Another TV blast from the past!!

Post by BarryTaylor » Tue Oct 08, 2013 2:58 pm

Hot on the heels of the news that Birds of a Feather is returning, albeit on ITV, the BBC announced yesterday that Open All Hours is to return for a Christmas special!

Whats the betting that this is a reaction to BOAF? I wonder if they tried to bring back Only Fools and Horses first??

Open All Hours? Without Ronnie Barker? That's criminal.

I prefered Only Fools And Horses when it was just the three in the flat and no women involved. Love to see that come back.

What? Nev-ah. Not without the great RB. Whatever next? The surviving AWP lads re-creating 'Dads Army'?!?

They brought back AWP without Gary Holton and the Special was done without Pat Roach, I reckon it can be done, its just a question of how well David Jason can pull it off.

I do hope Granville is still wearing that cardigan and riding his bike with the basket. Hope the dodgy old till is still there that nearly takes off their fingers.

This could be a disaster!
Maybe if David Jason played Arwright it would work!
He always did a good impression of him in the early series.
