    Only Fools Sport relief 2018 special …? This is something which could be done yearly and can be really fun. Although would be better if was 20-25 mins long. Jim Sullivan could really have fun with this and there would be no worries about legacy etc. It is something which wouldn’t overly impact actors schedules as is just a one off every year. Lovely Jubbly!

    How about a spin off with Ted and Albert Trotter? I bet it would be fun to see the old timers as young men and the escapades they got up to.
    More Rock and Chips would also be great to see. The young cast they assembled for it were great and James Buckley personified Del’s cheeky chappy attitude brilliantly.

    How about books? Short stories or maybe even audio comedies? Like BigFinish do with Doctor Who? Only Fools has captured the hearts of so many! In my opinion, a finale of Only Fools and Horses could work! A one hour Xmas Special that really is THE END. Tie all the knots and finish things up setting it for another spin off perhaps? Or with Green Green Grass.
    Can imagine Del sitting down in the chair where Grandad and Uncle Albert sat and realising that he’s turning into that third aged character. I’m sure John Sullivan’s son will have the magic of his father in his blood! :-)

      Yeah, i think a book or series of books would be a good idea. That way they wouldn’t be held back with the actors ages and would be free to write original stories from any part of the OFAH timeline. I am against a new episode though, the last trilogy, although good in parts, was far off the pace.

        Maybe a new spinoff all together, or Del and Rodney in Green, Green, Grass, or a film version of Only Fools and Horses made for the cinema, Del and Rodney go to Las Vegas?

        Or what about an audio with animation over the top, but set it in the older times, and could mention other episodes in thst time. The only issue obviously with setting it in older times would be no voice for Albert, trigger, sid or mike

      I personally would love to see Only Fools back, preferably at Christmas because that’s what Christmas is all about, surprises!
      Just a one hour special as you say Doug. In 2011 it was going to make a comeback. Could some of John’s scripts for that be used? I know some were used for the Sports Relief sketch.
      There was talk of Del celebrating his 65th Birthday. We could see Rodney’s daughter Joan now all grown up. Give a proper goodbye to Trigger with his funeral. They did it with Grandad and Albert?
      Who cares if everyone looks a little older. I’ve grown up with these characters and it’s not just about comedy it’s also about real life which is why people love it so much.
