Can't say I'm too excited. Though I'll see what the Xmas episode is like before I decide whether to watch it. :):

I liked it years ago, but in the last decade i've not really liked it much. It might be because the characters they are playing are all a bunch of total bellends

Only Fools... without John Sullivan writing it? Not wise. It was dying a death in the last few series. It had run it's course anyway. Leave it be.

Scott you fucking plonker. :D

John was one of my surprise clients some ten / twelve years back, a charming man and to write for Ronnie Barker, there can be no better accolade.

I worked on the TV/satellite distribution at his home near Kingswood after ;
Sky refused to come out (unless we send out our special heights team sir - keeeerrrrchiiiiinggggggg !),
spent some time with family going through detail of how many rooms should have been receiving TV from their system in the first place,
sorted out a really badly installed satellite dish fitted by the monkey from Sky some four years previously and then,
got to meet his son and some of the staff at Shazam in Reigate when they needed pointers on the rip-off pricing wiring to their conference room by a company local to them.

The departure of Roger Lloyd-Pack from the Trotter pack means a re-run could never be the same, despite the vailant attempts to recreate the same atmosphere by James who did rather well with Green Green Grass.

The family need to get a writer or three to continue John's legacy, no wallowing in the past, except to reminisce and provide fleeting flashbacks.

So many hints by David Jason in that last link that imply it will never happen. "If we could get a great writer" etc...

Its like asking me if i would ever consider buying a Ferrari..... Yes, IF i won the lottery and had a few hundred grand doing nothing. :D
