlehurst's original score can still be heard in the middle of the episode, as Del-Boy tries to sell the load of dodgy suitcases). See more »
Classic comedy is a term which is often overused but it fits Only Fools & Horses perfectly. In particular series 1-4 are absolutely brilliant. John Sullivan made you fall in love with the characters so that you could laugh and share in their experiences down through the years as if you actually knew them. The creation of Del Boy as a character was inspired and played faultlessly by David Jason. I felt the later episodes and specials were vastly inferior to the earlier ones but were still well worth a watch.
