Did You Know?


When ITV wanted to repeat the programme some years after it was originally shown, all the cast gave their permission with the exception of 'David Jason' who vetoed the plan on the grounds that "he looked raw in those days and he was not anxious to share that with his public", thus denying other cast members of much-needed repeat fees.

Excellent early David Jason
16 November 2007 | by (Wigan) – See all my reviews

With the obvious exception of Fools & Horses, this was in my opinion David Jason's finest series.

Coming straight after his TV debut on 'Do Not Adjust Your Set!', these 13 episodes revealed a mastery of comic timing not seen since the old silent movie days. By comparison, Porridge, Open All Hours and that awful series 'Lucky Man' did not come close.

I believe Jason banned the series being repeated because it showed him at his rawest. Shame on him. A new generation deserves to enjoy this. The series actually flopped in the ratings but that is most likely because it was shown against 'The Brothers' which aired on BBC at the same time, before VCRs were commonplace.

BTW, I have only just noticed that his long suffering assistant, Spencer, was played by Mark Eden ; Alan Bradley off Coronation Street. I am amazed he didn't try to murder Edgar Briggs!!!!
