Quotes

Francis Fulford: [after mentioning some of his ancestors who were careless with money] The only way to keep an estate like this together is not to take your eye off the ball, to be careful, not to gamble. That's why we've held our land and our house for 800 years. Not, that is, that we haven't had the odd complete cretin, but luckily we haven't two in a row. I mean, the old rule of thumb is a family and an estate can survive one idiot, but can't survive two.

"The end result was 5,000 dead Frenchmen, which was a satisfactory result all round"
22 September 2019 | by johnboescoulthardSee all my reviews

I was introduced to the eponymous family from its feature on TV Heaven Telly Hell, where it was recommended by Johnny Vegas. The reality show depicts the classic English tale of the impoverished gentry family but in the modern era and through the antics of a certain Francis Fulford - an insane and profane man with a risible accent and prejudices who is in some ways a modern Lord Alconleigh. The ancestral home is Tudor but the roots go all the way back to Richard the Lionheart; and just to think of this esteemed lineage, stately home and 3,000 acres of farmland arriving at the doorstep of somebody so gormless as Francis "The F****er" Fulford Esq. is reason enough to watch the show.
