While the individual releases of the Christmas specials and the series have been excellent in terms of the content of their main features, there has been something lacking. With the exception of Strangers on the Shore which received a photo gallery (not really a reason to jump for joy), most of the Only Fools and Horses DVDs have been disappointing in terms of extra features.
This is why I rate this disc so highly. It provides an interview with the stars into what made the show great. They share some of their favourite moments and provide a unique (literally) insight into this most beloved of British sitcoms. If you want to know more about this great British institution, you can't argue with the price, so definitely consider this as a worthwhile purchase and a worthy addition to your collection.

I, along with millions of others around the world am a OFAH fanatic. So, when this DVD first came out, I thought GREAT, a chance to see some out takes, behind the scenes on the sets and some great interviews. Well, that is why I am giving this a 3 star and not any lower, as the interviews with creator David Sullivan, leads David Jason and Nick Lindhurst, not forgetting the rest of the cast, were good (great border line), but shame they couldnt allocate another hour (surely there is more to say for a show that has run for over 20 years) with more stories, include out takes. Don't get me wrong, this is a good DVD, but wish it was GREAT.

To celebrate its coming-of-age, this bumper boxed set of all the Christmas episodes from the last twenty-one years of Only Fools and Horses will tickle everyone's funny bone. All are feature-length episodes, all are classics.

The set contains all the family favourites, from the hilarious story of Del and Rodders trying to sail themselves from Hull to Amsterdam on a diamond heist in To Hull and Back, to the infamous episode when they decide to get back to nature and sell bottled spring water - Peckham Spring Water to be precise - in Mother Nature's Son. This wonderful video boxed set traces Rodney and Delboy's rags to riches ... and back to rags story, their trials of love and labour, their heart-aches and heart-breaks and the importance of friends and family.

If like me you prefered to watch the earlier antics of Del, Rodney and Grandad this is the video for you. Long Legs of he Law: Dels worst nightmare comes true when Rodders brings home his girlfriend and she just happens to be a police woman! As you can probably guess Del and Grandad provide you with side splitting laughter. In Ahes to Ashes, Del sells Triggers nans urn only to find out that it was grandads last resting place, which turns out to be one of the funniest episodes i have ever seen! A losing streak: Del keeps losing at cards so he sets up the ultimate poker game. No Greater Love: Rodney has fallen in love (again!) but is worried about her husbands release from prison which turns out to be sooner rather than later!
This Video is A Must for every Fools and Horses Fan!
I have watched every single episode of Only Fools and Horses and it amazes me that after all this time it is still the funniest british comedy series. The Trotters are timeless Characters, lets just hope they come back soon to keep us all laughing for years to come!

The local Chinese restaurant has had an annonymous tip off from a bogus health inspector to clean up its kitchen, & who just happens to be flogging some hooky paint, Del boy. Catch the hilarious antics as the paint is not quite what it seems, especially when Del paints his late mothers grave with it. Another classic comedy that can be watched again and again, order the copy now, it is well placed in any video collection.

this is by far the best box set by only fools and horses, it has all of the all time classic episodes and it is hilarious, the other bonus is that it is priced much better than in shops. In these episodes we see Del Boy and Rodders at ther best, and not forgetting Uncle ' during the war ' Albert!!! I laughed non-stop

Having seen almost, if not every episode of Only Fools And Horses, this is by far the best series. A classic program every bit watchable the 100th time. Absolutely the best.

You cant describe these last three episodes! But del and rodney really do well for themselves! If you haven't allready seen this it is a must even if you don't watch Only fools and horses, but you must watch the three in order. Overall I could watch this set every day of the week, especially when Del & Rodney dress up as batman & robin, before their car breaks down! A Must see!

Owning almost all the OFAH episodes and greatly missing any extra's this seemed the best buy.
Unfortunately the dvd doesn't live up to my expectations (my fault probably) and could have been a book instead of a dvd. I was hoping for out takes, behind the scenes footage, information on the locations and much more but all you get are interviews. Interesting but very dry (Nicholas Lyndhurst being the most enjoyable)
If you really want to know more about OFAH I suggest you visit the BBC site or any of the numerous fan sites. You can also buy the books "The complete A-Z of OFAH" or "The bilbe of Peckam". All of them much more interesting, funny and informative than this dvd.
I watched the dvd once and I guess it will be sitting on the shelf only to complete my collection.
