Details on the Only Fools documentary that is set to be released on channel Gold this year have been released on the show’s official Facebook page. Fans will be excited to know that the said page has released a full update detailing what viewers can expect to see.
The page details how the series will feature Sir David and his fellow cast members analyzing their favorite memories and experiences from the show. Viewers will get access to unreleased footage and re-created moments from the family and friends that Del Boy called his own. There will also be behind-the-scenes footage of how stories were developed and how certain scenes came to be. To sum it up, viewers will receive full access to everything that made Only Fools so iconic.
The iconic British actor will talk about his television debut on Do Not Adjust Your Set alongside Eric Idle and Michael Palin, who went on to become Monty Python stars. Sir David will also discuss the comedians and actors who inspired him, including his mentor, Ronnie Barker.
When asked about the documentary, Sir David said the following:
“It has taken a lot of persuasion for me to take part in an official documentary about Only Fools & Horses but, as time has gone on, it seems to have been imprinted in television history and I thought it was only right that I tried to give an accurate insight into how the show was put together.”
He went on to explain what he thinks of the show: “In doing so, I hope we can create a definitive program which appeals to the many fans which have been the stalwarts of the show and are growing with the next generation. It should be fun!”
In addition to the documentary, Gold will be making a three-part tribute to the man who played Del Boy, titled David Jason: My Life on Screen. As the said actor says: “Fingers crossed, it should make for an enjoyable programme.”
In this series, Sir David will look back at his television career and the people who took him where he is today. The documentary is set to be told by the British actor himself, making it ever-more personal and honest. He will also take viewers to the locations where he spent most of his time, including his childhood home in Finchley, as well as the locations where sets for Only Fools & Horses, A Touch of Frost and The Darling Buds of May were situated.
To end things off, another recent quote from Sir David: “As my life on screen has now gathered variety and quantity, I am hoping that I can offer a documentary which gives the audience an accurate range of my work. Fingers crossed, it should make for an enjoyable programme to reflect the enjoyment I’ve had in making each and every show.”
