    What was the missing line?

    what a film do Grandad and Rodney watch the beginning of the episode? does anybody know?

    I think we are going to have to accept the fact, that the line has been removed forever.

    there is no way a piece of dialogue (which had been removed due to somebody’s death) would be restored back into the episode.

    even if – a new boxset was released, with all missing scenes intact – I still think that line would be missing – that wouldn’t be added back (in my opinion).

    I do find cutting that line a bit extreme.

    Lennard Pearce was a professional, he would have wanted the show to go on – he wouldn’t have wanted the great OFAH fans robbed of that piece of dialogue being cut.

    I mean it’s not like Del said : ‘I wish grandad dead’ all he said was: ‘if grandad was dead or alive’

    In my opinion series 3 is perfection. In fact series 3,4 and ‘To Hull and Back’ is where the chemistry of the actors, Jason, Lyndhurst, Pearce and Merrifield, was at it’s best. The humour was before it’s time the acting top draw and the story lines so clever and detailed they are still to this day mind blowing.

      Couldnt agree more with series 3 being perfection, most people say 6 is the best, but for me series 3 is by far the greatest. Although i wasnt as keen on series 4 if im honest, still great because its OFAH, but dont enjoy it as much as the others for some reason.

        My favourite series too, agree with you both. They really nailed it acting wise, the camaraderie of the lads, Del’s drive and buzz for life, he’s really sharp at this point and clearly in charge of looking after the family. The fact the episodes were only 30 minutes left you wanting more.

    30 years old today, my favourite Christmas episode.

    i know its a long shot but i was wondering if you find the cut to this episode with the missing line

      Somebody had the clip on youtube a few months ago – however I’m not sure if the person who had uploaded it, had taken it down – but you can always check
