Now together in one collection, every episode of Britain's best-loved comedy series! Crafty cockney con man Derek Trotter (David Jason) dreams of making a fortune, but each dodgy deal and shady scheme always seems to end in disaster. And then there's his family to look after: lovable but hapless kid brother, Rodney; doddery old Grandad; and ex-seafaring Uncle Albert. This hilarious, life-affirming series is one of the most popular on British television, and the annual Only Fools and Horses Christmas Specials became as fundamental a British holiday tradition as Christmas crackers and the Queen's Address to the Commonwealth. Only Fools and Horses boasts 13 top comedy awards including two Best Comedy BAFTAs, and the series finale, "Sleepless in Peckham" was viewed by 2 out of 3 British households on Christmas Day, 2003. As Del-boy himself would say, "Lovely jubbly!"

"Why do only fools and horses work?" bemoans the theme tune for this long-running BBC sit-com, and it is this question which underlies the exploits of Derek 'Delboy' Trotter (David Jason) and his younger brother Rodney (Nicholas Lyndhurst). Written by John Sullivan and first aired in 1981, the series charts the fortunes of the two siblings as they attempt to escape from their dreary council block existence via a string of ill-fated get-rich-quick scams...Ultimately, Delboy and Rodney appeal to the British public's love of the underdog: we know they are destined to fail, and any success they achieve is likely to prove short-lived, yet we will them on anyway because of their charming naivety and plucky perseverance...The series officially ended in 1991, but regular repeat showings and a string of one-off Christmas specials has ensured its popularity has remained undimmed. Polls regularly cite it as the favourite British comedy series of all time.
