  1. The dental receptionist Beverley was shouting to a patient seated behind where Derek & Colin/Trigger were stood. That was Mr James I suspect.

    I had always assumed it was a shortening of trigonometry (triggernometry) as a result of his seemingly slow-wittedness!

    This theory is slanderous and it doesn’t stick cause all of the OFAH cast is equally not physically attractive not to use term ugly just as the Roger or even worse lets take Rodney,Delboy,Cassandra, and the strippergram lady for example,none of the mentioned are even close to being considered as attractive and to use Delboy words they are all fair sort but pig ugly !!!!

      You are not entirely correct, saying he looks like a horse is to say that he had a long face, not necessarily ugly. As for the rest of the cast, have you ever heard the expression “Beauty is in the eye of the beholder” ?
