    It’s always bothered me that there are zero laughs at the ‘Drinking Pimms cups at Hendon Regatta’ joke.

    The signpost is in Peggs Lane, Dorset.

    Can’t post hyperlinks, but you can either google Peggs Lane or on google maps its Farrington and its a reverse T intersection just above the lake at fontmell brook.

    John Sullivan hits his stride in this episode. Some of the rhythms of speech are breathtaking.

    I noticed that the fake laughter at the part when the chandelier falls seems to play just before it begins to fall.

    See the scene I’m talking about here: http://www.dailymotion.com/video/x18flnm_only-fools-and-horses-a-touch-of-glass-crashing-chandelier_shortfilms

    I don’t understand the interview comments about this episode. I saw an interview with Nicholas Lyndhurst where he said that Ray Butt made a big fuss about them not laughing after the chandelier fell as it cost £6000 and they could only afford one take. He says that they had to contain their laughter for a long time until someone finally said cut. This doesn’t seem to tie up with what you see in the episode. In the episode the camera is behind Del and Rodney when the chandelier falls, but it almost immediately cuts to a close up of the chandelier hitting the floor, and then cuts back to behind Del and Rodney where you see the chandelier sitting on the floor. Surely they could have done the last shot any number of times as the chandelier is already on the floor?

      He was referring to the scene where Del and Rodney stand staring open-mouthed at each other. After the chandelier hits the floor the camera zooms out to Del and Rodney staring at each other from the side. That was the scene Nicholas was referring to.

    Although John Sullivan’s father didn’t want the subject to be written about, Sullivan did say he saw the funny side the moment after it was broadcast.
