The cast from hit BBC sitcom, Only Fools and Horses are set to return to our TV screens.

David Jason, who will forever be remembered for playing Derek Trotter, along with Nicholas Lyndhurst, who was the equally brilliant Rodney Trotter are in discussions to create a documentary based on the show.

Only Fools has recently turned 35-years old and the former market-trading Trotter brothers are set to appear in a documentary, commemorating the shows success and legacy since first broadcast, in September 1981.

The news of a potential documentary hit the news today

Only Fools and Horses is a British sitcom based in Peckham, London and written by John Sullivan. The show features two brothers, who are hellbent on becoming millionaires come-what-may.

Derek ‘Del Boy’ Trotter is the more confident of the two and an ambitious market trader, who often ridicules his younger – less streetwise – brother, Rodney.

A source has revealed that: “David and Nicholas are really keen to do the documentary and it’s all coming together now.

“The show is is a cult sitcom and they have fans all around the world.

Although it hasn’t run for thirteen years, fans are still hopeful they will do another Christmas special”.

The first series of Only Fools and Horses was broadcast in 1981 and became such a hit after the second series was repeated, that they filmed 7 series and 15 specials in total.

Including the Christmas specials, there’s around 80 episodes of Only Fools and Horses to document. Fans will also be hoping that light is shed on why the two specials, Licensed to Drill and The Robin Flies at Dawn were never released and are very difficult to source.

The documentary is yet to be purchased for broadcast by a channel, but it is believed that Gold, who broadcast re-runs of the show on a daily basis, are interested.
