    I’ve always wondered why they wanted Jim Broadbent to play DelBoy as John Sullivan always made it clear he wanted there to be obvious physical differences between Del and Rodney to cast doubt over the parentage.
    Jim Broadbent, however, is just as tall as Nicholas Lyndhurst who was already cast as Rodney when he was approached.
    I’m sure he would have been a success as Del as he is an outstanding actor and the scripts would still have been genius, but he always says his self his greatest contribution to British comedy was turning the part of DelBoy down.

    You left out Slater’s participation in the 1960 Jolly Boys Outing.
