Written by Richard Webber, a man responsible for many first-class publications of some of the most popular British sitcoms and movies of all-time, as well as the creator and writer of 'Only Fools and Horses' himself, the late genius John Sullivan, this book is a truly great read about Britain's best loved comedy series.
'The Complete A-Z of Only Fools and Horses' is a lavishing illustrated, well-presented guide to everything you've ever wanted to know about the BBC's baby, and the perfect companion for any ardent, or new fan. There is new material in the shape of fresh interviews with those fine actors Sir David Jason and Nicholas Lyndhurst who have given pleasure to countless people across the world as Del Boy and Rodney, contributions from many of the show's other most popular players, as well as the people who worked behind-the-scenes.
There had been several other books about 'Only Fools' before this landmark 2002 publication, but never one quite as comprehensive as this. Fans will find everything in here, from cast lists, episode reviews, actor profiles and cut scenes, to previously unpublished scripts including one for an American pilot, and lots of interesting titbits, anecdotes and stories throughout. The illustrations are equally as worthwhile as the text, including many that had been previously unseen, including those in a complete section titled 'Peckham Photo Gallery', which consists of wonderful vintage photographs of the cast when they were children, and memorabilia from the start of their careers.
If you're a real fan of 'Only Fools and Horses' and collect the merchandise as well as enjoy the episodes, then 'The Complete A-Z of Only Fools and Horses' is a publication not to be missed. As informative as it is entertaining, this book takes you on a journey as to how the show came about, and how it became the nation's most treasured comedy series, with a dream team of actors that were second to none.
