Sorry, I couldn’t resist.
Seriously though, I just want to say a few things to all the Only Fools fans out there.
First off, I want to say a big thank you to you all for your continued support of the show. I am constantly taken aback and warmed by the love for the series and the characters my Dad created all those decades ago. It has been seven years since my Dad passed away and while the road since has been pretty bumpy, the passion and kindness of the fans has remained steadfast and strong, and us Sullivans truly appreciate that.
I also want to tell you that there is an Only Fools and Horses Musical on the horizon. Back in 2010 my Dad had been toying with the possibility of a stage show but sadly didn’t get the chance to commit to it. In 2015 we met with the producer, Phil McIntyre, and agreed to develop the idea. Soon after that, Paul Whitehouse came on board and things have been bubbling away ever since. I am very pleased and excited to say that the show will be launching early next year (not ‘this time next year’, early next year). I can’t say too much more at this stage, only that this will be the official, i.e. genuine, i.e. creme de la menthe Only Fools and Horses Musical. I say this because I know there are quite a few unofficial and completely unauthorised live ‘Only Fools’ shows doing the rounds, and I want you to know what’s what.
So, come next February, if you fancy a kosher trip down memory lane, a pukka laugh and good old knees-up with the Trotters and co, keep your eyes peeled for the official Only Fools and Horses Musical.
You know it makes sense.
All the best
