More About the Author

Steve Clark has been specialising in behind-the-scenes reports on television programmes for more than twenty years. He is author of The Only Fools and Horses Story (BBC Books, 1998), The World of Jonathan Creek (BBC Books, 1999), On Set (Blake Publishing, 1999), Captain Corelli's Mandolin - The Illustrated Film Companion (Headline, 2001), Only Fools and Horses: The Official Inside Story (Splendid Books, 2011) and The British Television Location Guide (Splendid Books, 2013). He lives in Hampshire with his wife and their two children. He doesn't drive a Robin Reliant... but he'd secretly quite like one.

Sir David Jason says: "Author Steve Clark's book The Official Inside Story is the definitive history of Only Fools and Horses. He is the expert on the series. It is nice to know that the legacy of this classic show lives on for a new generation. As Del Boy would say: 'You know it makes sense!'"

Dan Sullivan says: "For more than two decades Steve Clark worked closely with Only Fools and Horses and its creator, my Dad, John Sullivan OBE. On set and location he has extensively interviewed both cast and crew, and that is why I can happily recommend this book as the only truly Inside and Official telling of the Only Fools and Horses story available."

What a detailed book: it gives a fascinating insight into this great series. Loads of insights into its writer and stars and that fascinating behind-the-scenes information - including lots of stuff about Jonathan's windmill - makes you feel that you've really got behind-the-scenes. There's also the story of the show's origins and revelations about the stars who didn't get the lead part. Fans of mystery solving also get the chance to solve a new Creek mystery which unfolds through the book. I want to know the solution!! Highly Recommended

Format: Paperback
This book is an excellent coverage of the various aspects of production of Jonathan Creek. The writer and the three principal actors have lengthy interviews. The book is lavisly illustrated in colour and it is very attractively presented.
The first portion is a history of how the series came about - and nearly didn't; of how Alan Davies was cast in the role of Creek and the frustrations David Renwick had in getting the series made.
The middle section has interviews with the cast.
At the end each of the episodes has a double-page spread with a full cast list and some valuable production notes and the odd story.
A superior example of an examination of the production of a TV series.
