Only Fools And Horses, the enduring comedy classic focused on the inept Del Boy and Rodney Trotter, is brought to book form with this third collection of classic scripts. Remember the moment where Del and friends accidently blow up a coach? Or the wonderful final episode, in which the Trotter brothers dreams came true when they finally became millionaires? Relive these moments and more in the third volume of "The Bible Of Peckham". As well as all of the feature length episodes between 1986 and 1996, there are also scripts for various special episodes, such as 1997's Comic Relief edition. Also included is a brilliant Nags Head quiz. This is a wonderful buy which will take you ages to finish reading. Lovely Jubbly!

Four of the funniest episodes from an early series of Only Fools and Horses, starring David Jason (Del Boy), Nicholas Lyndhurst (Rodney) and Lennard Pearce (Grandad). These don't suffer from being transferred from TV to audio - they're just as funny, and it's possible to pick up more of the quick comments as there's nothing to look at. Grandad's contribution, sorely missed in later series is a treasure.
One of the true cornerstones of British comedy - a must own set.

Being an avid Only Fools fan, I was delighted to see that there was a CD I could listen to in my car. However, this appears to be simply a recording direct from the TV episodes and not something specifically designed for an audio version. As I am familiar with these episodes I could remember what would have been happening on screen in the TV version. However, as much of the comedy here relies on being able to also see what is going on, if you are not familiar with the screen versions of these episodes, much of the comedy is lost and it can be a little confusing to keep track of what the characters are doing.

A great double CD this from early in the series. My only gripe is that the episodes are not in the order that the CD says they are in. That said, John Sullivan is a superb writer who can really take you from utter sadness to moments of wonderful comedy as we have come to know and love from Fools and Horses. Rodney becomes the Peckham Pouncer in 'Wanted,' Del Boy gets taken in by antique dealer Miranda Davenport but gets his revenge in 'Yesterday Never Comes' and you're left thinking that Del is really going to become a grass in 'May the Force be with you' but Jim Broadbent really takes the emotions on a roller coaster ride in 'Thicker than Water' playing Del and Rodneys father who turns up after eighteen years away. Supported by the usual greats, Trigger, Boycie, and the much missed Grandad, the Fools and Horses team are at their best.

This book has got to be the most comprehensive fools and horses book, second only to 'the only fools and horses story' by Steve Clark! I was not at all dissapointed by this book, but as so many people have learned, it's hard to be dissapointed by only fools and horses. I whole heartedly recommend this book to any fan!!!

Just as funny as the TV series and in more depth - any fan of British comedy will appreciate this.

Six of my favourite episode of Only Fools and horses. Wriiten by John Sullivan. The most popular situation comedy, produced by the BBC in recent years.
Starred David Jason, Nicolas Lyndhurst and Lennard Pearce (As grandad)
A bargain set of CDs, well worth buying, and just the item to out on an ipod, to take on holiday, as a pleasant alternative to listening to music. I would recommend this item to anybody who loves fools and horses.

Scripts are the new comedic way to enjoy your favourite shows. We have had this at home now for a week and my wife is enjoying me reading out sequences from the episodes all day long! A must for fans (like me) and philistines who need some fun for Chrimbo.

IF YOU LIKE "ONLY FOOLS AND HORSES" THEN YOU WILL LOVE THIS. I THINK IT HELPS IF YOU HAVE SEEN THE TV/DVD VERSION, BUT WITHOUT DOUBT A "MUST HAVE". THE ONLY DISAPOINTMENT , ITS A SHAME THE WHOLE SERIES IS NOT AVAILABLE

No greater comedy has come our way than Only Fools and Horses. Thank you John Sullivan for writing such a magnificent sitcom that will stand the test of time. The scripts are just as funny as the show.
