Brilliant, classic British TV. MY favourite episode in season 3 is the Friday the 14th episode where Del, Rodney and granddad got on a poaching trip only to end up in the middle of an escaped prisoner hunt. It is classic, but then so are the other episodes, they make you laugh again and again despite having seem them before, true comedy genius.
After two highly enjoyable series of 'Only Fools and Horses', in which the show showed great potential, the third season saw the show go onto the next level, with a variety of interesting and different situations for the dodgy Trotter clan to enjoy, including that of comedy horror. This was the most adventurous series yet, and the cast by now had everything together.
John Sullivan was really upping the game in 1983 and, in my opinion, penned the best episode so far at the time: 'Friday the 14th', which remains one of my all time favourites. How can you not resist the idea of having Del, Rodney and Granddad visiting Cornwall to do a spot of fishing, only to encounter a crazed axe-murderer on the loose? Other great episodes include 'Yesterday Never Comes', where Del thinks he is going to find romance with an antiques dealer, or, in has words: "a posh tart", and 'May the Force Be with You', which introduces Jim Broadbent into the show as Del's old school 'chum' Slater. Each episode is first class, and you won't find one dud on here.
