Bbc - Only Fools And Horses Set For Tv Return After 10 Years

Bbc bosses are eyeing a shock new episode of hit British comedy Only Fools And Horses more than 10 years after it last aired.

The award-winning sitcom, starring Sir David Jason and Nicholas Lyndhurst as two hapless market traders, ran from 1981 until 2003 when it ended after 63 episodes.

The show's creator John Sullivan died in 2011, which seemingly ended any hope of the comedy returning to Tv screens, but now it has emerged his sons Jim and Dan have been working on a new episode.

Jason has been handed the outline for the show's return but is yet to agree to step once more into his character Derek 'Del Boy' Trotter's shoes.

He tells British newspaper The Times, "I've had a quick look at the treatment and it's very good, but I'm saving the proper read-through until there are no distractions. It's not the sort of thing you can muck about with."

In a 2004 Bbc poll, Only Fools and Horses was voted Britain's greatest ever sitcom.
