A fitting tribute to 'Only Fools' and John Sullivan's legacy
23 December 2016 | by studioATSee all my reviews

'Only Fools and Horses' has been brought back many, many times, and fans will spend the rest of time debating when that end should have been. However this final outing for the Trotter brothers is pretty harmless, it's for charity and acts as a tribute to the much missed Roger Lloyd Pack, who played lovable Trigger, and John Sullivan, who wrote the show.

The nice thing for fans, other than seeing Sir David Jason and Nicholas Lyndhurst back in their roles was that in terms of writing this sketch was in safe hands, with Jim and Dan Sullivan (John's sons) writing very much in their Dad's style and using some of his unused dialogue.

Is the sketch funny? It has its moments. David Beckham does a decent job and there are some nice laughs along the way.

The final joke though, with the homage to falling through the bar and Beckham handing John Sullivan's grandson a football are the moments that this sketch becomes iconic though.

I wouldn't want to see any more sketches like this produced, but as a one off this isn't bad.
