an absolute gem of a show
10 June 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

this show is just great. i have followed sir David Jason career for about 10 years. being from the states we miss a lot of the great shows from the u.k. i have seen and bought entire series of darling buds, only fools and horses, a touch of frost, open all hrs, porridge, have seen sir David in many roles and it seems that whatever he does is just masterful, i wish there were more of this show, i hope that he ( sir David ) will have more to do in the business, the u.k. has one of the finest actors i have seen. the one that wrote before me saying that this wasn't that good must not have seen the many shows and faces and characters that sir David has done.he has done comedy great to playing an excellent cop in touch of frost to this playing a criminal i think this is just great. thank you David Jason and hopefully more to come from you...
