Only Fools and Horses

John Sullivan's most successful series follows the wheeling and dealing of Peckham market trader "Del Boy" Trotter and his much younger brother Rodney. They live on the thirteenth floor of Nelson Mandela House with their grandad and, after his death, with their Uncle Albert. Associates from the locality including used car salesman Boycie, road sweeper Trigger, man-with-a-van Denzil, and Nag's Head landlord Mike are variously roped into their exploits. Only Fools was a slow burner. Initially modest viewing figures were boosted by repeats during a BBC strike.
