Only Fools and Horses lost its way years ago - so I wasn't surprised to discover that this series was a steaming pile of horse manure. How anyone can find this amusing is beyond me. The only thing that brings a smile to my face is Boycie's laugh. The new characters are weak and the story lines are poor. OFAH will always remain one of England's finest comedies but John Sullivan hasn't produced anything funny in years. Comedies such as Blackadder and The Office knew when to call it a day, even when the public were demanding another series. It's a shame that John Sullivan decided to run the OFAH name into the ground, because up till the last few Christmas Specials it was truly flawless. It seems that Sick Boy's unifying theory of life from Trainspotting was right: "At one point you've got it, then you lose it, and it's gone forever." The King is dead... Long live the king.
